THE HEARSE.DE PICTURE PAGE: HORCH
August Horch founded his own Motor car company in 1899. Due to differences with
management he sort of quit there in 1909 and founded another company. Due to copyright reasons,
he could not name it "Horch", so he went for the Latin translation "Audi",
and this name is still alive today.
Most Horch cars belonged to the luxury class and were equal in quality and style to cars built by Mercedes and Maybach at the time.

Chris Pamp sent me this picture of a Horch model 853. This car was built between
1936 and 1939 and feature a 5 liter inline 8-cyclinder engine.
