Great Investment — love this car, it is classy, unique. built with refined elegance. the performance is great for a car built in 1971. if cost of ownership is an issue forget about it. a pure joy to drive. ascetically speaking this car combines organic curves seamlessly.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: pure joy, sounds great and is beautiful

Cons: money

70's Autobahn Cruiser — Wonderful car for it's age! 4 WHEEL Power DISC brakes! power steering! 4 Wheel independent suspension with rear wheel drive! Intermittent wipers, child locks, heated rear window, 4 speed auto transmission, electronic fuel injection...fog lights...Also this is the first car ever to have 3 point seatbelts! It even had front & rear crumple zones for crashes! Way ahead of it's time, a great example of german engineering and pioneering. This car is very high speed stable granted you find one who's suspension isn't old and worn out. This car was made to do 120mph all day back in 1971 and still be able to do an emergency lane change at that speed with very little body roll. They suck gas but the acceleration if you get the one with EFI is half way decent, especially for such a heavy car.

Pros: Modern Safety & handling technologies, gorgeous!

Cons: Gas guzzler, hard to find parts

Great All-rounder By Syed

Well built and fun to drive, though feels a little under-powered at times which in-turn might be because of unusually tall gear ratios....I would say its a great car, only let down by reliability issu... Read More

A German Panzer Tank... By Chris

Bloody huge, but 7 seats and enough space to move a small army makes it hugely practical, plus it was quite quick considering its size! Nice interior and despite 220,000 on the clock it just didnt wan... Read More
