Introduced at the Prague Motor Show in 1905, the first car of the L&K company also managed to make a big splash with its two-cylinder V-engine. While this innovation was featured in the October 29 issue of the German automobile magazine, it was also announced on the cover of a weekly Czech magazine at the end of 1905. Carrying the excitement of the first day, the Skoda brand continues to make a name for itself with its different, innovative and practical models.

Saying that he is interested in automobiles and traveling in a 1974 model vosvos, Altıntaş said, “Our Minister Fikri Işık promised me the first domestic car. Good luck to our country and our nation. If a domestic car comes out, I got the word of the first car. Our Minister said that it will be on the market in 2019. I said, 'What are you going to do with the first car?' He said to me, 'We will give it to a citizen. We don't have any promises to anyone for now, but let me promise you first. If our President and Prime Minister did not promise anyone, we will give it to you,' he said. I guess the car is mine, since it was not promised anywhere and it came to me in the press," he said. “IF IT DOESN'T BE IN THIS WORLD, I WILL SEE IT IN THE OTHER WORLD” Expressing that he will leave a will to his children, Altıntaş said, “I don't see it in this world, I see it in the next world. Domestic cars are not bad. In the past, we could not find a ball bearing of the domestic car, we would fix it. Not so now. Turkey has everything. It can be done, isn't our head working in technology? It works in our minds at least as much as foreign countries. There are very good organizations. What is an automobile factory? I am happy that the domestic car came out. At least a thousand people work in this domestic automobile production. If you multiply by 3, 3 thousand people will eat bread from the domestic car. It will increase to 5-10 thousand people with its parts and sub-industry,” he said. "I DID NOT EVEN SEE THE PHOTO OF THE LOCAL CAR" Stating that he had not even seen the photograph of the domestic car, Altıntaş said, "I will take it as a symbol. It is not very important,” he said. Stating that he loves the work of Minister Fikri Işık and himself, Altıntaş said, “I love working people. God bless good people. Our minister, our mayor of the metropolitan municipality, provided many services to Gebze. There are some shortcomings, but it will be gradually. There was no hotel in Gebze, I built a hotel here. God has given us this day. May God give me a long life, I will continue to do it," he said. When asked about getting into a 1974 model car, Muzaffer Altıntaş said, “I love cars. These cars are crafting cars, not like now. Now it is made from tin. This car has a lifespan of 100 years. This car is 42 years old. It's like it just came out of the workshop. I bought this as a gift for my grandson as a symbol.” Muzaffer Altıntaş, who is from the Black Sea region and has an office in his hotel in Gebze, plays the kemençe from time to time.
