31 Dec Adler T10 2,5L Cabriolet Autobahn 1938
Till the 30ies Adler was, next to Opel, Mercedes, DKW, one of the 5 best-selling car brands in Germany. 1 out of 5 was an Adler. With this beautiful shaped T10 Autobahn Adler had a beautiful “fin de carrier” as after the war the company only manufactured type writers and bicycles.
The T 10 model was introduced to the public in February 1937 at the Berlin car show and was the sensation of the exhibition.
The car was nicknamed “Autobahn” because of the car’s air shaped body with a Cx of 0,36, which was perfect to drive the new German ‘autobahn’ at a speed of 125 km/h.
The car was available in 2 versions; Limousine and cabriolet. All build by Karmann.
Everything was new on the car (nothing taken over of former models), causing some minor problems in the beginning.
This car has been owned, before the present owner, by a former employee of Karmann, who was production manager and witnessed the making of the car. He bought this car in 1977 in Slovakia and completely restored the car in 1979. After the restoration the car has been kept in 2 museum in Germany and has been in a long time family ownership.
Recently the car has undergone mechanical service to get it driving again and has since participated in several concours d’elegance, winning some prices.
Equipped with a 6 cyl. 2,5 L engine with 50 HP and a 4 speed manual gearbox.
Only 9 of this model are still existing!!!
