Oscar Motor Cars Ltd. was a short-lived British automobile manufacturer that operated in London from 1912 to 1914. Founded by Edward Joel Pennington, the company aimed to produce affordable cars for the mass market. Oscar cars were notable for their innovative design, featuring a lightweight chassis and a unique transverse-mounted engine layout. Despite their promising start, the company faced financial difficulties and was unable to sustain production beyond a few years. Oscar cars are now rare collectibles, with only a handful known to exist today. While the company’s tenure in the automotive industry was brief, Oscar Motor Cars left a mark as a pioneer in automotive design and engineering, showcasing early attempts to make automobiles accessible to a wider audience.
