The car manufacturer LORYC was founded in January 1920 in Mallorca. The cars of this time were usually large, heavy vehicles, driven by bulky engines. The plan of LORYC was to create extremely light, agile automobiles, installing only a small, but more economical engine. By the end of 1920 the first LORYC was seen on the streets of Mallorca. A lightweight car with two seats, equipped with 15 horsepowers.
A racing car in the form of a speedster with a tapering tail was also developed at LORYC in the same year. Even back then, taking part in auto racing was an important marketing tool for automakers. Due to their light weight and their particular reliability in motor racing, the cars of LORYC achieved an excellent reputation quickly. In the "Vuelta a Catalunya" a LORYC took first place, and also was succesful at the legendary race of Tarragona. A LORYC Speedster won the third place there, and drove the fastest lap in his class.
The strategy of LORYC was to use only components of exceptional quality for the construction of their vehicles, and to add those together with special care by hand. Although this came at a cost, they were quickly appreciated for their legendary steadiness. The strategy worked, and the demand for the vehicles rose. 1922 LORYC presented its vehicles on the "Car-Salon Barcelona" to an international audience. The success was enormous, and already in 1923 it became necessary to move to larger manufacturing facilities. When the major automobile companies such as Citroen and Ford introduced the assembly line production, difficulties started to occur at LORYC. The demand for the handmade vessels sank, until they finally had to stop the production.
Only fiew LORYC have been preserved until now. In 2013 the german entrepreneur Charly Bosch, who lives on Mallorca, was able to purchase one of these classic cars. He was so fascinated by the automobile, that he bought the trademark "LORYC" and decided to start crafting vehicles again along the lines of his LORYC, and provide them with a modern electric machine.
