The painted bumpers, bare mesh grille etc could also mean it is a modern day replica, or perhaps even something from Zelensis and Enzmann.
Along similar lines, here is Herr Beutler's personal 4 seater I shot in Germany, 2005. A white and blue Zelensis roadster is just visible near it.
Might I add that ID 521 is an astonishingly pretty car

Refocusing on ID:521
---- xxx ---
Now shall we get back to identifying the car ID:521 of which not less than 200 examples were built ?

ID:521; DKW 3=6 Monza Sportecoupé
ID:521 is a DKW 3=6 Monza Sportecoupé
The brainchild of racing drivers: Günther Ahrens and Albrecht Mantzel, it was based on the mechanicals of the DKW 3=6 compact front wheel drive sedan.
In the background is my favorite classic airliner, the 1955 Lockheed Constellation.
The coupe body was made of extremely lightweight glass-fibre reinforced polyester.
Imagine: The body was light enough for one man to lift!!
Sitting on a compact DKW chassis, the car turned out to be 13% lighter than the sedan.
The 3-cylinder 2-stroke 900 cc engine, sounded like a 6-cylinder. Thence the name 3=6.
It drove the front wheels through a transaxle, putting out 40 bhp, enough to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 20 seconds and top out at 140 km/h.
Cars assemblies were completed by Dannenhauer & Stauss in Stuttgart, then by Massholder in Heidelberg and finally by Robert Schenk, the DKW dealer in Stuttgart.
Between them, 230 to 240 Monzas were produced.
About 30 to 35 DKW Monzas are thought to survive today.
Can anyone identify the location where this pic was taken?
In December 1956 a team consisting of Günther Ahrens of Karlsruhe, Heinz Meier of Düsseldorf, Roberto Barbay of Lugano, and Georg Theiler of Zürich shared time driving a DKW Monza at Monza, Italy. The 2+2 seat sports car set five Class G (up to 1100 cc) world records, within a single 72 hour continuous event, running on tubeless Dunlop tires.
The Monza was killed off to make way for the Auto-Union 1000 SP (modeled after the 1955/6/7 Ford Thunderbird).

I should have known you'd get it soon.
ID 524 is indeed a Subaru 360.
The 360 was produced from 1958 to 1971.
At its heart was an air-cooled, 2-stroke 356 cc engine mounted transversely in the rear, like a Volkswagon Beetle.
The engine was designed to be smaller than 360 cc so that the Subaru 360 would qualify for Japan's keicar class. The body was a monocoque construction with a fiberglass roof panel.
In 1958 it was considered very advanced.
When it was introduced in 1958, the 360's engine developed 16 bhp and Subaru claimed it gave 28 kmpl fuel economy. However, by the end of production in 1971, its power output had increased to 25 bhp. There was also an optional 36 bhp twin-carbureted engine.
I must ask, though, is it okay to post the same car after 200+ posts?
Maybe someone new can identify it?
Just a thought.
