With the launch of the Ewald Praxl-designed Prinz in 1957, NSU had re-established itself as a car manufacturer in its own right after a break of 28 years. Only a few years later, the German firm would stun the motoring world when it introduced the first rotary-engined production car: the Wankel Spider. Launched in 1963, the Spider was the first motoring application of Dr Wankel's rotary 'piston' concept, which used a rotor with three convex sides rotating eccentrically in a figure-of-eight-shaped chamber. Its first application was as a compressor or supercharger, the first actual engine being tested in 1957. This new power unit went into a roadster version of the Bertone-styled Sport-Prinz. Sadly, Wankel's concept was ahead of the available technology, and the engine was bedevilled by rotor tip sealing problems. Subsequent developments by Mazda would see these largely overcome, and the latest tip-seal technology has been incorporated into this car's engine. Modern improvements mean that rotary engines are now regularly running for 100,000 miles. In three years of production, NSU sold somewhere between 2,000 and 2,500 Wankel Spiders, and survivors are relatively rare today.;;This stunning rare example was supplied new in the UK in 1965 and this actual car was featured in Motor Magazine dated 22nd May, 1965. This article includes photos with the car wearing the same reg number as today, a road test and report.

Fiat Abarth 850 TC Nurburgring Specification 1963. This stunning little car started life as a 600d with the obligatory suicide doors and later in its life being in incredible corrosion free condition was professionally rebuilt to replicate an Abarth 850 TC using many correct and difficult to find original Abarth parts including cylinder block, exhaust, large split sump, twin choke carburettor and large dynamo pulley. The engine was rebuilt to 850 TC Nurburgring Specification by marque specialists Carallo in Turin. The watercooled engine is cooled by a radiator to the front. The braking system has front disc brakes and the suspension has Abarth specification springs and dampers, Campagnolo 5 1/2 inch magnesium wheels are fitted. The interior is beautifully finished in red and white leather, with Abarth instruments and Nardi steering wheel with Abarth horn push. The car has all the correct Abarth badging and the iconic propped open engine lid. It would be very difficult to find a 1963 Fiat in this condition and hugely expensive to build to this specification. Great fun to drive Incredible Condition
