Does the P stand for 'plastic'? Someone told me that

Actually 40 mph average on the Green Hell is impressive in a car that does 65. A Diablo did 207 but only averaged 90 and the DBS 91 and 191. So it maintained a higher proportional speed and didn't blow up.

The legend. Nothing smells like the Trabant does. Nothing sounds like the Trabant does. Nothing rides like the Trabant does. Its exterior design is a timeless masterpiece, because it does not rust. The car is perfect for tuning. And the car beats set many records, including the Nordschleife time. The prodigy of communism engineering.

Yeah, and I don't believe Trabbi has so low torque, LOL

Topspeed: ca. 90 kph

This might be the slowest car on FastestLaps which actually has a Nordschleife time! 16:01!

I did not add it yet, because I can not find a reliable source for the laptime (only Wikipedia). I will ask FastestLaps first.
