GROEsster Fuehrer Aller Zeiten
(Greatest Leader Of All Times)
Unfortunately Hitler's hand sign
was often grossly mis-interpreted
Because in fact he wanted to express nothing less than
"Look, Mein Volk, I will give you a car as big like this
and it will cost you less than 999 Deutsche Reichsmark!"
Hitler and the Volkswagon
JOSEF GANZ made his first Volkswagen sketches in 1923, designing an innovative small lightweight car with a mid-mounted engine, independent wheel suspension and an aerodynamic body, but lacked the money to build a prototype. Therefore, he passionately started publishing articles on progressive car design in various magazines and, shortly after his graduation in 1927, he was assigned as the new editor-in-chief of Klein-Josef Ganz in the Ardie-Ganz prototype, 1930 Motor-Sport. Josef Ganz used this magazine as a platform to criticize heavy, unsafe and old-fashioned cars and promote innovative design and his concept of a German Volkswagen.

the true ancestor
of the KdF-Volkswagen
wasn't a brown May Beetle
but a lovely bug called LadyBird
what a coincidence with the colors RED-WHITE-BLACK
