In the period 1941 – 1943, ŠKODA Works produced a personal car of the middle class, which was derived from the personal car ŠKODA SUPERB. As a commander car, it was designated ŠKODA SUPERB TYPE 952 CABRIO, or Kommandeur – Cabriolet Kfz. 21 by Germans. Combination of the rounded body of the personal car with upholstered folding top and bulky military-style chassis appealed very impressively.
The car had four-stroke, 6-cylinder petrol engine with total cylinder volume of 3140 cm2, which gave engine power of the 80 HP. Gear allowed 4 speed stages forwards and one reverse.
All produced cars were taken over by German SS – units. Because of their unprecedented luxury, which they could offer, they were directed to the high-ranking officers.
Total number of produced car was 1626, most of them as a Kfz. 15 variant. Thirty cars were completed as a closed ambulance cars, and 100 cars as a convertible car Kfz. 21 Cabrio.
There are two examples of the Škoda Superb Type 952 Cabrio persisted in Czech republic, both of them, unfortunately, in rather poor condition.
