    Which automobile manufacturer was the first to sell a production racing car?

    Not just made a car and raced it. I mean offered a special racing car model to the public as a production item?

    This is a good answer. Bugatti started in 1909.

    So far the earliest i can find is the 1900 Locomobile Locoracer also known as the Style 4.
