1939 Maybach SW38 Spohn Sport Roadster
German car manufacturer Maybach existed for a relatively brief period of time (1921-1941), yet managed to build more than its share of superlative automobiles. Considered a somewhat less flashy rival to Mercedes-Benz, Maybachs still had plenty of style and performance. The 1939 Maybach SW38 Spohn Sport Roadster is one of the most beautiful Maybachs ever, with thoroughly modern technology such as an electrically welded and cruciform-braced chassis, and fully independent coil suspension. Classic cars and vehicles like this were featured at the 2008 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.
