"Not a scratch, doctor. Not a scratch."
Red Skull to Arnim Zola[src]

Johann Schmidt's Coupe was a car owned by the SS general Johann Schmidt, the infamous Red Skull.


Schmidt drove the car during his invasion of Tønsberg, Norway in March 1942. In November 1943, he let Arnim Zola use it to escape the burning HYDRA Weapons Facility in Austria when Captain America invaded, requesting only that Zola when driving it not leave the car with a scratch. Zola returned the car back to the Red Skull once they regrouped.

During the next two years, the Red Skull continued to use the car to travel to other HYDRA facilities. Often, he would arrive to find the locations destroyed due to the actions of Captain America and the Howling Commandos.[1]

In May 1945, the car was appropriated by Chester Phillips when Schmidt took off in his plane.[1]
