I was going to wait a while, but it seems more than one have taken the time to pursue the story behind this fascinating and remarkable automobile & are aware of the identity of this thing so I think it's time to reveal all. It's the 1935 Hoffman 8X..............and as indicated, it's the only one ever made. The curious thing about this car is that even though it wasn't officially commissioned by one of the big manufacturers there seems to have been enough money available to develop a on

Not a 450, 150, 200 or 300 - rarer than those, with only two original factory cars made, although some have been cobbled together later. Given that you can't measure the engine size from my photo and John is going away I will disclose that it is a 250S. This was the first car to use the new (or at least much revised) four cylinder engine planned for the forthcoming T series birdcage models. The idea was to produce a car with the straight line performance of the 300S but with the lighter and torq

I have several and will search... but here's a really unrecognizable one... 😎 because my dad had some normal cars... but HIS dad even BUILT its own !! he had a small workshop for agri gear... and put some pieces together in 1900, as recorded time ago in our local newspaper (dirty scan hereunder) ... after that (1902)  he was approached by a gentleman from Turin who easily convinced him that making cars needed organization... 😁... and capital... and that was better to sell FIATs instead of making

I think to be a Bimmer it lacks the "Hofmeister Knick" (kink) ...

By a strange coincidence I lack one of those myself!

I was originally thinking along the lines of one of the smaller Alfas but, AFAIK, those with 5-doors all have their rear door-handles merged into the door-frame/surround.

If the rain stops anytime soon I'll wander down to my local supermarket car-park and make myself suspicious-looking to the security guards...

it is my neighbours car, as I´ve been told to show 😁

pic made with Leica, which changes the look into Leica look

it was one of the first cars I remember, which were made on a smaller frame with a bigger upper part, like Merceds ClS or shooting brakes.

it was as far as I remember the only model of this manufacturer available with the full aluminium Saab/Isuzu diesel engine

...hope this helps
