Champion 400 H

Car
Date of appearance: 1953
Trademark: Champion
Manufacturer: Champion Automobilwerke GmbH
Made in: Germany
Quantity: 1941 pieces


This German-engineered two-seater was fitted with a 398cc two-cylinder engine and a canvas roof. Gorgeous in its simplicity, the Champion 400 was devoid of extraneous detailing; its rotating semi-circular side windows and louvered decklid were a nod to its functional aesthetic. The rounded, symmetrical body was fashioned from steel and its rear engine layout borrowed from a particular German people’s car being built at the time – the Volkswagen. Though the Champion was much smaller than the VW, the cost of manufacturing continued to escalate and German engineering know-how did little to save the ailing company.
