Victorinox advertised this special model in some brochures as the luxury version of the Automobile knife.
Definitively known as the Luxury Automesser (AN: 5146ma) in German speaking countries, it is sometimes referred to as a Luxury Motorist because a smaller model described as the base model to this luxury version was listed in this this Catalog as the Motorist. The catalog entry may have been incorrect, or it could be a region specific name originating from English speaking Europe, or the name could have been changed to remove some confusion at the time.
This model also appears in several older North American brochures (without a model number) as the Cadillac.
