Prague to Pebble or Bust: 1968 Tatra 603 Top Speed Revealed [Video]

Tatra 603

Our 1968 Tatra 603 is currently on a boat making its way to the United States to continue its journey to Pebble Beach, but before we left Europe we decided to see just how fast the old girl would go. Tatra is the third oldest manufacturer in the world after Mercedes-Benz and Peugeot and in its day, this car was quite a wonder. It’s been 45 years though, so time has taken a bit of a toll. Still, she’s got some life in her yet and then some as we prove in our latest #Prague2Pebble video.

Nicole Wakelin fell in love with cars as a teenager when she got to go for a ride in a Ferrari. It was red and it was fast and that was all that mattered. Game over. She considers things a bit more carefully now, but still has a weakness for fast, beautiful cars. Nicole is a member of the New England Motor Press Association and also writes for Automotive IT News, NerdApproved, and GeekMom. You can find her on Twitter, Facebook, and Google+.
