1957 DKW 3=6 Coming soon!

In the autumn of 1955, Auto Union GmbH presented its successful model, the 3=6 Sonderklasse, with a 10 cm wider body at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt.

In September 1957, the final version of the 3=6 was launched. Most prominent distinguishing feature were the doors, which were hinged at the front for reasons of occupant protection.
