Syrena Sport – Poland’s automotive icon

It was more than half a century ago that the Warsaw-based Fabryka Samochodów Osobowych (“FSO”, the now non-existent Passenger Automobile Factory) saw the birth of a prototype of the car which has mesmerized thousands until this day. One of the key people on the team working on the Syrena Sport sports car was Cezary Nawrot, a graduate of the Warsaw University of Technology. 

He graduated from the University in 1956. Then he joined FSO. Working there, he was assigned with a bold task: to design a sports version of the Syrena car. It was to be Poland’s response to that type of cars manufactured elsewhere abroad. The FSO team had got so committed to the assignment that they even worked on the car after hours.
