An Austrian old marque tries to return through its unique-shaped car

In addition to presenting stunning vintage cars, the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este held on the shores of Lake Como also shows a variety of concept cars and prototypes. And this year, the event marked the inaugural appearance of a very interesting concept car named Austro Daimler Bergmeister ADR 630 Shooting Grand.

This unique car was made by an Austrian company named Austro Daimler in an effort to revive a long-dead brand. Yes, Austro Daimler is an Austrian car maker that operated between 1899 and 1934 and was known as a subsidiary of the Daimler Motoren Gesellschaft (DMG) which is now famous for the Mercedes-Benz marque.

Given the connection to the Mercedes-Benz holding company, it is not surprising that Bergmeister (German word for "Hillclimb Champion") pins a gullwing door-types. Actually, the door handle was taken directly from the Mercedes SLS AMG. In addition to the gullwing doors, other design highlights include a very long hood, up to the LED headlamps and slim taillights.

Its design can be said as an awkward combination of a GT car and Shooting Brake, and the Bergmeister ADR 630 is classed as a "Shooting Grand". Besides that, the car takes its petrol engine, windshield and suspension from the Mercedes AMG GT, which rolls with a 4 liter biturbo V8 engine setup. An apparently detuned version of this engine is augmented with a monstrous 600 kilowatts (805 hp) worth of electric thrust to produce 1,200 horsepower and 1,600 Nm of torque.
Apparently, the first Bergmeister ADR 630 had been sold, and then the company intended to build a few more samples in the near future. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | AUSTRO DAIMLER | AUTOBLOG]
