Coachwork: Erdmann & Rossi
Chassis #: 854237A
This is one of three surviving examples of the first series of the stylish Horch 853. In early 1935, the Horch Company began to construct a luxurious sporting car along the lines of the special roadsters being offered by Mercedes-Benz in the 1930s. Construction was undertaken on the first chassis by the Horch factory coachworks in Meerane, Germany. Two new chassis were fitted with the factory's straight-8 engine, and this particular example was sent to Erdmann & Rossi to be bodied. This car was completed in 1939 and spent most of its life in Europe. It was acquired by its current owner in 2013.
