Description

The first Messerschmitt car was produced in 1953, a 175cc KR175 and came to Britain in 1954. This model came without suspension, reverse gear and heater. However, in 1955 it was upgraded to the KR200 with suspension and a 191cc Sachs engine. A tuned version of this established twenty five long-distance and world endurance records. The TG500 Tiger was unveiled in 1957, a four-wheeler with a twin-cylinder 500cc engine and bigger wheels. The bodywork for these also came as a roadster, Cabrio and sport. The last Messerschmitts were produced in 1964. This is a book of contemporary road tests, new model introductions, driver's impressions, technical and specification data, technical and historical articles from the major Clubs. Models covered include:- KR175, KR200, KR201, Cruisette, TG500, FMR, Super, Sport Cabriolet.
