The automotive industry in the Soviet Union created a huge number of different cars. Some of them were quite rare due to various reasons and circumstances. It is about such models that we will now talk. The overwhelming majority of them hardly remember even those who were born and raised in the USSR.
A prototype of a Soviet light car, created back in 1970. The car did not go into production, for reasons that are already extremely difficult to find out today.
2. ZAZ-1102 "Perspective"
This model was created as part of a project to create a promising subcompact car in 1973. The car, by the way, had front-wheel drive.
An experimental car, which was created on the basis of a government car. The car was designed back in 1949. Only two such machines were assembled at the factory, and then for experiments.
4. ZIL "Cheburashka"
A comic name for light trucks. This is how the workers themselves dubbed this machine. Just one glance at her is enough to understand why this ZIL was named after this “folklore” character.
5. AZLK 3-5-5
Another model that never made it onto the conveyor, although it showed great promise. Rumor has it that AZLK 3-5-5 from 1972 had a lot of interesting solutions. Too much. And it is for this reason that the car in the series was abandoned.
6. GAZ 61-415
The Soviet Union could have had its own pickup. The first sample was developed and assembled back in 1940. The project did not go further for several reasons. Including because in 1941 the ill-fated war began, which broke many good plans of domestic industrialists.
7. AZ-24-16 Prototype # 15
One of the deferred Volga prototypes, which the plant refused to give the green light to. The car was distinguished mainly by the design of the front end and twin headlights.
Want even more nostalgia? Then look at 4 helicopters "Mi", which still have not lost their relevance over the past decades.
