Gebr Ihle built electric and gas powered cars for many amusement parks from the 1930s to the 1950s.
GEBR: IHLE (“the brothers with the name IHLE”) - there were two brothers (very respected) in a village BRUCHSAL previously and they had a company – very successful – production for racing cars, later also for BMW. The symbol of BMW (“double kidney”) was a creation from these brothers. Later the production of the racing cars was sold to BMW and the company of the brothers IHLE specialised in scooters for fairs. Today the company doesn’t exist any more and the brothers are dead. But there is still a sister in the village. She belongs to the company FRITZ HAAS – today a producer for scooters.
