Tatra 613 is almost a limousine from Czechoslovakia, structurally related to the Zaporozhets
The Soviet automobile industry did not spoil fans with new passenger cars. Small cars were periodically updated, but business and premium classes in the USSR are represented by only a few models. "Volga" by the standards of residents of the countries of the socialist camp was the ultimate dream. But high-ranking bosses were also entitled to “Chaika”. This car was premium. As for the ZiL passenger cars, they were considered something fantastic. This state of affairs did not suit some officials and major bosses. Driving a service Volga was somehow not comme il faut, and the Seagulls were not their rank.


Perhaps one of these “offended” people contributed to the purchase by the Soviet state of the strange Tatra 613. However, these cars were often used by the traffic police. After all, their engines had a volume of 3,5 liters and developed 165 hp. With. In addition to its strange appearance, the Tatra surprised with its design solutions. For example, its motor is located at the rear, but not behind the axle, but above it. But that's not the most interesting thing. The engine of this car is air-cooled, which immediately put the model on the same level as the Zaporozhets. How did a five-meter sedan end up with such a power unit? However, the motors performed well and did not overheat. Or maybe there were no traffic jams in the USSR. And they will talk about the Tatra 613 on the channel “Ivan Zenkevich PRO cars”.
