Cars from 1920 to 1950 - The golden age of the car

Mercedes Type 28/95

Code 1504
Body style: torpedo

The work of Ferdinand Porsche, Technical Director of Daimler-Mercedes from 1923 to 1929, was behind a wonderful range of cars with large chassis, spacious bodies and very respectful levels of performance, powered by powerful but manageable engines.

This splendid torpedo is a perfect illustration of Porsche’s theories and boasts a six-cylinder, 7200 cc engine that generated 90 horsepower.  Despite being a heavyweight (nearly 2,300 kg), speeds of 120 kph (75 mph) could be reached, but with excellent control, thanks to the perfect steering and braking systems.

The car on display had all its original accessories when it joined the collection in 1963.
