The Embassy of the Czech Republic invites you to attend a TATRA Auto Show of several veteran and current models held at the Czech Embassy from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 7, 2011.
The Czech company TATRA, a.s., ranks among the oldest automobile companies in the world. In the 1920s, TATRA made headway in car design with the invention of a revolutionary chassis design with a central load-carrying tube with swinging half-axles, still used today. TATRA then worked intensively on a world novelty- the first ever series produced streamlined passenger car with an air-cooled rear mounted engine.
At present, the company's core product range consists of heavy duty off-road trucks and trucks for combined off-road and on-road transportation, such as fire trucks and military trucks.
Come see these amazing veteran and modern vehicles and learn more about the revolutionary engineering and technology of TATRA on May 7, 2011. Seminar sessions regarding the history and current models of TATRA will be given through out the day.
