NSU built a licensed version of the Topolino in Germany. Approximately 7000 of these NSU-Fiats were built, of which the most expensive variant was this Weinsberg roadster model. Fewer than 500 were built, and they bear more than a passing resemblance to a scaled down BMW 327 or 328.

This particular car is a charming restored example, the job was done in the Netherlands. It would make an ideal downtown runabout, novelty, or characterful estate car. It was restored to very good standards. The car is otherwise cosmetically outstanding, with excellent metal trim, lamps, and chrome. The unusual NSU/Fiat badging is intact and in great shape, and the glass and Bosch headlamps (which look like scaled down 540K items) are in excellent shape as well.

The interior is very nice, with excellent upholstery done to high standards. The instruments and switches are in great shape, as are the carpets. The steering wheel is excellent. The convertible top is a nice canvas item with boot, and the rear storage area is a surprisingly large nicely upholstered space accessed behind the seats.

The engine compartment is tidy and compact with light soiling only, and would respond well to a thorough cleaning. The car runs and drives nicely, and is reasonably quick, being noticeably faster than a Citroen 2CV. The lower gear ratios are closely spaced for the best acceleration, while the fourth gear ratio is quite tall to facilitate reasonable cruising.

This is an extremely rare and adorable little roadster. Nicely restored, it operates very well and attracts lots of positive attention wherever it goes. It is the perfect antidote to the jaded crowd at prestigious concours events and is also enjoyable to drive.
