The Lloyd LP 250 is a small car introduced in June 1956 and offered for sale till 1957 by Lloyd Motoren Werke G.m.b.H. of Bremen. The body and running gear came from the existing Lloyd LP 400. The LP 250 differed in having the size of its two cylinder two stroke engine reduced to 250 cc. This produced a claimed maximum power of just 8 kW (11 PS) at 5000 rpm, less, even, than the 9.8 kW (13 PS) of the LP 400. The Lloyd LP 250 became known in Germany as the “Driving Test Nerves Car” („Prüfungsangst-Auto“ ) because, under the licence classifications then in force, vehicles having an engine capacity below 250 cc fell into a more accessible drivers’ licence category (Licence Category 4) than larger engined cars.[1] Presumably at the time when the drivers’ licence categories were devised it had not occurred to the legislators that such a category might include a four seater passenger car. In later years elderly motorists who had never acquired a more conventional drivers’ licence were happy to spell out that "vehicles" in this case included cars as evidence that they were indeed licensed to drive cars and did not need to take the additional test normally necessary for driving passenger cars (Licence Category 3). On its introduction in summer 1956 the car lacked some of the relatively luxurious features included on the LP 400 sister model. It came without hubcaps, bumpers or a backrest for passengers in the back seat. The car was offered for sale at just DM 2,980, though the missing features were available at extra cost as options. A more fully equipped version, the LP 250 V, replaced the basic LP 250 in April 1957, the formerly optional fittings becoming standard features: the price was increased to DM 3,350, however, which was the same as the price quoted for the more powerful LP 400. In total, 3,768 Lloyd LP 250 / LP 250Vs were produced. (Wikipedia) - - - Der Lloyd LP 250 ist ein Kleinwagen der Lloyd Motoren Werke G.m.b.H. in Bremen. Fahrwerk und Karosserie entsprechen weitestgehend denen des Lloyd LP 400. Wesentlicher Unterschied ist der auf 250 cm³ verkleinerte Zweizylinder-Zweitaktmotor, dessen Leistung mit 8 kW (11 PS) bei 5000/min noch geringer ausfällt als die des ohnehin schon schwachen LP 400. Der Lloyd LP 250 wurde „Prüfungsangstauto“ genannt, da er mit dem bis 1954 ausgegebenen alten Führerschein der Klasse 4 („Fahrzeuge ... bis 250 cm³“) gefahren werden durfte. Bei Einführung dieser Klasse dachte wahrscheinlich niemand an viersitzige Personenkraftwagen mit derart geringem Hubraum. Später wurde die Auslegung „Fahrzeuge = (auch) Autos“ gern von Leuten genutzt, die sich in fortgeschrittenem Alter keine Führerscheinprüfung der Klasse 3 (Pkw) mehr zutrauten. Als der Lloyd LP 250 im Juni 1956 angeboten wurde, kostete er 2.980,00 DM, allerdings mit einer gegenüber dem LP 400 verringerten Ausstattung ohne Radkappen, Stoßstangen, Dachhimmel und Rücksitzbank. Diese Teile konnten nachgerüstet werden. In Vollausstattung (LP 250 V), die ab April 1957 ausschließlich erhältlich war, kostete der Wagen 3.350,00 DM bzw. genauso viel wie der LP 400. 3768 LP 250 bzw. LP 250 V wurden gebaut. (Wikipedia)
