Details

This Audi 100 Type 44 Bischofberger (1985) Resin Model Car is White.

It is made by Autocult and is 1:43 scale (approx. 10cm / 3.9in long).


In the beginning of the 1980s Helmut Bischofberger had the idea to furnish a passenger car with a motor home structure to create a fast and comfortable campervan.

His search of a powerful car led him into the car range of Audi, in which he saw the Audi 100 as a perfect base for his dream of a campervan. He marketed his idea under the name “family” and the addition “a new motor home concept”. The advertising slogan:

“Spaciousness and usable area like a camper combined with the advantages of a passenger car”

hit the nail right on the head. The engine and the chassis of the Audi 100 remained in its original condition during the conversion. Whereas the tin body - ongoing from the b-pillar - was totally removed. This major intervention into the vehicle architecture was initially stabilized with a tubular steel frame before the motor home structure was mounted on the chassis. The structure was made of GRP and custom-built for the company Bischofberger Motorcaravan GmbH & Co. To make the space for four persons as generous and comfortable as possible, the measurements regarding width and height of the motor home structure were maximally exhausted. Concerning the height-difficulty Bischofberger offered two solutions – a folding roof and a ridged high roof.

Bischofberger Motorcaravan GmbH & Co quit the production in 1990. The reputation, that Helmut Bischofsberger responsibly built the fastest German motor home of its day lasts to the present.
