In March of 1932, Horch, the renowned German automaker, unveiled its illustrious 700 series models, headlined by the distinguished Type 780. Designed by the talented Fritz Fiedler, this exceptional vehicle featured a 4.9-liter inline engine with an overhead cam, delivering a remarkable 100 bhp. This power output propelled the car to a top speed of approximately 125 km/h, showcasing its impressive performance capabilities.
Throughout the production period spanning from 1932 to 1934, just over 300 of these exquisitely refined automobiles were meticulously crafted, with a mere 83 representing the later 780 B model, notable for its 30 mm wider track, setting it apart from its counterparts.
