Opel Super 6 Streamliner 1938 Blue by Autocult

The fast Six  
Based on the Opel Super 6 model, which was first introduced in 1937, the company’s desire matured to create an aerodynamically offshoot. There is a high probability that Georg von Opel himself made this request. In the course of the rising network of highways in Germany (German Autobahn) – as with other large German manufacturers – the Rüsselsheim management thought about fast passenger cars, which could guarantee a high average speed on these roads.   Georg von Opel contacted the body shop ‘Dörr & Schreck’ in Frankfurt on the Main. At Dörr & Schreck’, the owners Jakob Dörr and Matthias Schreck deciated themselves to the design of the ideal car shape in aspects of aerodynamics and won the renowned car designer Reinhard Freiherr König von Fachsenfeld as a body designer. In 1937, he designed the aluminum bodywork based on the Opel 6 inspired by the ideas of Jaray – the signature at the sketch bore the words “Entw. einer Jaray stroml. Karosserie auf Opel-Chassis 2 Liter …” (blueprint of an Jaray‘ streamlined car body on basis of a Opel 2 liter chassis …). The striking drop shaped design was implemented twice, in a slightly differentiated design, at the Frankfurt factory in 1938. With a top speed of over 160 km/h, the aerodynamic designs met the expectations, but went not into series production.   Both cars were subsequently not only forgotten, but were most probably also scrapped. Today knowingly neither of the two streamlined cars exist anymore.
