ID 202 is a 1956/7 Volvo P1900 sport...volvos first attempt at a fibre bodied sports car...a miserable failure...

and i agree with awini on ID 201...it does look very french to me, with typically hotchkiss lines, but that radiator grille is not right...

So many days and no one guessed???? I was outta town (mahableshwar) and was sure u guys must have got it... so here I am revealing the identity of ID 200 and ID 201;

ID 200 is a 1948 Ford Taunus
This was a German made Ford Taunus and were made between 1948-52. This car was also produced in Netherlands as a Taunus 10 in 1952.


ID 201 is a 1948 Salmson S4 (S4 E Berline to be specific)

Salmson cars were made in France made between !946-1952. The S4 had independant suspended front wheels and were powered by either a 1730 or 2320 cc engine, both with twin overhead camshafts with 50 or 70 bhp with a top speed of 84 mph. Most cars were also fitted with an electrically operated Cotal gearbox tough the brakes were still mechanically operated and were inadequate.
The car in the pic is a Berline which was slightly longer and had specially ordered fittings as per the requirement of the buyer.

pawan, the "Official Guess the car Thread" is well over 800 posts old. A ground rule here is that kit-cars, one-off concept cars, motor show cars and customizations don't qualify to be here.
See post no. 777, 778.

ID 204 is a 1991 Vector W8 Twin Turbo.
A production car all right, a total production run of 17 Vector W8 cars were built for public sale.

Very similar in styling to offerings from Lamborghini, it was powered by a
5,973 cc Twin-Turbo V8 that developed a massive
643 bhp @ 5700 rpm and 854 Newton metre of torque @ 4900 rpm.

For all that power and torque, like a true American car that it was, the engine drove a simple 3-speed automatic transmission.

A truly draggable car, it was a 12-second quartermiler and could top 350 km/h.

ID 203 is the DKW 1000 SP

This was made between 1957-1963 and was available in the coupe or the convertible version.
It clearly imitated the Ford Thunderbird and had 55bhp on the tap on the S version which reached top speeds of 87 miles (140 kph)
Only 1640 convertibles were made as compared to 5000 of the fixed head coupe.
