Dear Ro 80 enthusiasts,
the NSU Ro 80 was the first saloon car ever with a rotary engine. NSU developped this engine, also known as the Wankel engine, along with its inventor Felix Wankel and brought it to production maturity. The Ro 80 influenced the development of the typical modern wedge shape and was ahead of its time in many ways. It was voted car of the year 1967 shortly after its debut. Only approximately 38,000 of these timelessly beautiful, still modern and technically fascinating cars left the workshops in Neckarsulm between 1967 and 1977. Our club was founded in 1979, two years after the series production was brought to an end. With about 700 members in 16 countries, we are the largest association of Ro 80 drivers worldwide.
They prove daily with their many cars that the Ro 80 is a reliable and comfortable road vehicle, providing it is properly maintained.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO BUY A RO 80 OR KEEP YOUR RO 80 IN GOOD CONDITION?
We deliver all necessary LITERATURE for the maintenance and repair of your Ro 80: workshop manuals, spare parts catalogues and documents for maintenance and body repair.
There is a brochure with the collected TIPS AND TRICKS (only in German) from our club magazines from the past 30 years and the brochure PURCHASE ADVICE FOR THE RO 80.
We will help you to solve your TECHNICAL QUESTIONS. Many of our members are very familiar with the Ro 80’s specific requirements and would be happy to help you as TECHNICAL EXPERTS. A list of workshops and specialists can be found on our website.
LITERATURE – TECHNOLOGY – SPARE PARTS
We help with the supply of SPARE PARTS. To this goal, we maintain an extensive warehouse of new and reclaimed parts. Important replacement and wear parts, like shock absorbers, water pumps, sealing kits, brake discs, door seals, seal profiles etc. are regularly reproduced.
REMANUFACTURED and USED PARTS can be ordered from the warehouse. The current stock can be found on the website.
We publish a professional and informative club magazine in collaboration with the NSU Ro 80 Club Switzerland, the WANKEL-JOURNAL. (partly translated in English)
The Wankel Journal appears four times a year. It contains tips and tricks for the Ro 80, technical information, experience reports, dates and reports on the club life as well as small ads by the members. Additionally, we publish actual and historical information on the technology of the rotary engine.
The subscription price for the Wankel Journal is included in the membership fee.
