1956 Horch Sachsenring P240
It's a very rare car made in Zwickau (DDR)

Beetween 155 and 1959 1382 of there were made, most of then as a sedan but there were also some four-door convertibles and same wagons. The vertical bars in the grille indicate this is one of the 246 pre-production cars built between january 1955 and december 1956. (There is an interesting article about these Sachsenrings in the German magazine "Oldtimer Markt", december 2001.)

On the front of the car, you see the "H" from Horch

I wonder how it ended up in West Berlin.

@Gag: it's just a visitor from East Berlin. The plate is something Russian.

I'll ask the other license-plate-freaks. It's obvioulsy something really rare.

I asked because this car is used by characters in the film (Soviet officers, IIRC). I very much doubt that the Soviet military mission in Berlin would let Paramount Pictures borrow one of its cars. :)

Hmmm. I was thinking about the Allied Military Mission, too, but the plate confuses me. But I haven't found a pic of the earliest versions. The late ones I know.


By the way: an orignal plate from the Allied Military missions, for the most license-plate-collectors it's the holy grail. Last year I've tried to catch a Soviet one at eBay. My 1200 $ weren't enough, it was sold for 2000 $.

If you can't identify the plate, it's probably a bad fake. :)

Although German wiki doesn't give exact years of the car facelifts, in case of the naming they have to be right. The early ones indeed didn't have the "Sachsenring" badges on the front wings (so same like this car) and were introduced in times when "Sachsenring" wasn't yet part of the factory name = they were named just Horchs in early days.

I didn't know that Horch still made cars after WWII!
