The 1935 Horch

In Classic Calls the Shots, although the Alburn is the star, three other cars have a role as ‘background extras’. The Horch was a prestigious German marque of the 1920s and 30s, one of the four brands that were incorporated into the Auto Union company together with Audi, DKW and Wanderer. The famous “four rings” Audi badge was a symbol of these four car marques, DKW being the most modest and affordable, while Horsch was the most powerful and sporty, not to mention the most expensive. The 853 model, with a 5-litre straight-eight engine, was introduced in 1935. Horches were extremely well built and engineered, featuring these straight-eight engines (a few were available with V-12 engines) and 4-wheel independent suspension.
