Chronology
Predecessor Tatra 613

The Tatra 700 was a large luxury car released in 1996 by the Czech car maker Tatra. It was essentially a heavily restyled version of the Tatra 613 model it replaced.

The T700 was offered as a saloon with either a 3.5 or 4.4 litre 90° air-cooled V8 petrol engine, or as a two doored T700 GT model.

Tatra 700-2 (1997)

The model was not successful, nor produced in large numbers, and production was halted in July 1998.[2] The Tatra 700 was the last passenger car made by Tatra, although it continued to build commercial vehicles.
