Colliot was the name M. Deliry called the cars he made with his son. These voiturettes were noted for having a 4 h.p. air-cooled V-twin engine at the front driving through a conventional gearbox, with chain-drive.

A water-cooled model of the same layout was also offered, powered by a 4.5 h.p. De Dion-Bouton engine.

The only known surviving Colliot was for many years known as a 'De Dion-engined car', its correct identity not being established until 1997.
