1933 Rohr, rare German luxury show car
The Rohr automobile is extremely rare. Even back in the 1970s, less than a half-dozen of them had been rescued by collectors or museums. Obviously, these, like many fine European cars, were annihilated in the ravages of World War II — lost in bombings, fires or scrapped for the value of their steel.
The manufacturer built this one-of-a-kind classic for a 1933 German automobile show: a radically streamlined fastback four-door pillarless hardtop (22 years before this style was revived in the U.S.). Its sloping grille was different from the production line. It had been preserved by an admiring owner, and was purchased years ago by Edgar E. Rohr
