Tech/Engineering - Automotive / Cars & Trucks / Vehicle specification terms for car sales website
German term or phrase: Aufbauart
As before, context is a website for a second-hand car dealer. This is from a list of one-word links for giving vehicle specifications. It's especially the "Aufbau" that I'm wondering about - could it be "model"?
