Puma GT, 1967/1970. Malzoni’s DKW GT morphed into the Puma, initially with a DKW engine but then, after being taken over by Volkswagen’s Brazilian subsidiary, with a 1.5 litre  VW flat 4. The design of the car also changed, in 1970 when the Puma was restyled to resemble a miniaturised Lamborghini Miura. Middle pics show the original DKW Malzoni GT alongside the Puma GT and the restyled Puma GTE of 1970
