Turk-183! The Volkswagen Iltis!

Yes, bro-hams, the father of the Quattro Coup , terror of Group B, was a 75-hp military vehicle designed to supplant the Volkswagen Thing. It's the Iltis, and just like the G-Wagen, it's a German vehicle appropriated by the Estonians in case the boys in Riga decided to get fresh. Conceived after Volkswagen's purchase of Auto Union, it's a kitbash of VW, Audi and DKW technology that gained favor with forces all over the globe, yet sadly, its time is passing. Still, the Belgians, Canadians and Germans cling to their Ilti. We cling to it, too.
