Power is via a 900cc three cylinder with a massive 40hp. With this the Monza could do 87mph flat out. In fairness a modern golf cart would probably accelerate faster but the golf cart wouldn't sound like this. Excellent.
The shame about this car is that in 1957 Audi produced a competitor car and so wouldn't provide the chassis needed to keep the Monza in production. No one seems to have a handle on how many of these cool cars were built but here's a link to pics of a racing one. Check out the engine bay of the silver car in the second row. Beautiful.
