Hitler's Favourite Car

Adolph Hitler loved the Czech-built Tatra 87. So much so that he declared, "This is the car for my highways," and the design of the 87 inspired the Volkswagen Beetle. However, the 87 was a big, fast car with V8 engine in the back: It proved dangerous to corner at high speeds and became notorious for killing many German officers. Surprisingly that large fin in the back didn't help much to stabilize it.

Wow, now I know why Hitler likes it. And now I wonder who would dare using it.
