This is the only "New" one in the world
It is still a New Car and so still needs running in!

Rear Mounted Fuel Injected Air Cooled 3500cc V8 Engine with Dog Leg 5 Speed Gearbox, with the engines main weight forward of the rear axle, making the car actually a mid engine configuration.

The car being a prototype has its quirky ways, but it’s unique and a once in a lifetime opportunity to buy the last and only brand new Tatra 613-5.
Fantastic backup and spares available through the Tatra Owners Club, who are most helpful.
This is a very rare car, you may never see another one, and it has only ever done 215 miles.
It sounds awesome!
