Originally, the Austro Daimler AD 6/17 was built as a test car in 1923 together with the Austrian Airplane Company (ÖFFAG).
The ÖFFAG produced the characteristic body structure made entirely of wood. Ferdinand Porsche took a liking to it and used the extraordinary vehicle for many years as a private car, especially for hunting trips with his family and beloved dog. But the « hunting car” had not yet arrived at the end of its journey. It landed in the Swedish royal family around King Gustav V, where it – quite true to its name – was used as a vehicle for hunting expeditions.
You can still see the mounts for the royal standards and the very car as well, if you visit us at the Ferdinand Porsche Erlebniswelten fahr(T)raum.
