The Horch 13/35 PS was a race car that was built between 1912 and 1913.

August Horch quickly recognised the importance of motor sports for promoting sales. The victorious participation in the Berlin-Leipzig-Berlin long-distance race in 1904 and in the Herkomer Race in 1906 marked the start of his involvement in motor sports, an involvement that the Horch factory continued even after its founding father left the company.

In spring 1913, race champion Albert Hirrlinger successfully participated in the famous Swedish Ice Race in a Horch 13/35 hp. The 13/35 PS was fitted with a four-cylinder in-line engine that had a capacity of 3,175cc. The engine produced 35hp at 1,600rpm. The cars had a top speed of 90 km/h and had a fuel economy of 15 litres per 100 km.

168 cars were produced each being sold for 10,300 marks for the chassis.
