Our car really needs to be seen to be appreciated, it is quite simply stunning in every respect. The odometer reading certainly is commensurate with the condition of the interior though cannot be warranted. The quality of the woodwork and metal fittings is staggering and certainly equal if not superior to anything else available at the time. The car has been part of a private collection and been used regularly. On the road the 2996cc six-cylinder engine with triple Solex carburettors is extremely responsive and belies its age and the column gearchange is light and precise.

If you are looking for something a little different, that will cover big mileage and is the epitome of the finest of German engineering then this is for you.
