The car pictured here was the 1934 Berlin show car. To underline Maybach's ties to the aeronautical industry, Karl Maybach commissioned a number of aerodynamic cars. This DS8 Zeppelin picks up some aero flourishes, like the speed-lines on the fenders behind the wheels. Unfortunately, at the time - unlike today - these cars failed to impress at the auto shows. The Maybach company kept this car for many years.
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.
