Founded in Darmstadt (Frankfurt), Georg Autenrieth’s firm ‘Darmstädter Karrosseriewerke G. Autenrieht’ in it’s prime, employed more than 400 people converting cars for individual customers and making bodies for automobile firms. Whether it was BMW or Adler, there was no dearth of job work.
The Adler Diplomat was one of the most luxurious car built in those times. Launched in 1934, this new car was a replacement for the earlier made Adler Standard model. With a 3-litre engine, this car cost almost Rs. 1 crore (in today’s equivalent) and only few could afford. Cars were given to bespoke coachbuilders Paplar and Autenreith to make cars that suited their rich clients taste.
Sometime in 1938, a very rich British businessman approached Autenrieth to create something special for him. This was at a time, when car makers were experimenting with aerodynamics and so the Adler Diplomat Stromlinie Autenrieth was born. With a 2.9 litre V6 engine under the bonnet and having the best aerodynamics this car could easily go to speeds of 170 km/hr. Sadly the only car produced, met with a fatal crash after few months.
