Saoutchik Mercedes Benz 680S Torpedo
Saoutchik Mercedes Benz 680S Torpedo
7.6/10 rating (5 votes)
No video selected.


Soon after the merger of Mercedes and Benz, the two started developing the world's fastest sports cars and the Saoutchik Torpedo roadster is one of them. The S-Type chassis and drivetrain were designed by Ferdinand Porsche in 1927.

The Saoutchik-design took advantage of the Type 680's low slung chassis and had no running boards. The low windshield, decent chrome accents and a completely disappearing top emphasized the sporting character of the chassis.

I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them. Congratulations on an excellent website.
