The front-mounted 1,688 cc air-cooled OHV air-cooled boxer engine produces 30 horsepower (22 kW).[1] This gives a top speed of 90 km/h (56 mph) and fuel consumption of 12 or 13 litres per 100 km.[2]

Attention was paid to weight reduction, with light alloy used for the cylinder head castings. In common with other Tatras of this time, the 75 had four-speed transmission and rear-wheel drive.

The car was offered with a range of bodies including two- and four-door sedans and convertibles and a six-seat limousine with a longer wheelbase. In its nine-year production run 4,501 Tatra 75s were built.

After the Second World War, in 1947, the model was belatedly replaced with the radically different Tatra 600 "Tatraplan".
