About Rumpler

The Rumpler was a car developed by Austrian engineer Edmund Rumpler.

Rumpler, born in Vienna, was a designer of airplanes when in 1921 he introduced the Tropfenwagen on the Berlin car show. It was to be the first streamline car (beating the American Chrysler Airflow and Czech Tatra T107). The car featured a mid-engine layout, with a W6 engine. It had three banks of paired cylinders, all working on a common crankshaft. Around 80 cars were built. It was found to have a CW-value of only 0.28. Rumpler was the person who patented the swing axle suspension design, as well as the tranasaxle. The transaxle was used in some of the most significant vehicles of the 20th Century : the Mini, the VW Beetle, the Porsche 356 and 911 among others.

The test, which was run at a Volkswagen windtunnel in 1979, surprised engineers of the day. Volkswagen wouldn't beat the value until 1988 with the Passat.

Although the car was very advanced for its time, a big seller it was not. Little problems at the start (cooling), the appearance of the vehicle and the absence of a luggage compartment did not help sales. The car was sold almost solely as a taxi.

Auto Insurance

Defined as: The contract by which the insurer assumes the risk of any loss the owner or operator of a car may incur through damage to property or persons as the result of an accident. There are many specific forms of automobile insurance, varying not only in the kinds of risk that they cover but also in the legal principles underlying them.

In “plain” English, this means coverage that is carried by someone who is driving a motor vehicle that is involved in an accident that causes property damage or personal injury to someone.

Currently, New Hampshire and Wisconsin do not have “compulsory auto insurance liability laws”. Simply put, this means that these states do not require licensed drivers (and there should not be any other kind of driver) to have some type of auto insurance policy that provides at least minimum coverage. The remaining 48 states do have such insurance laws in effect.

You should check with the state you live in if you have questions concerning whether or not you are required to have auto insurance, and also to determine if you are required to have a certain amount of coverage. If you are required to have a certain amount, you will then need to check to see if there is a minimum amount and maximum amount.
