too blurry to identify, if its a 1971 or -72 model (i need to see the bumper for it), but the colour is "goldmetallic" (L97H)

is the license-plate visible anyhow? i cannot see, if its a german or a polish one.

@weasel: if there would be a chance, that you could on flea-markets or oldtimer-markets check polish motor-magazines of the early 70ies for me, i would be very pleased. :)

The plates are rather white for me.

Here is article from the 1971 "Młody Technik":
http://ikm.wz.cz/index.php?action=show_article&id=0000000127 (described as one of the best W. German cars :p ).
But, as you can see (on the bottom) the picture is from the brochure/advert (the one where Ro80 was originally at the top, above the K70). "Młody Technik" wasn't about the cars, but generally about the "technic" ;) so there was only a little bit about it, and rather as a curiosity.
Perhaps there was more about this car in the biggest, in those times, our automotive magazeine - "Motor", but it is rather hard to find them for sale today. When I will be at the national library I will try to check did they have any articles about the K70.

many thanks for the link. :)
i cannot understand polish, but it seem, that the writer took one of the technical articles about the nsu-construction of that times. yes, i know the photo. it was one of the nsu-released photos. nsu had alle the years a very active pr-group. the car is even a nsu k 70-prototype (to identify for axample by the smaller nsu 1200-wheels and the nsu prinz-hupcaps. anyways, vw had used nsu-pics later on for the instruction manual, too.

sometimes libraries can be interesting. strange: at ebay is a big car-sales-brochure dealer from the usa (new jersey, if i remember correctly). i had bought some italian k 70-sales brochures from him - which had a seal of the "detroit public library automotive history collection".
and these werent the only ones. he still offers more car-sales-brochures in different languages, which all had this seal of the detroit's library.

perhaps it was thought for the general motors-, ford- or chrysler-engineers, for the lessons "lets learn from others, how to build a modern car." :p :D


once a friend gave me a plastic envelope with magazine-articles and pricelist-copies of the k 70. he got it from the archive of ford germany.
