Kässbohrer Setra S6: A Classic of Automotive History

The Kässbohrer Setra S6 was developed and built in the 1950s. This model, a milestone in bus construction at that time, was available from 1955 to 1963. The Setra S6 was the first bus of its kind to have a self-supporting body, which set it apart from its predecessors and earned it the name "Setra" (derived from "self-supporting"). The vehicle was designed by engineer Otto Kässbohrer and his team, whose innovations made the Setra S6 a symbol of modern bus design. The Setra S6 was the first bus of the Setra fleet, making it an important part of automotive history.

Special Technical Features of the Kässbohrer Setra S6

The Kässbohrer Setra S6 was equipped with an in-line six-cylinder gasoline engine that produced about 95 horsepower. It reached a top speed of approximately 100 km/h (62 mph), which was impressive for buses of that time. The vehicle was 6.7 meters (22 feet) long and could accommodate about 22 passengers. Key technological features included independent suspension, air suspension, and the remarkably low weight of 4.8 tons (5.3 short tons), made possible by the advanced self-supporting body. It also featured a well-thought-out interior design that contributed to a comfortable driving experience. The designers placed a high emphasis on efficiency and ride comfort, making the Setra S6 a popular model in public transportation.
