A Brief History of the Marque
Manufacturer: Franz & Anton Rumpler of Wiener Neustadt
The firm which produced the Alfa-Gnom also made the FAR, the name of which is derived from the company's initials.
One of the founders, Franz Rumpler, suffered fatal injuries in during a motorcycle race in 1927. His brother Anton Rumpler ceased production of the FAR the same year (some sources say 1928).
Their engines were supplied to other manufacturers such as Vylea, in the same city.
