The brainchild of Friedrich Geiger, its unique bodywork sets it apart from its Ponton siblings.

With a Bosch 2-plunger mechanical fuel injection pump, this engine delivers 115 hp, ensuring a smooth and commanding ride. The independent front suspension with double wishbones and the low pivot point rear single-joint swing axle provide a driving experience that's both comfortable and dynamic. This paired with the car's smooth 4-speed manual transmission makes it a joy to drive.
