Tatra Offroad Trucks Australia

Tatra is not dead! In fact the company is alive and well and continuing to build the tough, unkillable trucks that made the company famous. Tatra trucks continue the technology and design principles developed by Hans Ledwinka and his team in 1924, including the central tube chassis, independently sprung and driven half axles, bevel drive and air-cooled engines. Tatra trucks regularly compete in the world's toughest endurance challenge, the Paris-Dakar race, with great success.

If you're in need of a hard working truck in Australia, check out Tatra's Australian dealer, Offroad Trucks, Australia, located in the suburb of Maddington in my home city, Perth, Western Australia. They have a range of vehicles for all uses and can have bodies customized for specialist requirements. Check them out here:
