Goggomobil have added two new models to their range for 1960. Last year the company made what most people considered a retrograde step when introducing the Royal 700 model which featured a rigid rear axle on leaf springs. This model is continued virtually unchanged for 1960 as are the tiny Regent and Mayfair saloons which have gained a following in Britain.

The Royal 700 will now be available in Estate car form and is to be called the Esquire. It will have an all-steel body with a rear loading door which hinges upwards to roof level for ease of loading and the rear windows hinge at the front in the same way as the A40. The rear seat folds flat on the floor to give luggage space or five people can be carried if the seat is used. A permissible weight of 9¼ cwt. can be carried.

An entirely new model is the Fleetwing TS35 which is known in Germany as the Isar. Mechanically it is similar to the Royal 700 but the twin-cylinder, horizontally opposed four-stroke engine has been given a compression-ratio of 9.5 : 1 and twin Solex downdraft carburetters to give 35 b.h.p. at 5,700 r.p.m. A top speed of 85 m.p.h. is claimed.

The body is a streamlined two-seater fixed-head coupe rather similar in lines to the smaller coupe, but having a rather large radiator grille. It has two doors, bucket seats, rear luggage boot, fully wrapped round rear screen, winding windows, and a built-in heater and demister. The price has not yet been announced.
