1953 MESSERSCHMITT KR-175 Welcome to the weird world of German
bubble cars. The KR175 was the first model introduced by
Messerschmitt in 1953 for the mostly broke German motoring public.
Messerschmitt was facing a ban on airplane production after World
War II, and the KR175 (KR stands for 'Kabinenroller') was their
first attempt to produce a (micro) car. It has a 175 cc two-stroke
engine producing 9 bhp, and top speed should be 90 kph if you are
brave enough. The KR175 was produced from 1953 until the end of
1955, and was replaced by the more common KR200. These early
KR175's are very rare and sought after, as from the +/- 15000
examples ever produced only 50 are still known to survive. This one
is even rarer, as it is thought to be the only true 1953
'Unmolested Survivor' in existence. Please Note The Following
