Top 10: Classic cars at the Mazda museum in Germany

Mazda has opened its first car museum in Europe – and the only one outside Japan.

Launched in 1962, the Carol carried on from where the hugely succesful 360 left off. It might have been a micro-Mini but it still had space for four adults. It is perhaps most notable for the 'cliff cut' rear styling, a theme which would be developed by the Ford Anglia 105E and the Citroen Ami - both of which had steeply raked rear windscreens. Power came from an all-aluminium, water-cooled, in-line, 358cc, four-cylinder - very forward thinking.
