What's The Best Car No One Remembers?

Some cars are justly heralded and recognized by all. Some are at best known only by a cult of true believers. What's the best car that has slipped through the cracks of the broad enthusiast mindset?

NSU is now a division of Audi, but it definitely had the Vorsprung durch Technik mentality well in place before the nameplate was fully absorbed. Its Ro80 remains one of the most important and influential cars in recent history...and one that seems to have been nearlyy forgotten. For sure, we don't see too many here in the United States, but we don't see too many other widely-appreciated rides, either. (When was the last time you saw a DS, anyway?) It's a brilliant, if sometimes troublesome, machine that deserves far greater appreciation.
