    DKW 3 = 6. Just about

    For the early days of DKW we have to go back to the early 1900s. To the earliest days of the combustion engine.

In 1916, co-owner Jörgen Skaffen Rasmusen set his sights on creating a steam-powered human-powered […] More

    Summertime? Convertible time!

    At least: In moderation. We in the Netherlands still have to get used to the idea of ​​real summers. (And the idea that we will probably not go on Elfstedentocht anymore.)
