But will the chassis and tranny be able to handle that much power?I agree with u the Amberoid looked ugly.
Thanks for sharing.Here are some more kremlin krazy kars.

Have to agree with GTO. The Volga V12 is a killer.

The front part of exterrior is left almost unchanged from Russian Volga. Except the Volga logo and xenon headlights.
But now there are no more 4 doors, only too left. And wheels look like 19″ from M6.

The engine,chassis and drivetrain are all lifted from the M6! Only the bodywork is different.Now thats retro-futureism!!

Found this amazing review of the Volga V12 on Car and Driver
http://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/...ature/(page)/1

Here's the intro:
Snow is falling over Moscow in the failing winter light. Down Tverskaya Street comes a convoy of bureaucratic black sedans, like a scene from the gloomy days of Comrade Brezhnev, except now they part a sea of battered Ladas and brand-new Audis. Looking right, the convoy can glimpse the golden spires of the Kremlin and the walls of Red Square before heading for the plain, stone-slabbed Duma, the Russian parliament

That's it!
Can a car be art?
Yes it can!
Can a car be a fashion accessory?
Yes, of course it can!
And this is a monster at that!
This to me is like Russia's answer to the Alfa Romeo 8C which is a ghastly looking car IMHO, and probably to the Spyker C8 too.

8C, C8...hmmm....interesting nomenclature.
