Description

German aircraft manufacturer Messerschmitt was temporarily banned from producing aircraft following Germany’s defeat in World War II. Designer and engineer Fritz Fend looked for other commodities for the company to produce. The Messerschmitt KR200 was a three-wheeled bubble car designed by Fend and produced in the revamped factory from 1955 to 1964. The Messerschmitt KR-200 was considered an immediate success.

The Messerschmitt KR-200 had quite a following in Hollywood and with celebrities, and was featured in several films, among them was Strictly for Pleasure (1958) with Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh. But perhaps the most well-known celebrity Messerschmitt KR-200 fan was Elvis Presley.

Our vehicle is in very good usable condition and freshly serviced. It has been featured in the book “Messerschmitt Kabinenroller – Die flotten Flitzer der 50er Jahre” by Jens Kron and autographed by himself on the left side. An original issue of this book is included on the sale. She is also certified as an historic vehicle by Museu do Caramulo.
