DKW Junior F 11, 1960

The Junior presented in 1959 was a typical DKW with front-wheel drive and threecylinder two-stroke engine. The torsion-bar front and rear suspension was a new feature. Its design satisfied the prevailing taste and used unmistakably American stylistic elements, such as the suggestion of tail fins and the “shark” radiator grille. A new plant was set up in Ingolstadt for the production of the Junior; this became Auto Union‘s number one address from 1962.
