OBC (sometimes called BCS for Beckmann Cars Sweden AB) or Ottmar Beckman Cars AB was a car manufacturer in Mantorp, Sweden. In 1974 they presented a two seated mid engined sports car called OBC Mantorp (named after the Mantorp Park race track). The design was somewhat similar to the Lotus Elan, but with a more rounded front. It was powered by a BMW engine mated to a Porsche gearbox. Both the chassis and bodywork was in fibreglass. The company planned a production rate of five a day with 100 employees, but it never entered production.[1][2]
