Rotary engines are magnificent things. Madza wasn’t the only automobile manufacturer that saw potential in Felix Wankel’s high-revving rotary engine design. West German firm NSU put this amazing beast on the road from 1967 to 1977.
Forward tilt hood reveals the rotary amazing-ness.
Amazing aero profile. <3
This particular cast has a wonderful feature. The base is practically seamless with the top half of the cast. They join precisely at the lower molding/door line and it looks terrific!
NSU was acquired by Volkswagen group in 1969 and merged into Auto Union to create the modern day Audi as we know it today.
