The Tatra T613 was a large luxury car with rear mounted air-cooled engine manufactured by Czech manufacturer Tatra from the 1970s to the 1990s, as a replacement for the Tatra T603 series.
It featured an all new body styled by Vignale of Italy and used a dohc air-cooled V8 of 3.5 or 4.3 litres. The design was updated a further five times until being replaced by the Tatra T700 in 1996, itself a restyled T613-5.
The Tatra 613 vehicles were mostly used by the government officials, the industry executives and in limited numbers were also used as police cars and as the rapid response fire fighting and rescue vehicles during motorsport events.
A Tatra T613 was recently used in the film Hostel set in Slovakia.
