By 1938 the top model produced by the Horch Company was the Horch 853A. It was a more powerful version of the 853 fitted with a 120 bhp version of the 5-litre Horch straight eight. Many bodies on the shorter 853 A chassis were highly regarded, and the sporty cabriolets were among the most beautifully styled cars of their era. Over 350 cars were built between 1938 and 1939 and although expensive, they were cheaper than their Mercedes-Benz rival the 540K.

This car was bought in Munich by a US airman in 1951 and shipped to the US. Sadly he died before he was able to enjoy the car and it was sold for the price of $10! Since then it has been fully restored and shown at many events including the Audi 80th anniversary.
