That's not much of a contest considering the Kübelwagen was basically the same as a Volkswagen Beetle other than the body. The Wilys GP vehicle was made to a completely different set of specifications that the Kübelwagen most certainly wasn't ever intended to match. It's like comparing a Tiger to a Grant... except in this case the American machine is superior (ha).

Hello to all :D; just a little question here.................

Taking into account the performance of Jeep MB and the German type 82 Kübelwagen............Built the British, French, Italian, Russian and Japanese a similar vehicle?. TIA. Cheers. Raúl M 8).
