Indeed, it even has a 1.2 flat four with 25 hp at the back. It is only a prototype but no Volkswagen.

Mercedes-Benz W 17 model series. Some 12 prototypes of this model series were produced in 1931. It did not reach the series production stage.

The rear end obviously inspired the design of the Aero S1!

If it had sold in numbers I guess it would have been nicknamed the DucksArse?

I noticed this type Mercedes in the former Schlumpf collection in Moulhouse in France. Now the collection is called Cite' de l'Automobile.
Not sure if it had a ducktale but was very similar to an early Volkswagen Beetle.

According to "Vroom.be" all prototypes were destroyed.
Only one engine survived and is in the Mercedes museum in Stuttgart.
The design was by Hans Nibel.

Obviously I stand to be corrected by those with more knowledge but it reminds me of a Matra Djet.
