24/5/2012. Haynes Motor Museum Sparkford Somerset.
YMW 779 1961 Messerschmitt KR200.
You can see the plane influence readily in this but the myth that they were made from surplus ME109 cockpits is just that - a myth, sadly I think!!
Designed by Fritz Fend who was an aeronautical engineer and who did serve in the Luftwaffe during WW2.
Prouced between 1954 and 1964 they would do a little over 60mph.
There is a four wheel Tiger version that is very rare indeed.
