Austro Daimler Bergmeister ADR 60 Brings Its AMG GT…Err…1930s Inspired Looks To Salon Prive

The ADR 630 Shooting Grand is the spiritual heir to the six-cylinder Austro Daimler Bergmeister of the early 1930s. However, this modern version features plug-in hybrid technology and an electric range of 250 km (150 miles).

It’s also one of the most spectacular vehicles to attend this year’s Salon Privé event, boasting a 1,198 PS (1,182 HP) powertrain that also produces 1,600 Nm (1,180 lb-ft) of torque. As a result, in a straight line, it will hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.5 seconds and max out at 330 km/h (205 mph).

Making all of this possible is a Mercedes-AMG GT along with its in-line six unit, working in tandem with three high-performance electric motors and a 55 kW lithium-ion battery.

“When we were developing the vehicle, our overriding concern was to capture the spirit of the original Bergmeister and to translate this into the future, just as if the brand never ceased to exist. Considering the ethos and values of the brand and acknowledging its position as a true automotive innovator, led us to design the Shooting Grand with what we like to describe as innovation by tradition,” said project manager Roland Stagl.

The ADR 630 Shooting Grand definitely looks like it woke up in the wrong century, albeit in a good way. Its double-bubble roof and rising rear roofline take us back to cars of the 1930s, while the headlights, wrap-around rear light panels and the lavish interior, are all inspired by the art deco style from that period.

In terms of size, this is definitely not a small car. It measures 4,544 mm (178.9 inches) in length, is 2,087 mm (82.1 inches) wide, stands 1,331 mm (52.4 inches) tall and has a 2,637 mm (103.8 inch) wheelbase. At 1,650 kg (3,637 lbs), it’s no featherweight, but it’s not too heavy either.

“We are delighted to welcome Roland and his team to Salon Privé and thrilled that they have chosen Salon Privé to launch their fabulous new PHEV to the UK market,” said Salon Privé co-founder David Bagley.

“Having first seen the ADR 630 Shooting Grand earlier this year at Villa d’este, I knew it was a car we had to have at Salon Privé. The history of the brand and passion of the team behind its design is compelling as are the sheer technological advancements that have been achieved – I am sure there will be a lot of interest and activity around the new car when it gets its UK public unveiling at the event on Thursday 5th September.”
