Driving the rear-engined Tatra T87

I quite enjoyed how Writer Gordon Wilkins noted that ‘it produces in the driver the uneasy exhilaration which may be got from shampooing a lion’.

The truth is this engine was a very interesting water-cooled V8 in light alloy :D :D

Interesting, yes. So is shampooing a lion. Just a bit dangerous, like having a 8-cylinder engine hanging behind the rear axle... :wink:
