- More powerful Paris-Nice version
- Beautiful convertible coachwork
- No reserve
Despite its image of seriousness, the Hotchkiss brand was no stranger to motorsports. Hotchkiss distinguished itself several times at the Monte Carlo Rally, but first won the Critérium Paris-Nice in December 1928, with five ex-æquo cars, covering the hillclimb of la Turbie at an average speed of 71.6 km/h.
This is why the brand named its new model "Paris-Nice" in 1935, with the six-cylinder 3.5-liter's power rising to 120bhp, as on the Grand Sport model. It is this model that we are offering, in a rare cabriolet coachwork called Biarritz. The car seems complete and the dashboard includes all instruments, including a water thermometer located on the steering column. The midnight blue upholstery is damaged but partially recoverable, and the hood system is complete too. The windshield folds down and under the hood, it does not seem to lack any accessories, with the big six-cylinder in-line engine, the air filter was put on the side. On the trunk appears a small sticker "Auto Hall", a dealer selling used Hotchkisses. With its beautiful coachwork, this car is sure to attract the attention of enthusiasts.
