Old Warszawa gets a makover
During the annual Economic Forum in Krynica, southern Poland, a Polish company called KHM Motor Poland unveiled a prototype of a new sports car carrying the legendary Warszawa brand, harking back to the earliest days of Poland’s post-war motoring revival.
Warszawa was first produced in 1950's
Called the Warszawa M20 GT, the car is intended as a homage to the original Warszawa (Warsaw), the first mass-produced car in Poland after its industry was decimated during World War II. Yet with its rakish looks and promises of adrenaline-inducing performance, the new prototype is a far cry from the rather stolid four-door saloon car which allegedly inspired it. With its distinctive fastback profile, the car attempts to invoke the typical 1940’s styling that characterised the original Warszawa, but its aggressive, avant-garde front would not be out of place in a Ferrari or a modern-day TVR, not to mention that no two-door sports version of the Warszawa has ever existed.
