You have to admit the idea of a Tatra 603 is…..interesting. Whether its the admittedly quirky, quasi-futuristic, but aerodynamically sound (0.3 drag coefficient) styling, or that air-cooled hemi in the back, the Tatra T603 has a certain Cold War je ne sais quoi redolent with visions of midnight meetings at Checkpoint Charlie, hidden microfilm, and trench coat clad skullduggery. However, some of you may not be swayed by such Bond-ian nostalgia. So, for you skeptics, I present the following for your consideration.
Produced in 1962, the following promotional film…..perhaps the Citizen Kane of long form car commercials….tells the tale of a most eventful Tatra test drive. I’d share more details, but I’m not one of those spoiler-type people. Enjoy!
