The Léon Paulet was an automobile manufactured in Marseille, France between 1922 and 1925.[1] The Type 6AB used a seven-bearing overhead camshaft 3.4 litre engine, designed by former Delage engineer Arthur Michelat.[1]

The engine had a more than passing resemblance to the Hispano-Suiza, and they took Léon Paulet to court. Paulet was ordered to cease production of the Michelat designed engine.[1] Rather than try to find another engine, Paulet ended production after approximately 20 cars had been built.[1]
