Aeromodded+ Tatra in the Czech Republic

Found this while hunting for a rare Tatra logo image I downloaded years ago but cannot find again.

Wildly modified, but I wonder if the aeromods would do any good. The flat spoiler seems too low and too small to simulate "the template" line effectively. The rear quarterpanel "vents" seem like an aero error likely to produce turbulence at about the worst moment.

The nose is maybe the best part.

Nonetheless, I love the bizarre thing. Look at that interior. You will never fall asleep at the wheel.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.

What I like the most about these is the air-cooled V8, even though it may not be better than a small-block Chevy at all...

I wonder how they got enough air to the cylinder fins to air-cool that V8.

BTW, where are the cylinder fins?

Here, Dive in. More than you wanted to know, five pages courtesy The HAMB:



Tatra Snow machine for WW2

The white one is lightly modified, shaved bumpers, different lights and a Bonneville spoiler.
