1932 Maybach Zeppelin DS8 Convertible

1932 Maybach Zeppelin DS8 Convertible Cabriolet by Spohn.

This car was discovered in a garage deep inside rural Poland. In its heyday its owner had sought to keep up with the mode of fashion by having the rear of the car updated with a more teardrop style integrated trunk and pontoon-type fenders. Erdmann and Rossi is thought to have done the redesign. After the car was successfully smuggled out to England and then to the U.S. for the Nethercutt collection, it was restored-using factory pictures-to this original state. The original conservative black paint updated to this more attractive period-plausible scheme. When new, this car cost around $12,000.
