Minichamps 1:43 1938 Horch 853A Cabriolet, Red/Black

From an Estate collection.

Introduced in 1937, the 853A was a short-wheel base version of the 850. It used technology from the Auto-Union racecars and sold at a very competitive rate compared to Mercedes-Benz. Appointed with a complex de Dion-type rear suspension from Auto-Union’s Grand Prix program and Vacuum-assisted hydraulic brakes, the 853 had an advanced chassis.

The chassis was also long enough and produced enough power to attract the type of customers that would purchase elaborate bodies. Horch wanted to rival Mercedes-Benz’s Spezial Roadster, so they built one of their own. After being modeled in wood, the decision was made for the factory to produce a prototype from their facilities in Malan, Germany. Their design was highlighted by a long hood, sloping tail and impossibly low front windscreen. These imposing proportions where limited to a two-seat cabin of equal embellishment.
