Original Skoda 1,3L engine was removed and a rebuilt Tatra 2.8L V8 Air cooled engined installed. New old stock Skoda transmission installed. Minor work on rear body (larger air holes).

New brakes. Bigger tyres and better suspension.

General Comments:

Great musclecar, almost all parts are of cold war era origin. Tatra V8 engine has 180Hp and great torque and GREAT sound. Very fast and amazing. Head turner.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
