Hope they drove the wheels off it and burned it in a square in Munich !!!
Definitely a sweet car, aside from being built for a horrible Nazi.
An armoured convertible? Seems like bit of a waste of time.
Also it quite amazing that in 1941, the Germans thought that the war was going so well that they could effectively waste production on something so frivolous. Its got a very hand built look to it and so would have needed lots of skilled man hours to build.

Wtf is the point of an armoured convertible?
Not a lot of luggage space for a Göring car
101st Airborne. Wonder if these guys knew the dudes in Company E.

I don’t see any visual indications it’s actually armored. That door looks super thin to have any blastic resistance. Do you have a source? I’m a bit skeptical. The auction link makes no mention of any armor.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but an armor-reinforced CONVERTIBLE sounds like it has one major, glaring design flaw.
Ah, superior Nazi engineering, eh?
Funfact about this car: You might think because of it’s huge IL8 engine that’s it’s uber fast, but because of all the armor built into it, it’s heavy AF, and as a result slow AF. Saw one at a Museum in Austria a couple of years ago, and the curator demonstrated in the back lot, was legit.
The war was hell, but the *very end of the war*, when the fighting was done and soldiers were just waiting for orders to be sent home, seems like it was pretty awesome. Just looting Nazi riches, drinking priceless wine from the bottle, making out with strangers… It was the only part of the war my Grandpa would talk about, and he’d always do it with a smile.
This looks like a car a ‘guy who ran an airforce in the first half of the century’ would own.
It’s jarring to look at people from that era, how much smaller they are than the typical American these days.
Alll I see is millions of today dollars sitting there.
Damn son they don’t make them like that even with the technology we have now. Look at them curves dayum son ?
Next thing you know, that dude will be running an airport with a wife with three kids. He’ll live in a neighborhood with a coked up DJ and a creepo fat guy.
Here is a great article about this car, a 1937 model by the way, and its history. https://www.drive2.com/b/969620/
what a beautiful car, unfortunately it was owned by a fucking raving lunatic.
Gotta be real, the Nazis had some dope-ass vehicles.
