Imported by Mercedes Benz Australia, the DKW F93 was the last model release in the legendary and innovative 3=6 range. First launched in 1953, the 3=6 received its name from the pioneering West Germans at Auto Union as a marketing tactic for how the F93 utilises a two-stroke 3-cylinder engine, to produce similar performance to other manufacturers' models by using a traditional four-stroke 6-cylinder construction.

In keeping tradition with its predecessors, the F93 was a front engine, front wheel drive layout, with the engine located directly over the front axle to save weight with a shorter driveshaft. This is the same layout their successors at Audi would later adopt. The 896cc engine produced 40bhp with a top speed of 123km/h linked to a 4-speed manual gearbox.

Riding on stylish white wall tyres, the vehicle reflects an older restoration, having been repainted and receiving new interior trim some time ago.

The vehicle is in fine working order. Today it presents in overall excellent condition and comes with a history file including its original workshop and operator's manuals as well as vehicle import approval documents.
