Convertible Coupe
Coachwork: Hermann Spohn
Designer: Brooks Stevens
Sold for Confidential Amount at 2017 The Auburn Auction : Worldwide Auctioneers.
There are only two Valkyries known to exist - but some claim there may be an additional one or two. The Die Valkyrie was featured at the 1955 and 1956 auto shows in Europe and was also shown at Madison Square Garden's Auto Show. The front bumper on this car was made to look like a big 'V' to represent the American V8 engines. Brooks Stevens raced cars in both Europe and America and was very proud of the American V8 engines and used the front bumper to symbolize it. Most consider the Valkyrie the finest bodywork and execution done by Spohn. Interestingly, in this case, Spohn did not use any of his own styling cues, like those he typically used from the 1951 Buick Skylark by Harley Earl, but were strictly the design of Brooks Stevens with a Spohn execution. The seats are extremely plush and are possibly made from some of the pieces of a Mercedes-Benz 300 seat of the time period. It is also interesting to note while the top looks like a fixed top it is actually a lift-of very much like a 1955 Thunderbird.
