Founded by cabinet maker Jacques Saoutchik (born Iakov Savtchuk in Ukraine in 1880), Saoutchik was a top-class French coachbuilding company founded in 1906. In the 1930s the company became famous for their high quality and often extravagant designs. In 1952 Saoutchik's son Pierre took over the company. It was not long before fate brought an end to the company. With the great French luxury car manufacturers all going out of business, the market for the ostentatious Saoutchik designs evaporated and the company ceased trading in 1955. They styled flamboyant and expensive automobile bodies for classic brands such as Bugatti, Delahaye, Pegaso and others.
We'll tell the story of this company on the occasion of its anniversary.
