1956 Messerschmitt KR200

| 0
This comes from my favorite trading company, Gullwing Motor Cars out of New York.  As they say “Red with black. Excellent original and absolutely rust free car. Very rare and collectible. Excellent condition.”

I have read recently that these small cars are not in vogue on the collector circuit unless rare and unique.  This qualifies… no? 
In 1955, in order to prove the KR200’s durability, Messerschmitt prepared a KR200 to break the 24-hour speed record for three-wheeled vehicles under 250 cc (15.3 cu in). The record car had a special single-seat low-drag body and a highly modified engine, but the suspension, steering, and braking components were stock. Throttle, brake, and clutch cables were duplicated. The record car was run at the Hockenheimring for 24 hours and broke 22 international speed records in its class, including the 24-hour speed record, which it set at 103 km/h (64 mph). – Wikipedia.

This one is listed on Hemmings for $26,500.
