The Škoda 440 and the similar 445 and 450 are cars that were produced by AZNP in Czechoslovakia between 1955 and 1959.[1] In Czechoslovakia, vehicles were known under popular name Spartak.

The three models are all powered by inline four-cylinder engines.

  • 440 Spartak (1955–1959) - 1089 cc, 29 kW (39 PS; 39 hp) @ 4,200 rpm
  • 445 (1957–1959) - 1221 cc, 33 kW (45 PS; 44 hp) @ 4,200 rpm
  • 450 (1957–1959) - 1089 cc, 37 kW (50 PS; 50 hp) @ 5,500 rpm

The 440, 445 and 450 were updated in 1959 with the saloons and estate models renamed to Škoda Octavia and the 450 convertible to Škoda Felicia.[1]
