50's East German car challenge


#1

Most communist countries have low resources because their high spent on military stuff. So, you, as a engineer, have to design and build a commie car that is affordable and mechanically simple, but at the same time a bit fast, fuel efficient, comfortable for a typical german family and good to drive.

Rules:
Car PU limit: 42.0 MAX
Car ET limit: 22.0 MAX

Engine PU limit: 13.0 MAX
Engine ET limit: 40.2 MAX
Fuel type: Low quality ONLY.

Judging: Category points( Drivability, Sportiness, Comfort, Prestige, Safety, Practicality, Offroad, Fuel Economy and Reability).
I will upload the result on my YT channel: [https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC30o2YfwbnqD2WCpVJFBhJQ]
Deadline: 14 December.
Send you car to my Discord server: https://discord.gg/PTRYdMR

After watching the video, it was obvious why most East German cars were miles off the pace compared to most Western European equivalents: there was hardly any sense of quality control back then!
