Default A Russian Supercar The Russo Baltique

http://www.globalautoindex.com/news.plt?no=1453

http://www.supercars.net/cars/3472.html

this is the first Russian Luxury cra since 80 years.It is a reborn as the name Russo-Baltique.In the begining of the last century the Brand Russo-Baltique appeard and made cars for Tsar in Russia.Now The brand is back.
It is a supercar 2 doors V12 Maybach engine 550 hp powered.It was presented at Villa D'este a few days ago.They will make only 3 cars per year and the price is about 1.8 millions of US Dollars.This is much more expensive than a Bugatti Veyron.The Russo baltique uses many Mercedes-Benz components.It is assembled in Germany in Munich and in Russia too.The style is retro.Look like a Bugatti Atlantic.

Beautiful! Looks just like something outta batman! Hey, Isn't that what everybody including me said about the maybach exelero?! This looks like it's little bro (or sis).
But equally stunning no doubt!

If the car won't kill a person by its beauty, surely its price tag will!

Godspeed.

Alok.

The front end is a little too busy, otherwise an eye-popping design, and an excellent idea!!!!


Things like this, the Weismann roadster/coupe, and the Maybach exelero just roooooole!!!!

Hmmm..... Interesting car. Like the looks though the side profile could be a little cleaner.

Dont like the wheels though.

BTW, can it run on a shot of Vodka?!!!

It's nice if you want to look different. I don't seem to be able to digest its looks. If I had that kind of money to blow, I'd rather have the Veyron. Among retro styled cars, I think the Holden Efigy is much, much cooler.

I totally agree, Aditya. The Holden is in a class of its own when it comes to eye-pop-ingness.
