NSU presented the NSU 1200 C with 55 hp, a 1.2 l 4-cylinder engine and a large passenger and luggage compartment. The car was not just a new model – it also represented a jump from a compact car to a "real" car in the lower middle class. With this model series, NSU offered Prinz 4 and Prinz 1000 drivers looking for an alternative a real option to remain loyal to the brand. The "C" comfort version had a generous range of special equipment.
