1948 Tatra Model 87

The 1948 Tatra Model 87 was a Czechoslovakian luxury car produced by Tatra, a company known for its aerodynamic designs. The Model 87 was considered one of the most advanced cars of its time, with its sleek, teardrop body and rear-mounted, air-cooled V8 engine capable of producing 85 horsepower.

The car had advanced engineering features such as fully independent suspension, a monocoque chassis, and a streamlined body that allowed for improved aerodynamics and fuel efficiency. The Model 87 was also notable for its unique styling cues, including its three-headlight arrangement and a distinctive, sweeping rear-end design.

Despite being a luxurious vehicle, the Model 87 was also practical, with a spacious cabin and generous trunk space. It could comfortably seat four adult passengers and was capable of reaching top speeds of 100 miles per hour.

The Tatra Model 87 was produced in limited quantities and is now considered a highly sought-after collectible car due to its rarity and innovative design. It remains an icon of Czechoslovakian automotive engineering and is remembered as one of the most distinctive and unique vehicles of its era.
