History
I'n a nutshell, the Trabant was East Germany's version of the VW Beetle.

Behind the iron curtain, there were very few cars you could get, this is one of them and the most popular.

The car has a 12-18 year waiting list depending on where in the communist bloc you lived.

It is powered by a 2-cylinder, 2-stroke engine with 26HP. The car is made with a material called Duroplast which is similar to fiberglass, but stronger.

With engine, the car weighs 1356lbs. The car is no frills. It does not even have a fuel gauge.
