Edelsbrunner Automobile München was a small Bavarian car company based in Munich, Germany.

At the beginning of 1990 the company began producing a small series of two cars in the style of the thirties. Inspired by legendary driver Tazio Nuvolari, the first Roadster was the EAM Nuvolari S1. In the presence of the sister and other relatives of Tazio Nuvolari, the Nuvolari S1 was formally presented and introduced to the public.

Unfortunately the German market at that time was very small and these cars were not successful.

“The Truth” about the Origins of the EAM Nuvolari S1.

The car is actually a Vincent MPH from the UK. EAM bought one in Kit form from Dwornik Engineering in 1990 - 1993 and then without the consent of Dwornik Engineering decided that they would copy it directly, re-name it and produce them.

EAM might have been inspired by Nuvolari but the cars design is very much British and loosely based on the 1934 Riley MPH.

Their first model, in Green, was actually exhibited at the Munchen Motor show. More information about these cars, still in production in Oxford UK, can be found from the Vincent MPH website.

There were two types:

The Nuvolari S1 was only produced in small numbers and the R1 model R1 did not get beyond a prototype.
