Estimate:
€20,000 - €25,000


Lovely cream-and-black colour scheme
Five-passenger tourer

Originally an American armaments firm, Hotchkiss moved to France in the late 19th century. Automobile manufacture began in 1903, and by 1919 they were building several ranges of cars. From 1923, Hotchkiss settled on a single model, the 2,413 cc Series AM, which was produced for a full decade.

This Hotchkiss AM model five-passenger tourer has previously undergone a full restoration, though not to concours standards. It presents well in cream body over black wings. The upholstery is done in black pleated leather. The hood is black canvas and appears to have been recovered as part of the restoration.

The crossed cannon barrels on the car’s badge bespeak its heritage, but it’s the Bugatti flavour of the horseshoe Moreux radiator that makes it truly endearing.



Encantadora combinação de creme sobre preto

Torpedo de cinco lugares

A Hotchkiss começou por ser uma empresa de armamento americana, mudando-se para França no final do século XIX. A produção de automóveis teve início em 1903 e, em 1919, já fabricava várias gamas diferentes. A partir de 1923, a Hotchkiss concentrou-se num só modelo, o Série AM, com motor de 2413 cc, que seria produzido ao longo de uma década.

Este Hotchkiss AM com carroçaria torpedo de cinco lugares recebeu um restauro completo, mas não ao nível de concurso. Está bem apresentado, com carroçaria creme e guarda-lamas pretos. O interior está forrado a couro plissado, também preto. A capota é em lona preta e parece ter sido recuperada no processo de restauro.

Os canhões cruzados no emblema do Hotchkiss revelam as suas origens, mas é o toque Bugatti do radiador Moreux, em forma de ferradura, que o torna realmente cativante.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/pg19.
