The owner has made a mickey of everyone who was enamoured by that vehicle..
If you want proof I can post the links to this.

well then i was right. I commented to a friend that i had seen a similar DKW with twin 2 cyl engines (two stroke) and this car is very similar to it.... are they related?
and imagine giving this car a prize.....that only shows what kinda people run the organisation....no idea at all. Im surprised.

the last picture at the bottom is of a genuine G1200 i found online...all the others are of the car you saw in bombay, which was apparently conjured up for the nizam...

The owner (whos a swell guy, with around 15 great cars) did not know these details till I told him a couple of years back, so he now calls it a VW Tempo, 1939.

Hi Karlos,
Sorry I didn't mention that I was asking about the photos other than the bottom one. It's sad that the vehicle won a prize.

I wrote an email to Mr. Nittin Dossa after that with all the evidence..but got no reply from him. I think the original has two water cooled engines
Regards

Yeah V-16 that may be.. but my e-mails have had some effect cos you will notice the name VW doesn't appear against this vehicle on the VCCCI website
