The Lurquin-Coudert was a French automobile manufactured in Paris from 1907 until 1914. Produced by a maker of industrial engines, they were "voiturette-tricars"; a twin-cylinder ran in the touring class at the 1907 Château-Thierry hillclimb, and vee-twin cyclecars went into production beginning in 1910.

L and C were the initials of Lurquin and Coudert, the new name of the Leonard firm of Long Acre, London, who produced motorcycles in 1904.

The models offered were typically primitive and had 2.75hp and 3.5hp MMC, De Dion and Antoine engines, braced forks and belt drive.

The make was short lived.
