HISTORY (ORIGINAL VEHICLE)
The name Horch was synonymous with regal, sophisticated, and elegant design in automobile industry during the 1930s. With the type 853, the Zwickau-based car manufacturer probably introduced its most remarkable model to the public in 1937. A versatile sports-cabriolet with a 5-liter engine, the Horch 853 was the preferred vehicle for industrialists, actors and prominent politicians – in short, the high society.
To this day, the Horch 853 is as fascinating as ever. To do justice to the profound charm of this model, we decided to replicate it in scale 1:12 with an attractive two-tone finish in black and purple red. The bigger scale will give us more room to provide a replica of extraordinary charisma, elegance and value that stands out by its meticulous attention to detail and functionality, including a foldable roof top. Built from 0.6 mm sheet copper, the hand-crafted body of this model marks a pioneering innovation in model-building industry that we are particularly proud of.
