    1. Find of the Day: 1961 DKW Formula Junior Racecar



      Vintage racecars with four-ring heritage aren't terribly common. Look back prior to the modern quattro era and it gets even harder to pick up something with any sort of racing pedigree. In as much, we were surprised to find a DKW-powered formula car on Ebay and hailing from a Philadelphia suburb no less.

      Granted, this car is $33,500, which will weed out tire kickers.

      Here's a rundown on the ...
    2. Find of the Day: DKW Munga on Crack Part 2



      We knew we'd seen this DKW Munga before as soon as we spotted it on the Phoenix Craigslist. Yellow paint, jacked stance and a VW air-cooled boxer swap make the car decidedly one of a kind so there wasn't much mistaking it. We saw it (and featured it) once before in these pages HERE.

It seems Audi Tradition had acquired a very rare DKW GT Malzoni in Brazil. Peter and a team including noted photographer Stefan Warter had gone over to ...
    5. Photo Gallery: Audi Tradition Supports Donau Classic with Vintage Audi quattros and DKW GT Malzoni



      The Donau Classic event is a staple on the Audi Tradition calendar each summer and this year Audi chose to support the event with their recently purchased Brazilian DKW GT Malzoni and a range of vintage Audis. Audi AG boss Rupert Stadler piloted the DKW while board member Michael Dick tackled the event in an early Audi 80 rally car that predated the quattro era. Walter Rohrl also attended at the ...
