The Kellner Coachbuilding Company, founded by George Kellner, began creating custom bodies for carriages in 1861.

Georges Kellner Jr. is credited as being the creator of the ‘torpedo’ body style.

Kellner coachwork graced only the most prestigious chassis: Bentley, Bugatti (including the Type 41 Royale), Hispano-Suiza and, of course, Rolls-Royce. Unlike many coachbuilders, Kellner survived the Great Depression.
