Roman Belz's very early kleinstrennwagen from 1948. It was Fiat based, clearly front engined and seems to have retained the Topolino's front suspension complete, a la Cooper. Considerable effort has gone into streamlining the body but the weight probably outweighed any aerodynamic advantage. As far as we can tell Roman only raced the car for one year, without notable success.

Thanks to Jean-Marie Herman. If anyone has any more details or photos of Roman Belz or his car, please get in touch.
