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.
