This is my second company, but there are waaay less cars than the main company CMT.
Wagner is located in Hetvesia, where Bruno Wagner founded the company in 1949. The owner of several service garages started to grey-import CMT vehicles as the company was not officially present in Hetvesia. He managed to get CMT engines and built a car around it.
The Wagner “Autobahn” was a 2+2 seater coupe, and it featured the 83 horsepower engine from the CMT 2000S which was brand-new back then. Today we would consider it as a shitbox, but back then, the car was definitely something interessing. The engine was mounted in the rear, but as it needed heavy duty cast pistons and conrods it was everything but smooth. The slim cross ply tyres back then were a joke even if they featured a soft sports compound, and the car was prone to oversteer at any time.
The interior was a very sporty one using light materials, but put together with good workmanship. A radio was not standard equipment. As this car often crashed as it required a skilled driver, its advanced safety features copied from CMT cars were really needed.
On the road, the car needed just 10,7 seconds to 100 kph, and 175 were really fast for late 40s Hetvesia. 12,7 liter consumption were a merit of the light weight, as the car was built on a space frame and aluminium panels. This allowed for 687 kg in the 3,8 meter car. The suspension was ultra-modern with double wishbone on all four wheels - but the tires were really not capable of this machine with its heavy rear. $19.500 were a high price for a car that managed a test track time of 2:54,75 minutes, but the competition was rather small.
CMT imported it as sports car to Gasmea with little success, but in Frunia it succeeded as track premium car, as it was totally different from the CMT sports car model, the RT2000.
The Wagner Autobahn had no comfort at all, the car was terribly oversteering and the definitely advanced suspension lacked experience in the setup, and the engine was not smooth. But that car had character and became the base of “Wagner Automobile GmbH” in Hetvesia.
