Perhaps did promote the troubles with the Glas Isar the starting and for this reason the acceptance. Anyway, this car is directly designed as a front engine with rear-wheel drive. He even has the correct engine. There is a famous detail, the first used toothed belt to the overhead camshaft. He is not very quiet, but especially the variants still coming stand for power up to 63 kW (85 hp).
If you look at the still relatively simple chassis and the light weight, one can imagine it as a quick racer with some problematic driving behavior. The italian designer Pietro Frua, being a friend to Hans Glas, has given the car despite the relatively small wheelbase a quite nice appearance. Still unusual simplicity in Germany in the 60s.
