Horch 830BK

The Horch 830 is a luxury car with an eight-cylinder V engine and rear-wheel drive, which the Horch brand, which belongs to Auto Union, presented at the 23rd International Motor Show (IAMA) in Berlin in February 1933 as the successor to the 430 (Horch 8). The first vehicles were delivered in autumn 1933.

A total of 11,625 Horch 830/930 civilian passenger cars were built at the Zwickau Horch factory until it was discontinued in the spring of 1940 due to the war. In addition, between 1934 and 1937 the Reichswehr and Wehrmacht received 4,536 Horch 830 R Kübelwagen, which, unlike the civilian types, had rigid axles at the front and rear for off-road use.

As early as 1934, the improved Horch 830 B with a larger 3.25 liter engine with an unchanged output of 70 hp, hydraulically operated drum brakes (“oil pressure brakes”) and the front independent wheel suspension on double wishbones also appeared in the four-door sedan and the two-door cabriolet. The versions with a streamlined rear were eliminated.

The following year the engine was enlarged again to 3.5 liters and the now 75 hp (55 kW) model was called the Horch 830 BK (k = short) to distinguish it from the Horch 830 BL (L = long) with 15, which was also available cm longer wheelbase (3.35 m) and a rear “double-jointed axle” (De Dion axle) instead of the simple rigid axle. This chassis was used for the Pullman sedan, Pullman convertible and 4-door convertible.
