C''est au Salon de Genève de 1953 que fut présenté le Messerschmitt " KR 175 ", pour contraction de Kabinenroller signifiant " scooter à cabine " de 175 cm3. L''accès à bord se faisait par une verrière façon " cockpit basculant " sur le côté, à l''image des avions de chasse. La mécanique monocylindre à deux temps était d''origine Sachs. Le Messerschmitt KR gagnera en puissance en 1955 avec le montage d''un bloc de 191 cm3 produisant 9.5 chevaux et accouplé à une boite de vitesses à 4 rapports. L''exemplaire que nous présentons fut mis en circulation le 3 septembre 1957, il s''agit d''un KR 200 qui appartient à son heureux propriétaire depuis 1997. Intégralement restauré dans le passé, il est aujourd''hui en bon état général et présente bien, avec ses trois nuances de bleu. L''intérieur est, lui aussi, en bon état, les revêtements de sol plastifiés difficiles à retrouver ont été remplacés par des neufs. Atypique avec sa bulle bleue, il fit d''ailleurs l''objet d''un article et de la couverture dans le journal Gazoline en 2002. A la croisée des engins de l''aviation, de la moto et de l''automobile, la Messerschmitt KR 200 est un véhicule peu commun qui vous fait voyager dans une atmosphère unique et des sensations inégalables.

The Messerschmitt "KR 175" was launched at the 1953 Geneva Motor Show, "KR 175" being short for "Kabinenroller", German for "scooter with cabin", of 175cc. The access ''on board'' was through a canopy that opened to one side, just like in fighter planes. The two-stroke single-cylinder engine was originally from Sachs. The Messerschmitt KR gained power in 1955 with a bigger engine of 191cc, producing 9.5bhp, mated to a 4-speed gearbox. The car we are offering was registered on September 3, 1957. It is a KR 200 purchased by its owner in 1997. Fully restored in the past, it is now in good general condition and looks nice, with its three shades of blue. The interior is also in good condition, and the hard-to-find plastic floor coverings have been replaced by new ones. Atypical with its blue bubble, it was also the subject of an article and the cover in the magazine Gazoline in 2002. At the crossroads of aviation, motorcycle and automobile, the Messerschmitt KR 200 is an unusual vehicle that makes you travel in a unique atmosphere and with unmatchable sensations
