Trabi was a very successful car in its era. It was launched in 1957 nad produced until 1991. Now Herpa, a toy manufacturer, decided is time for this legend to come back to life.
At the 2007 Frankfurt Auto Show, Herpa presented a mockup of what will be the next Trabi. A concept version will be unveiled in 2009 at the Frankfurt Auto Show.
The new concept will be called New Trabi and will be a five-doors hatchback, painted in blue. Based on the concept, the company will develop a production version that will meet all the safety and emission standards.
