Following the aftermath of WWII, the German automakers were adjusting to a new time. VW was producing their beetle as an affordable car for the masses.

While the power plant was derived from the VW Beetle, the body was a much more luxurious than bolted on fenders and sheetmetal: the seamless lines were achieved with welded butt joints and pewter body filler.
