Saoutchik Hispano-Suiza H6C Dubonnet Xenia Streamliner 1938
Saoutchik Hispano-Suiza H6C Dubonnet Xenia Streamliner 1938
8.4/10 rating (7 votes)

Description

This one-off Hispano-Suiza was commissioned by Andre Dubonnet in 1937 to showcase his company's latest suspension development. Andre Dubonnet was an accomplished aviator and racing driver. The Dubonnet family had amassed a fortune from the aperitifs and cognacs that continue to bear the family name.

The streamlined, aircraft inspired styling was done by aerodynamics expert Jean Andreau and Saoutchik crafted the body on a modified Hispano-Suiza H6B chassis. The car is equipped with unusual parallel-opening doors.

TESTIMONIALS

I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them. Congratulations on an excellent website.
