Messerschmitt, temporarily not allowed to manufacture aircraft, had turned its resources to producing other commodities. In 1952, Fend approached Messerschmitt with the idea of manufacturing small motor vehicles. These were based on his Fend Flitzer invalid carriage.
The KR200 replaced the KR175 in 1955. While using the same basic frame as the KR175 with changes to the bodywork (notably including wheel cutouts in the front fenders) and an improved canopy design, the KR200 was otherwise an almost total redesign. The rear suspension and engine mounting were reworked, and hydraulic shock absorbers were installed at all three wheels. Production of the KR200 was heavily reduced in 1962 and ceased in 1964
This beautifully restored Messerschmitt KR 200 has spent nearly all of its life
in Germany and comes with its original papers. This lovely example is correctly finished in red and silver livery with a matching interior. This sought after micro car is surely a delightful addition to any enthusiasts collection. Practical fun!
