The Le Blon was a French automobile manufactured in Paris by Le Blon Frères in 1898 or from 1898-1900. It was a voiturette similar to the Benz, with a 4 hp 'V' twin-cylinder engine and belt drive to the rear axle. Some cars were sold in England under the name "Lynx".
It is possible that 23-year-old pioneer motorist Hubert Le Blon was one of the brothers. After the Le Blon Frères business closed (1899-1900) he started to work with Léon Serpollet whose factory in the 18th arrondissement was about 10 km away. Le Blon competed in the Gardner-Serpollet steam car from 1901 onwards.
