Czech car killed more Nazi officers than active combat

This is a fantastic car, a luxurious Czech car that was far ahead of other manufacturers predating the vaunted Tucker by more than a decade.

Volkswagen was sued by Tatra for infringing on it’s design! However the out break of World War 2 war put a stop to the litigation.

As reported in War History

Historians have revealed that more Nazi officers were killed in the Czech car, the Tatra 87, than in actual combat.
