Mercedes S-Type Saoutchik Roadster 1929 CH.35968
Founded by cabinet maker Jacques Saoutchik. Saoutchik was a top-class French coach building company founded in 1906. In the 1930s the company became famous for their high quality and often extravagant designs. After Jacques died in 1955, the company passed into the hands of his son Pierre. With the great French luxury car manufacturers all going out of business, the market for the ostentatious Saoutchik designs evaporated and the company ceased trading in 1955. They styled flamboyant and expensive automobile bodies for classic brands such as Bugatti, Delahaye, Pegaso, and others.
