TATRA - T87
The Tatra 87 (T87) was a car built by Czechoslovakia manufacturer Tatra. It was powered by a rear-mounted
2.9-litre air-cooled 90-degree overhead cam V8 engine that produced 85 horsepower and could drive the car
at nearly 100 mph (160 km/h). It is ranked among the fastest production cars of its time. Competing cars
in this class, however, used engines with almost twice the volume, and with fuel consumption of 20 liters
per 100 km (11.8 mpg). Thanks to its aerodynamic shape, the Tatra 87 had a consumption of just 12.5 litres
per 100 km (18.8 mpg). After the war between 1950 and 1953, T87s were fitted with more modern 2.5-litre
V8 T603 engines.
