So if you rotate the left headlight the engine gets louder and the other changes it from radio 2 stroke to radio 4 stroke etc? Cunning these Germans.

well done but not too hard knowing my interests  ;)

Bruetsch must have liked them - he fitted them to The Rollera, Bussard and Pfeil fronts as dummys and Pfeil rear wings as engine vents . interestingly production Rolleras - they built 6 , have a different arrangement of 3 ally bars across the nose - i wonder if VW objected ?

 ;D al are you tuning into R2 or V2

Now, time for me to outsmart you with my amazing Brutsch Knowledge...

The V2 also had them, it has the same nose as the Pfeil.

This doesnt have it, but I have never seen these recent pics of the France Jet v2n... http://www.djibnet.com/photo/br├╝tsch/

The first link didnt seem to work correctly.

Hehe, I can virtually guarantee I am the kid with nthe most microcar knowledge on earth ;) I know a guy in the same grade as me who knows quite a bit aswell.

Microcar-World is taking place. Still needs a load of work, but it will be a site with information on loads of cars :)
