André Py (active 1899) was a French automobile designer.[1]

His voiturette was made by Cie des Automobiles du Sud Ouest of France in 1899. The Leon Bollee-like 3-wheeler had dos-a-dos seating for two and a 3 ½ hp horizontal single-cylinder engine. It also had the bizarre feature of front-wheel drive and rear-wheel steering.
