The W25K was the product of four German automobile companies – Audi, DKW, Horch, and Wanderer – who merged in 1932 to form Auto Union. The four interlocking rings of Auto Union’s badge are seen on modern Audis to this day. Built in Germany, the W25K was Dr. Ferdinand Porsche’s first project after he graduated from engineering school in 1930. Porsche was a consultant to several German carmakers, and he worked with the Wanderer automotive company on the design and manufacture of the W25K’s supercharged engine.

This Wanderer is one of only a few cars in the Mullin Collection that is not of French heritage. While little is known of its early history, the W25K was purchased by Fritz Schlumpf in 1964. A part of the Schlumpf Reserve Collection, the Wanderer remained unrestored in static storage in Malmerspach, France, until the Mullin Collection acquired the entire collection, including this W25K, in 2008. The Mullin Collection kept approximately half of the Schlumpf Reserve Collection to display in the Mullin Automotive Museum, only exhibiting cars of particular historical significance. The Wanderer is one of these cars.

*Please note that all of the Lots in this Auction have been in long-term static storage at the Mullin Automotive Museum and may not be currently operational. They will require mechanical attention and in some cases significant restoration prior to any road use.
