1958-1967 NSU Sport Prinz Coupe specificationshttp://www.classicandperformancecar.comClassic and Performance CarClassic and Performance Car
Rare and unusual today, the Sport Prinz Coupé was a good looking marriage of Italian style and German engineering that should have done better than it did. The bodywork was styled by Scaglione and built in Italy by Bertone. Powered by the Prinz’s aircooled flat-twin the lightweight coupé was capable of 76mph, and seldom felt underpowered on the road. Its handling and roadholding were delightful, and the quick steering was a further positive. Once NSU had been taken over by Volkswagen, the Sport Prinz ceased having a future, and was quickly killed.
