DDR Exotics

Some interesting cars we met in our trip to Ostsee.

To start with a british crazy creation - Morgan Threewheeler:

NAMI 013 Chita

A new car in the collection - the NAMI 013 Chita. It is difficult to believe that in 1953 in USSR such a avantgarde car was created. It had a lot of innovations that were far ahead of their time in USSR and in the world as well. It had a monocoque construction instead of body-on-frame, an automatic transmission, and a rear place engine. Because of this construction the car was 40cm smaller and 200kg lighter than the GAZ 12 ZIM still offering the same interior space.
