This Messerschmitt KR201 is one of 304 built in 1957 and 1958. The KR 201 roadster was the lowest-production model produced in the nine years Messerschmitt cars were manufactured, 1955 through 1964. This example is one of the lowest-mileage KR 201 roadsters known, with only 2,720 original miles. Once owned by the nationally recognized animal trainer Orin Benson, the car was neglected and put in storage for many years. It was purchased by the current owner in 2009. In 2013 a comprehensive factory-correct restoration was performed by the 'Schmitt Haus.' All body and mechanical components were completely restored, and the original hardware was returned to the factory-correct finish. Paint colors and finishes were duplicated to factory standards, both interior and exterior. The folding roadster top was replicated in every detail, including the stitching and plating on the folding steel frame. The interior is the original KR 201-specific black with red piping and 'snakeskin' trim, and was reinstalled because of its rarity and condition. The car has taken home numerous awards, including Best in Class at the 2016 Hilton Head Island Concours d'Elegance; First in Class at the 2014 Cobble Beach Concours d'Elegance; the 2013 Barrington Concours d'Elegance Spirit of Buddy Pulumbo Award; third place at the 2013 Celebration of the Automobile Indianapolis Motor Speedway; and Best in Class at the 2011 Geneva Concours d'Elegance.
