Hans Ledwinka designed the car in 1930. It was launched in 1931, the same year as the Tatra 70, and the two models have the same backbone chassis and swing axle suspension. The brakes are by ATE-Lockheed.[3] The Type 80 has wire wheels, whereas the Type 70 has disc wheels.

But the underlying difference is the engine. The Type 70 was built with a 3,406 cc six-cylinder OHC engine,[3] but the Type 80 was given a 5,990 cc, 65-degree V-12 sidevalve engine.[4] The engine produces 120 hp (89 kW),[5] giving the car a top speed of 130 kilometres per hour (81 mph).[3]

Tatra supplied the bare rolling chassis, engine and transmission. Customers chose a body style and which coachbuilding company would build it. Four-door sedans, cabriolets and six-seat limousines were built. There is at least one example of a two-door, four-seat convertible.[6] Sodomka of Vysoké Mýto built bodies for several Type 80 cars.

The Type 80 was Tatra's most luxurious and expensive car, priced at Kčs 195,000 to 200,000.[3]

Tatra built 22 Type 80 cars between 1931 and 1935.[7]

Presidential landaulet

In 1935 a unique Tatra 80 landaulet was built as the official state car of Czechoslovak President TG Masaryk.[3] On 18 April 2005 it was presented to the National Technical Museum in Prague.[6] On 29 September 2005 the Czech Republic declared that a set of five historic cars, including the Presidential landaulet, to be a national cultural monument.[8]
