Malaxa (car)

The Malaxa was a car built in 1945 in Reşiţa, Romania, by the factories of the Romanian tycoon Nicolae Malaxa.


Malaxa had an air-cooled 3-cylinder rear radial engine, rear wheel drive (RR layout), and was capable of developing 30 bhp. The top speed was 120 km/h. Malaxa offered a high level of comfort, and could carry six persons in all.

The production was stopped when the Soviets decided to move the production line in the Soviet Union, allegedly after a high-ranking official from Moscow had a ride with the car in Sofia, Bulgaria.[1]
