1937 Horch 853A Voll & Ruhrbeck Sport Cabriolet

This 853 model was especially popular among Germany’s rich and famous, it offered ‘Mercedes-Benz luxury’ at a very competitive price. It’s an interesting car as it’s the history of August Horch who  after working with Benz, in 1899 started producing cars under his own name.  After ten years due to a dispute he left the company he began, to form Audi (the latin translation of his surname).  In 1932, financial problems forced August to sell Audi, which joined the Horch company, DKW (Das Kleine Wunder), and Wanderer as Auto Union (built cars as gorgeous as Streamliner).
