But because of financial NSU didn#146;t have the possibility to the K70 by itself on the 69 Motor Show in Just before the

grand opening of the annual Volkswagen toke the proto-type from the NSU stand. Luckily were already toke

official photographs of the NSU K70 and spread the people of the press .

The next Volkswagen brought the K70 unaltered on the The real reason was that to a lot of didn#146;t find it possible

Volkswagen kept the strongly 411 in production while they had the NSU K70 in their portfolio. which was

more modern.

Wolfsburg deaf for this criticism. It was a very unusual car for Volkswagen. the people were use to see a

rear air-cooled boxer engine. in a wheel operated car. The K70 was the opposite of that.

front wheel driven and a in line water-cooled engine in the Volkswagen even build a new factory in Salzgitter for

the production of it . were even plans to a VW K70 Combi . I personally think not a big lost that they build it. the car

was a disaster to look at .

All of together with independent framework. a superb position on the big interior-space and big trunk. Volkswagen they

had build the best ever. Unfortunately. it didn#146;t in big selling figures. with a of 211.127 K70#146;s in four and a year.

Volkswagen decided to end the production. The competition was to heavy (Audi. Golf ,#133;).

From the cars. there were 85.000 equipped with a engine. 105.000 with a engine and at last 20.000

a 1800cc/100Hp engine .The model was produced during the career. starting from till 31/03/1975 .

The 90Hp was produced till 31/05/1973. it was replaced by the 1800cc/100Hp model .

In 1971 there were car-body modifications. like as which were composed in one and more enveloping the car corners.

some sound-reducing modifications made. like filling-up the spaces with foam.

One year later. August the biggest changes were the front fenders and engine were redesigned.

The gearbox was a new which has influence on the consumption. the car indeed a little less.

For the levels I can be short. only two were possible. The normal or the L(uxury)-version.

the Luxury-version had a trip make-up passenger mirror. relax-seats with sleeping-position. coach

with central and rubber strips on the bumpers .

The list was also short. windscreen. tinted glass. rearview mirror. rear heating. front fog lights.

head restraints. steel car radio and a 55 Amp strong alternator(instead of .

With his strong and powerful his independent wheel suspension. big and trunk space. the Volkswagen K70 was the of his class

in those years. the K70 was an expensive car to buy. also were some problems leakages. engine sounds and

shifting gearbox. In today#146;s and turbulent traffic you can still the K70 without any problems.

Most of the didn#146;t survive. Of the approximately sold copies in Belgium. are 20 pieces left. that#146;s why I a register of

the still existing Volkswagen .
