Something about a trip around the world in 97 days:

The crew of Břetislav Jan Procházka and Jindřich Kubias in a dark blue convertible, a standard production Rapid vehicle, toured the world in record time - in just 97 days, which meant a world record.

The journey began on April 25, 1936 and led through Moscow and Tehran to Mumbai, via Singapore and Shanghai to Yokohama and Honolulu, then via San Francisco and New York back to Europe - via Paris and Nuremberg to Pilsen and Prague, where they arrived on 1.8. 1936. The tachometer showed that they had traveled 27,600 km along the axis, while the engine did not have to be repaired during that time, which proved the intact officially verified sealing of the engine block.
