Lower fastback body than 110 saloon on which it was based, and always with the most powerful engine for the range. Started with 52 PS 1·1, 4 PS more than the saloon. Cast-iron cylinder head on aluminium block, fed by twin-choke Jikov carburettor. Four-speed with synchromesh on all gears. Independent suspension with coils all round; swing axles at rear, making for tricky handling. Front disc brakes, rear drums. One-off Super Sport (Typ 724) built in 1971, with 72 PS. Extra headlamps from 1972, and more powerful heater, in line with 110 LS saloon.
