FMR, short for Fahrzeug und Maschinenbau (Vehicle and Mechanical Engineering), was a German automaker. FMR was founded by Fritz Fend, a noted Messerschmitt aircraft designer. Due to being banned from making aircraft after WW2, Messerschmitt turned their attention to road cars, with their one offering, the Kabinenroller. These cars were designed by Fend, who purchased the rights to his creation from Messerschmitt, who lost their interest in automobiles once their aircraft ban was lifted. Fend's company, FMR continued to build the cars under the Messerschmitt brand, but a sporty, four-wheel version of the Kabinenroller, known as the TG500 was sold under the FMR brand. The FMR TG500 was introduced in 1958, largely based on the Messerschmitt Kabinenroller three-wheeler, the TG500 had the notable addition of a fourth wheel. These rear-engined, rear wheel drive cars featured tandem seating for its two passengers, while being offered in roadster, bubble-top, or convertible versions. The TG500, unofficially known as the Tiger, was FMR's only model. It was powered by a 494cc two cylinder engine and was equipped with a four speed manual transmission. Just 320 examples of the FMR TG500 were built before the end of production in 1961.
