DKW 3=6 Sonderklasse F 91 saloon special, 1955
The DKW 3=6 Sonderklasse was first presented at the Frankfurt Motorshow in March 1953. The model designation 3=6 refers to the three-cylinder two-stroke engine used for the first time, which was said to have the power and refinement of a six-cylinder four-stroke engine. Developed before the war, the market launch scheduled for 1940 was prevented by the outbreak of war. But even 13 years later the DKW 3=6 was to become a great success. Produced until September 1955 the DKW 3=6 was also very successful in rallying, winning the European Rally-Championship in 1954.
