The car was presented in February 1936 together with its sister model, type 170 V, and the larger diesel model 260 D at the International Motorcycle and Motor Show (IAMA) in Berlin. The cars were more luxurious than the sister model with front engine and RM 4350, and 15% more expensive. 1939, the rear engined cars were due to the war and due to low demand without any successors.
