Debuting in 1937, the Steyr 220 was a product of the Stey-Daimler-Puch company of Austria and considered an extremely advanced design for the times. Offered in four body styles-a four door five passenger limousine, a four door five passenger Kabbriolett and a pair of two door Kabbriolett models with bodies from Glaser Coachworks in Dresden, Germany-the Steyr 220 was the last pre-war model offered by the company. The midsized vehicle was powered by a 2.3L six-cylinder engine backed by a four-speed manual transmission. Featuring a lightweight rigid chassis and four-wheel independent suspension, the Steyr 220 would have been considered a performance car of the time capable of a top speed of 75 MPH (120 KPH). A total of 5,900 Steyr 220's were manufactured over the four-year production run that ended in 1941 with the start of World War II, with no specific breakdown by body style. During that war, the Steyr 220 was a very popular vehicle among the top Nazi commanders and officers and one provided the transportation for one of the very few successful escapes from the famed German prison camp Auschwitz.
