German car manufacturer NSU introduces the new NSU Typ 110 at the 1965 Frankfurt Motor Show. The new car, based on the NSU Prinz 1000, has a longer wheelbase increasing the space in the passenger cabin and the luggage compartment. The large rectangular headlights differentiate the Typ 110 from the smaller Prinz models. The Typ 110 shares its engine with the Prinz 1000, a rear-mounted air-cooled four-cylinder 1085 cc engine (36 kW).

In the autumn of 1966 a larger engine of 1177 cc (44 kW) becomes available in the NSU Typ 110 S or 110 SC. In 1967 the NSU Typ 110 was renamed as the NSU 1200. Between 1965 and 1967 74,000 NSU Typ 110/110SCs were built. After the car was renamed, approximately 256,000 NSU 1200s were built between 1967 and 1972.
