PresentationGenf 1962

Before and after the facelift in 1967 it remains a rear-engined car. However, the performance is doubled of original 29 kW (40 HP) from 1000 cm³. The radiator is now in front, what makes the body more attractive and above all the road handling improves through a more balanced axle load distribution. Previously the front was closed.

The car is under acceleration hardly recognizable. Two twin carburetors and other exhaust channels provide much more spontaneous power development. In addition the new sound, but which also includes significant wind noise. The simple suspension comes more easily with the new engine to its limits. The Override requires in the border region a knowing hand.               Top of page               Index
