Tatra T-57 (convertible)-1934

Tatra T-57 (convertible)-1934

In 1931, Tatra introduced the T-57 model, with the air-cooled, four cylinder, overhead valve engine placed in front.  The T-57 was one of Tatra's most popular models – four series were produced.  It remained in production until 1949.  The T-57 was a faster and more powerful version of the T-12.  By adding two cylinders, Tatra was able to increase the horsepower to 18, and raise the top speed to 50 mph, but the basic air-cooled engine and swing axle chassis remained.  The T-57 was also offered in a 2-seater convertible body style or a 4-seater hardtop.
