Motorsport Highlights

DKW Rally Successes

In 1953 Auto Union began to sell the DKW 3=6 with a three-cylinder two-stroke engine. The unexpected success of this new model in the first rallies for which it was entered justified the setting up of an Auto Union competition department for cars at the Düsseldorf factory. From then until 1964, DKW drivers gained more than 100 championship titles, 150 overall wins, 35 first-team successes and about 2,500 class victories.
