NSU 1976

Ro 80 (2 rotor, 497,5 cm³, 115 PS; 2869 mm)


NSU RO 80 £7,765
The twin-rotor Wankel engine has developed into a durable reliable power unit and the low-drag body is still one of the slipperiest shapes in the business, so the Ro80 continues its career, made to order for the discerning enthusiasts who appreciate its smooth, relaxed performance and fine road holding. The transmission is unusual; a torque converter with three-speed manual gearbox and automatic clutch.
