Just before the outbreak of World War II, Germany under Hitler created a large number of autobahns (highways). The rationale behind this move was to transport people and materials more faster, keeping in mind the rapid industrialization that was taking place all over Europe.
So automobile manufacturers from Mercedes to Horch, all began the race to make superfast cars. At Horch, three of their designers Günter Mickwausch, Georg Hufnagel and Johannes Böhm went on to create a car that would surprise the world.
The result was this Horch 930 S Stromlinien Limousine that weighed a massive 2.3 tons. Under the bonnet was a 3.9 litre V8 engine that would take the car to a top speed of 180 km/hr.
Each and every part of the car was made to perfection including the crankshafts that were hand-grinded. But what was unique about this car is the provision of a enamel coated wash basin with both hot/cold water in the front (passenger side). This was particularly helpful for long drives when one wanted to freshen-up.
The car was given the title Stromlinien (streamlined, in German) because of her aerodynamic shape. And this was possible because a former aircraft employee of Zepellin, Paul Jaray who performed a lot of wind-tunnel tests on this car.
