Achtung!


This little 3-wheeled beauty definitely got my attention today at Folklife Village. It's a 1956 Messerschmitt KR200 and you can find out more about it here. The passenger rides behind the driver like a trainer aircraft and the cockpit and controls are more like a plane than a car too. You just don't see one of these every day, that's for sure.

I've never ever heard of one of these, but it sure looks good and it would be fun to have as a toy...

Nice photo!

We attended a microcar show a few years back where we saw this model and other fantastic tiny autos. A few amateur photos at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/truekkris/page11/
