2 Colani cars were built.

First picture is the other car (B). (the turn indicaters are different)
Comments under the picture is not correct!

The ad on page 6 is from the incomplete car (A) in January 62.
The second pic is when the car (A) is nearly finished in 1963.
To me it looks like this car and the auctioned car are the same.
I assume the different rear is an 'optical illusion'.

Some differences (e.g. door handles) are present between the car (A) in 1963 and now (A). Probably because the car was completely restored after is was found back completely destroyed (3rd-5th pic) in the early eighties.

There is no info about where the other (B) Colani car is. Nor where the (remains? of the) possible 3rd Alfa-Abarth 1000 is.

The german subcaptions in 'Stern' magazine are very funny in this case...

Do you have any photos of your 208A? I would LOVE to see them as this car has been a favorite of mine for many years. What's it like to own a car of which there is only ONE in the whole world?!

I know this is an old thread, but car 205 you are discussing won best to class (O-1 Postwar Early), and was a nominee for best of show at the 2015 Pebble Beach Concours. One of the most dramatic cars there, in my opinion. Well deserved. Apparently the restoration, which was significant, was done by the owner in his garage. Mr. Kinzel himself should have received an award.
