DKW Schnellaster

I took this photograph at the Richard Seaman Memorial Trophy meeting at Donington Park in May 2001 - the meeting where Audi brought along C-Type and D-Type Auto Union Grand Prix cars, together with various other cars and motorcycles produced by the Auto Union concern. This vehicle was parked next to the display area where these cars were on show, and it was presumably another of the vehicles brought by Audi.
It's a DKW Schnellaster, a vehicle produced by DKW Auto Union between 1949 and 1962 in Ingolstadt, to the north of Munich in Bavaria. The Auto Union factories were originally in Chemnitz and Zwickau in what became the Soviet controlled East Germany after the Second World War. Auto Union restarted operations at Ingolstadt in 1945 and eventually evolved into the Audi company.
