The DKW 3=6 Monza was a sports car built on a DKW 3=6 base. Named after the world-famous Italian Grand Prix circuit, the car set five world records in 1956.
After the series of wins by the DKW 3=6 Sonderklasse in European touring car racing and rallying in 1954 and 1956, two racing drivers started to develop a sporty body for the successful model. Guenther Ahrens and Albrecht W. Mantzel designed a record-breaking car on the basis of the DKW 3=6, incorporating an extremely lightweight plastic body built at Dannenhauer & Stauss in Stuttgart, Germany.
The complete vehicles were first built by Dannenhauer & Stauss in Stuttgart, then by Massholder in Heidelberg and lastly by the company Robert Schenk in Stuttgart.
Fritz Wenk had to discontinue his Monza production in 1958 when the new Auto Union 1000 Sp car was launched in 1957. As a result Auto Union refused to provide additional new chassis for his production of the Monza.
