T87 Flat12

Everybody automatically thinks Porsche when hearing about air cooled, rear mounted engine configurations. But wait a minute, there are many more vehicles with this drivetrain concept around. Especially the vintage Tatras are often overlooked or simply forgotten. Combining the aerodynamic body of a Tatra T87 with an air-cooled engine made in Zuffenhausen is a logical step, don’t you think? Well then, why not go all the way then and make it a flat twelve, sourced from a legendary 917? Just imagine seeing the Mulsanne straight through that split front window…

And yes, adding a roll cage and a couple of proper seats would probably be a wise idea.
