1957 Messerschmitt KR 201 Smallest Convertible Car

A small red roadster car makes this smart car look like a Hamvee. Roadster Messerschmitt KR 201 1957 is a European bubble car built by an aircraft company.

This little car is known to many people, with fuel efficiency around 87mpg and managed to break the record in its class in an endurance circuit. The driver and passenger seat configuration is configured tandem, while the engine is in the back with a single-real-wheel drive configuration.

This roadster car was produced by 40,000 in the late 50s and early 60s. The photographed car is probably one of the few remaining original cars, the car was auctioned at Bruce weiner Microcar auction in madison, Gergia.

Unlike other similar cars, the KR 201 roadster is a convertible top model with a cockpit bubble plexiglass that looks more sporty. The detail of the car looks like a cartoon but elegant. A combination of chrome and candy red color and interior color makes this little leopard seen as a luxury car.
Messerschmitt KR 201 is the popular version of the rarest Messerschmitt KR200 of the Messerschmitt bubble car that can be found. The car has been restored with a high quality. So in the auction the car is interpreted to have a price between $ 60,000-up to # 70,000. Maybe this car is the smallest convertible type car ever made in the world.
