Born On This Day


Thursday 8th December 1932

87 years ago

Born on this day, Claus Luthe, the celebrated German car designer, best known foe the second generation Chevrolet Corvair-inspired NSU Prinz, the NSU Wankel Spyder, and, in 1967, the revolutionary NSU Ro 80, which still stands today as a milestone in automotive design. The Volkswagen K70 was originally conceived by Luthe as the NSU K70, but came to the market after considerable delays with modifications to his original design. He was one of the first designers to embrace a digital approach to design, passing the designs from the design department to engineering in electronic format.
