1958 Zunndapp Janus

Germany’s Zunndapp company specialized in motorcycles before jumping into the car business with its 1958 Janus. The results were less than impressive. The Janus traveled at top speeds of only 50 miles per hour, using only 14 horsepower. The rear-facing back seat was an interesting quirk, but it couldn’t save the slow-and-ugly Janus from automotive infamy.

    the door is front of the driver, the seat in the back is facing backwards, very little room to have your suitcase for travel,…i can go on forever about why this car is an ugly disaster on wheels.
