This is the prototype of a VW 411 Cabriolet built by Karmann Coachbuilders of Osnabrück (code name: Model Hamburg; no EA-number is known although a Cabriolet option was styled as EA 237 in April 1967).

When this car was presented at Wolfsburg, Volkswagen’s top management showed little interest. It was suggested that Karmann should develop a Cabriolet on the basis of the new two-door version of the Audi 100 instead.

Karmann actually presented the car at the 1969 Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA) but it never made it into production.

I believe (but could be wrong) that the 411 cab is actually in Hamburg. Apparently there is a prototype museum there, but haven't found it yet! We are there at Christmas so will try and hunt it down.

Ignore the date on the pictures, these were taken back in June this year at the Wolfsburg Automuseum, I would love to go visit the prototype museum in Hamburg :)
