Vehicle highlights at the trade fair – a selection

Stars on two and four wheels, but curiosities as well: many will once again be on show at MOTORWORLD Classics Berlin 2016. Here is a small selection as a preview:

GM Futurliner, 1939

Futurliner-9Twelve Futurliners were built by the Yellow Truck and Coach Company in Pontiac, Michigan, between 1939 and 1941. The designs originated from General Motors design boss Harley Earl. As part of the Parade of Progress, the futuristic buses were intended to demonstrate new technologies, such as microwave ovens and televisions, to the U.S. population. Number 9 will be on display at MOTORWORLD Classics Berlin – this Futurliner was used as a reception vehicle during the parade. The only roadworthy one of its kind in Europe, its interior is fitted out with a true-to-style Art Deco bar.

“David Bowie MINI”, 1998

MOTORWORLD-Classics B_BMW-Group Classic_Bild 1_PM 8_2016-09-27In 1999, the Mini celebrated its 40th birthday. To mark this occasion, in 1998 the company invited various artists to create their own “Designer Mini”. David Bowie’s work of art – even the windows are chrome-plated and therefore opaque (from the outside) – is certainly the most spectacular of the artistic series. The world-famous, iconic pop artist’s intention was for the entire world to be reflected in it, and that the vehicle should henceforth not be viewed independently of its environment.

Slaby-Beringer, 1924

MOTORWORLD Classics B_PK Fahrzeug-Highlights_PM 9_Bild 3_2016-10-06Between 1919 and 1924, Slaby-Beringer (named after the company’s two founders) in the Charlottenburg district of Berlin initially produced electric vehicles with great success, before later switching predominantly to vehicles with petrol-driven engines. This 1924 Slaby-Beringer is fitted with a DKW engine, and was one of the last vehicles to be produced by the company before it went bankrupt.

Hanomag “Autobahn”, 1938-41

MOTORWORLD Classics B_PK Fahrzeug-Highlights_PM 9_Bild 5_2016-10-06This Hanomag “Autobahn” with a 1.3 litre engine came onto the market in 1939. Its capability for maintaining a speed of 100 km/h made it suitable for driving on motorways. The self-supporting, full steel body with its streamlined shape gave the vehicle a similar appearance to the VW Beetle. It was built by the Berlin-based bodymaker Ambi-Budd.

Amphicar, 1960-63

MOTORWORLD Classics B_Amphicar_PM 5_Bild 4_2016-09-01The Amphicar fits right into the MOTORWORLD Classics Berlin concept in two ways: Not only is it a rarity from the good old days, but it is also originally from Berlin. The vehicle was developed by the designer Hans Trippel, who had it mainly built in the Wittenau district of Berlin at the Deutsche Waggon – und Maschinenfabrik from 1960 to 1963. It was the first amphibious car manufactured in series production for civilian use.

Chevrolet Fleetline Deluxe, 1949

MOTORWORLD Classics B_PK Fahrzeug-Highlights_PM 9_Bild 8_2016-10-06This Chevrolet is a star on wheels – in the truest sense of the word. Most recently, it was used during the filming of a Hollywood movie, “Bridge of Spies” from 20th Century Fox, with Tom Hanks in the lead role.
And it’s not the only “movie star” that can be seen at MOTORWORLD Classics Berlin…

Sauber-Mercedes C 291, 1991

MOTORWORLD Classics B_PK Fahrzeug-Highlights_PM 9_Bild 12_2016-10-061991 was a transitional year for the World Sportscar Championship. Although the regulations for Group C category racing cars did actually stipulate 3.5 litre naturally aspirated engines, turbocharged cars from the previous year were also allowed to compete for the world championship. Sauber-Mercedes set their hopes on both technologies with the C11 and the new C291. However, the host of innovative technical solutions built into the C291 demanded their tribute, and thwarted both Michael Schumacher and Karl Wendlinger in their quests for the 1991 World Championship.

Benetton-Ford B194-5, 1994

MOTORWORLD Classics B_PK Fahrzeug-Highlights_PM 9_Bild 13_2016-10-06In 1994, Michael Schumacher wrote Formula 1 history in this Benetton-Ford after a truly nail-biting season, winning the first of his seven world championship titles in, unbelievably, just twelve ranked Grand Prix races. His racing car of that time therefore holds special importance.
