He promised that every German would be able to buy a “people's car” - a cheap but durable and reliable car made in Germany. Best advertising for the Nazis and it was impossible to come up. Fuhrer formulated the basic requirements: capacity of 5 people, fuel consumption up to 8 liters and maximum speed up to 100 km / h. And the most important price: no more than 1000 marks.

The developed program stipulated that every week a worker would transfer 5 marks to a special account. And after 3 years, 8 months, he would have accumulated 990 marks for which he could buy a car called KdF-38 "Kraft durch Freude - Strength through Joy."

To create a plant for the production of "people's car" was organized by collecting funds from ordinary people. A total of 336,668 Germans transferred about 110 million Reichsmarks to the Berlin Bank. But none of the Germans who transferred their money, and did not get the car.The whole project was financially untenable - it was clear from the very beginning.
