TATRA 77, 1934—35

The Tatra 77 was the first mass-produced limousine with a streamlined body in the world, with an air-cooled eightcylinder engine mounted at the rear, and it caused a sensation at the 1934 Berlin Autosalon. Its teardrop shape proved that aerodynamics could significantly improve speed. The car also had a central headlamp that turned with the front wheels.
