Brazilian DKW-Vemag Fissore

Based on the very same chassis of the DKW F94 made under license in Brazil by Vemag, the Fissore had a more upscale approach targetting the imports. Made from '64 to '67 when Vemag merged with the Brazilian branch of Volkswagen, this model had low production figures despite its then-modern look and the simple underpinnings which led to an ease of maintenance. Unlike the German DKW F102 which resorted to an unibody structure and evolved into the Audi F103, the Brazilian Fissore didn't get a direct replacement within the local Volkswagen range, even though a few had been repowered with Volkswagen EA827 and Renault Cléon-Fonte engines.
