What The Donald drives.

Rare color photo of the Adler Trumpf - Rennlimousine, Germany 1938 


  1. That's quite a car. Look at the Nazi Eagle/Adler on the grill.

  2. I had to look it up, what a strange car, long and skinny. From it's measly 55HP 4 cylinder flat head engine, it achieves a 93mph top speed! Front wheel drive and 4 wheel independent suspension too. The interior of these is as far from luxury as possible. Very, very crude, much like a model T inside. The body shape was developed by an aircraft engineer and then tested with "tufts" on the road. No wind tunnel development. I've been unable to find the Cd of the body, but it's obviously pretty good.
