NSU 1000Classic Car
The NSU 1000 was a larger, more civilised version of the Prinz 4. Powered by a new 1-litre four-cylinder aircooled engine, the 1000 failed to make a sales impact, probably because it too closely resembled the cheaper car it was based upon. The main differences between the Prinz 4 and the 1000 were its longer wheelbase, restyled front end and plastic cooling fins – and just like its smaller brother, it was a great little car to drive. The 1000 survived the Volkswagen takeover, making it to 1973, but its replacement – the Audi 50 – shared no parts with it.
