Borgward 2400




This certainly unusual automobile amazed at occasional test drive the people in the Bremen area. Dr. Borgward and his designers created a kind of "dream car". The car has a water-cooled 2 ½ litre boxer engine, power about 125 bhp and front wheel drive. The body is largely made of light metal, mounted on a central frame. 200 km per hour has been achieved so far. The tail fins carry top position and marker lights and provides greater driving safety at high speed with respect to the crosswind sensitivity. This "dream car" will be shown at the Frankfurt motor Show.
