Last week I mentioned “badge engineering”, one of the first automobile companies that comes to mind is BMC/British Leyland which produced such gems as the Morris 850, also as the Austin Mini, and the Riley Elf and Wolseley Hornet. However, Central Europe also produced some corkers. One car, given the name as the second worst car in the world, had connections to Italy, Yugoslavia and Serbia, and were just badge engineered. I asked what was it? It was the Yugo, also known as the Zastava and was based on a Fiat.
So to this week. Have a look at this week’s car. It was built in 1935. Was it a four stroke or a two stroke? Clue: it has 16 cylinders.
