I'm trying to identify a French-language bande dessinée that I read in the 90s (maybe early 2000s). It was printed in the classic A4 paper format, with a cardboard hardcover.
The story was set in an early steampunk/dieselpunk 20th century and was about vehicles competing in a race, of which I can remember two of them :
- A vampire car that drank the blood of its drivers (IIRC named "La Veuve noire" = "black widow"). I believe it would eventually win the race. It looked like a sleek black car with tinted windows, not unlike
- A huge crewed coal-powered behemoth that would eventually explode after being overcharged by its captain.
Other lesser and unsuccessful vehicles existed but I can't recall any of them.
