Although the Tatra V570 Family Car never became a production car in Koprivnice, it is interesting from many aspects.


tatra v570 33

1933 Tatra V570.

It was the first rear-engined passenger car. The air-cooled, twin-cylinder with overhead valve gear had a capacity of 54cc and ran at 3500 rpm.

The front axle was formed by a swinging parallelogram, the rear axle swinging half-axles. Both axles were suspended on leaf springs. The maximum speed of the car was 80 km/hr.

The car came into series production much later under the VW mark, though the prototype had been the work of Tatrta Koprivnice designers.

This was after WWII when the German employees of the Koprivnice factory were displaced to the German Federal Republic. There, the blueprints of the V570 prototype were used for starting the production of the well-known "Beetle".

When I saw the text with that picture the first time, I really had my doubts of it's accuracy. We know the Beetle was all sorted out before the war and produced during. It's the Soviet Tatra talking here.
