Wow! A Tatra?
Cool car. Looks like an American-Italian mix.

Now I know more:
Quote:

The JK was a one-off special, masterminded by Czech automotive engineer extraordinaire Julius Kubinsky. The sole example hit the streets of Czechoslovakia in 1955.

It originally borrowed a 2.5-litre DOHC straight-six from Alfa Romeo, but this quickly gave way to an air-cooled Tatra 603A V8 of the same capacity. This was later chucked to make room for a 140bhp Tatra Sport variant of the same unit. In this trim, the car was capable of well over 200km/h.

The JK's fate is unknown. It's presumed dead.
