NSU was a German manufacturer of automobiles, motorcycles and pedal cycles, founded in 1873. Acquired by Volkswagen Group in 1969, VW merged NSU with Auto Union, creating Audi NSU Auto Union AG, ultimately Audi. The name NSU originated as an abbreviation of “Neckarsulm”, the city where NSU was located.
The NSU Prinz (Prince) was produced from 1958 to 1973. At the 1963 Frankfurt Motor Show NSU introduced Prinz 1000. A sporting NSU 1000 TT (with a 1.1 litre engine) also appeared, which was later developed into the NSU (1200) TT and NSU TTS models. All had the same body with inline-four air-cooled OHC engines and were frequently driven as sports cars, but also as economical family cars as well.
The NSU Prinz 1000 TT was built in 14,292 examples between 1965 and 1967, when it was replaced by the bigger engined TT.The small, rear-engined NSUs were phased out in 1973, as production capacity was needed for larger and more profitable Audis. The successor of the NSU Prinz was the front-wheel drive Audi 50, later rebadged Volkswagen Polo.
Personally, I have emotions for NSU, because the NSU 1200 was “my”(dad’s) first car I remember as a little kid (He also had a Fiat 600 /Zastava 750 as his first car before, but I don’t remember that…). In EX Yugoslavia NSU Prinz was produced in Sarajevo (Bosnia), and was very common on the roads. Outside Europe it was Egypt and Uruguay.
I found the 3d model somewhere few months ago, and I wanted to give link and credits as I usually do, but now I can’t find it any more. Maybe it was removed. Anyway, credits to whoever made it and shared it; and helped this part of the history to live forever…
Replace version I created for “Omnis” (with all tuning parts) because I wanted “Vented hood” as spoiler, and Omnis mods could provide it. Also Omnis has two liveries, and I wanted car with livery mod too. Only thing that does not match , Omnis is AWD instead of RWD (BTW, this can be fixed in vehicels.meta).As I usually make, there are two replace versions and you can choose plate shapes.
For Add-On version you can change plates as tuning parts. Both versions can tune wide body, but you will need “vstancer”mod, to adapt the wheels and make it goodlooking …. and yes – breakable glass,dirt,dust,scratches,damage,burnt,inner glass does not turn black after upgrade…, I tested all I could remember and it all works fine. If I forgot something, please forgive me.
