The Syrena Sport was a Polish prototype sports car.

Designed and built in the late 1950s, it was long considered the most beautiful car to ever come out of Poland. It was built by Fabryka Samochodów Osobowych FSO, which due to economic and political reasons never made it to mass production (it was made in very limited numbers).

Construction

The Syrena Sport was a 2-door coupe with a light fibreglass body. The engine was a 4-stroke 2-cylinder boxer engine with an aluminium block. The cylinders, cylinder heads and pistons were taken out of a Polish motorcycle, the Junak. The engine had a displacement of 700 cc and produced around 35 bhp (25 kW9 at 6000 rpm. This provided adequate performance for a car weighing only 710 kg. Each wheel sported a single-circuit drum brake. A lot of the Syrena Sports' accessories came from the French Panhard Dyna Z.
