TATRA TWELVE

Chassis only.

Alias the Model 80, and quite a strange luxury car. V12 engine had single overhead camshafts, there was extensive use of alloy and no less than two oil pumps. 150ins wheelbase frame was backbone with transverse leaf spring ifs, power assisted brakes, and there was a 'silent third' four speed 'box. Doubtful if any reached these shores, especially at £2950 before you took the chassis to the coachbuilder.
