Only two of these were built, specifically for the 1925 round Germany flight. They were powered, like the single engine L20, by a pair of Ferdinand Porche designed Mercedes F7502 19 h.p air cooled flat twin engines. Flown by Bruno Loerzer L21 D-623 came first in it's class winning 25,000 Goldmarks with the two single engined L.20 aircraft coming second and third and sharing a further 25,000 Goldmarks between them. The picture above shows D-623 and Bruno Loerzer second on the left.
