This 'beautiful' four door open top vehicle is the 1969 Sachsenring P240 Reprasentant it was built by the Sachsenring factory which was also responsible for the Trabant East Germany. The car was not sold to the public it was used primarily for military parades and to cart the Communist leaders around in style. The car was pretty much a normal P-240 which didn't look half as impressive. It was powered by a Horch 6 cylinder engine which was a pre war design pumping out a throbbing 80 hp from the 2407 cc engine. Other favorites for the Communist leaders included the Czech Tatra, the Russian Zil and Gaz but none were anywhere as striking as this handsome vehicle which was seen at the Trabant museum in Zwickau, Germany.
