Messerschmitt KR175
Fend's single seater was probably originally intended for war disabled persons.  The Messerschmitt was principally for the person who did not want to ride a motorcycle.  Instead of a stearing wheel there was a mini set of handlebars.  The Kabinenroller KR 175, as the factory named it, was powered by a 175 cc two-stroke engine by Fichtel & Sachs.  Because the engine produced 9 bhp but the car only weighed 220 kg (484 lb) the top speed was of the order of 50 mph (80 kph).  When a 200 cc engine was installed, the KR 200 was created of which 46,190 were sold.
