Walter Röhrl in the Autostadt

Okay so actually this isn’t really about Walter Röhrl since we missed him. A couple of weeks ago, the Autostadt had an event with him where he talked about his career and answered questions. Torsten, Marc and Tobi went but I couldn’t since our container would finally arrive the next day.

In the car museum of the Autostadt, however, they had created an exhibit with some of his cars. I wanted to at least see that and therefore Jessie and I went last Friday.

The exhibit itself was small but very nice. It had a few cars, a bicycle (that Rörl apparently uses for training), and some other rally related items.

I had hoped to to take a few close-up pictures of the cars but had forgotten that rally cars are usually not very nicely designed and full with advertiesements.

Therefore, we went upstairs in the museum as well and went through the general exhibition. We saw this Messerschmitt Kabinenroller that I hadn’t previously seen.

Additionally there was the last VW Beetle that was produced in Puebla.
