Mattel Disney Pixar CARS 2 Diecast: Sir Harley Gassup – The Czech Tatra 87

“Pixarlover” was at an automobile museum and spotted the real life Tatra 87 …

Only 3,056 were produced from 1936–1950. You can read more at Wikipedia.

I can safely say I’ve never seen one in the street.

Thanks for the great pics, “Pixarlover.”

AND he’s coming as a diecast before the end of the year!

It is a bit of a surprise as clearly he’s a new sculpt instead of a repaint but he is definitely a cool looking car and nice to have as a diecast … I’m betting there are not a lot of diecast releases of this car. Pretty nice they got the front door handle detail plus the air scoops and other touches.

I’m doubly surprised they did not upgrade him to the deluxe line (and charge a few more bucks) but he’s a single coming in the months ahead (probably Fall 2012).

    I think after a couple of years of frustration, Mattel is going to (hopefully) make up for all their mistakes! I Can’t wait for the new die-cast’s!!!

    This is a great piece of automotive history. Thanks, Pixarlover, for sharing the info!

    There were 3,056 actually produced. Do you think Mattel will top that?

    I actually found a couple of cars from case D at a local WalMart; we’re plodding forward!

    Read the story on Wiki the most interesting
    part is about Volkswagen being sued by Tatra
    and the lawsuit being dropped after Germany invaded Czechoslovakia
    and how the lawsuit was finally settled out of court for 3,000,000 Deutch Marks. I like knowing the real story of where the inspiration of the beetle came from and not from
    one of history’s worst people A.H..This car looks soo cool in person. Looked like it rolled off the factory floor just yesterday. Very cool car. I wonder if this car has ever shown up at Pixar’s classic/exotic car show.

    Looks like the child of a Volkswagen Beetle and a Citroen DS. Very nice, can’t wait for the Cars die cast.
