The Tatra T77 was the first serially produced aerodynamically designed automobile.

Launched in 1934, and produced until 1938 it was powered by a rear mounted 75 hp 3.4 litre air-cooled V8 engine. A lightweight magnesium alloy called Electron was used in the engine, transmission, suspension and various body parts. The T77 also had one of the lowest coefficients of drag at 0.212.
