The Aero 30 was a small passenger car, manufactured in 1934–1947 by the Aero company, Dr. Kabeš aircraft factory, in Prague. The car was equipped with a two-cylinder two-stroke engine that powered the front wheels. A total of 7,964 cars were created.
The new Aero 30 was introduced on the XXIV. Prague Motor Show, in April 1934. It was introduced in roadster and two-door limousine versions. Aero 30 aroused great interest of visitors and won a number of orders, by the end of 1934 600 cars were sold.
The Aero 30 cars were used by the carmaker in a number of races, competitions and promotional rides, including participation in the 1000 miles of Czechoslovakia race.
The Aero 30 is a small sports-style passenger car. The chassis consists of a steel platform frame welded from closed profiles of rectangular cross-section. A floor made of openwork sheet metal is welded to the frame from below. The entire frame is suspended below the wheel axle, which achieves a low center of gravity. This gave the car an above-average ride in its time.
This wonderful example of a two-door limousine comes from the first year of production, when only 600 examples were built. The limousine is even rarer than the roadster as only a handful of Aero 30 two-door limousines survived until today. In 2014, the car underwent a complete professional renovation. The engine is absolutely trouble-free and reliable.
