The tiny roadster, weighting 900kg, had an acceleration of 9 seconds to 100km and a top speed of around 200km/h.

So no difficult folding mechanisms which take most of the space in the trunk.

The first car I chose to be 3D printed in the scale 1:43 was the NSU RO80 by Pininfarina from 1971. Very distinctive car for it's time - a four seats sedan with a Wankel engine and a roof that could be folded down on the trunk:
