NSU Ro80 at German Autofest

The NSU Ro80 is an iconic car. The first commercially available rotary engined car made, well before Mazda, it was sadly not a sales success. It is powered by a 995cc rotary engine driving the front wheels. The Wankel design was not robust enough for everyday driving and mechanical failures blighted the cars reputation. This was the last design built by NSU from 1967 to 1977.
