In the event the current inventory of the Porsche Museum isn’t enough to entice you in, Porsche is adding a new display starting December 17, 2011. Considered by automotive historians to be one of the “pinnacles” of Austrian automotive history, the 1932 Austro Daimler “Bergmeister” Sport Cabriolet can trace many of its design details directly back to Ferdinand Porsche.
The Armbruster K&K Hofwagenfabrik bodied Sports Cabriolet is one of the gems of Dr. Wolfgang Porsche’s private car collection. Driven by a 120 hp six-cylinder engine with overhead camshaft, the Bergmeister is one of the most beautiful cars of its era. Over 10,000 working hours, by Austrian classic car specialist Egon Zeilmuller, were required to complete the restoration of this rare and unique piece of Austrian history. The complete restoration was premiered on the grounds of Pebble Beach during the Concours d’Elegance where the Bergmeister won a second place in the European Classic 1925 to 1931 category.
In a little over a week, if you’re travel plans allow it, you can see it for yourself at the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart.
