What Is Kanye West Driving In His New "Runaway" Video?

Wondering what Kanye West is driving in the opening of his (literally) epic music video "Runaway?" Although he may be rapping about Murcielagos, he's actually driving a Tatra. Czech sports cars? Yeezy, you one wild and crazy guy.

The car isn't a Tatra in the conventional sense, but rather the result of dropping a Tatra air-cooled V8 in the back of a vaguely supercar-ish looking vehicle. They were built by the small manufacturer/customizer MTX starting in the 1970s in then-Czechoslovakia.


The 1993 Tatra MTX he's driving is a rarer and more modern version, with the mid-mounted V8 putting out around 220 hp, which is good enough for a 0-to-60 mph run in 5.7 seconds and a top speed of 153 mph. It's nothing too impressive, until you remember this is one of just a small handful of Czech supercars ever built.

He's now one-upped those in the hip hop game who think rolling up in a Bugatti Veyron SS is cool. We expect to see Kid Cudi in a Mega Track any day now.
