At first glance a rigid axle chassis and a double overhead camshaft engine do not go together. Yet, they are modified. The rigid axle comes along with leaf springs but with additional, longitudinal arms and the engine features only one downdraft carburetor. This makes the engine a little bit powerless at very low revs, but overall it has potential and there is enough force for overtaking others. Its top speed of 160 km/h is extraordinary for a middle class car of that time. The rigid axle chassis with coil springs is effective. It is neither hard nor dangerous. Quite the opposite, except for a few relocations in very wavy bends the car remains indulgent.
