Further Info:

Introduced at the 1961 Frankfurt Motor Show, the NSU Prinz 4 was a rival to the likes of the Fiat 500 and Mini 850. Powered by a sprightly, rear-mounted, air-cooled 598cc twin-cylinder engine allied to four-speed manual transmission, the newcomer was reputedly capable of over 70mph. Joining Auto Union and Audi as part of the Volkswagen stable in 1969, NSU stopped making its own cars four years later - the neatly packaged Prinz being deemed a sales threat to the VW Beetle and upcoming Polo/Audi 50.

One of just twelve survivors known to the DVLA, USG 529J is recorded to have covered under 26,800 miles from new. A notably late example that is said to be 'highly original' and to have had the benefit of 'remedial servicing and maintenance as and when required', the NSU is very good condition with regard to its engine, gearbox, electrical equipment, bodywork, Blue paintwork and Tan vinyl upholstery.

Rare and increasingly collectible, this lovely example, built towards the end of production and at a time when NSU were firmly in control of the newly-formed VW Audi (Auto-Union) group, comes MOT'd and is ready to be immediately enjoyed.
