The DAF Car Transporter was introduced in 1969 as K-11 in the King Size range. It consists of a cab and its permanently-attached trailer. Five mainline vehicles can be driven onto and carried on the trailer: three on the upper level and two on the lower level. Adjustable plastic tabs hold vehicles in place when the upper level is lowered for loading and unloading. These tabs were prone to breakage and loss, and are absent on many surviving examples.

The model was moved to the new Super Kings range in 1971, retaining its K-11 catalog number.
