    Volga V12 by a:level

    Construction

    Spy style: the design is based on the charismatic shape of "Volga " GAZ-21; its heart is tough and has the aggressive temperament of BMW 850 CSI. It is certificated as BMW-850 with upgraded bodywork in all the documents. In fact it is a compilation of technology and design ideas typical of its "parents".

    Mother

    "Volga" GAZ-21
    Astonishing beautiful, it somehow became an Outstanding Russian car. Volga GAZ-21 was first manufactured in 1957. A year later there appeared an idiom – this sparkling "vamp" was called "shark's mouth" because of its peculiar radiator facing. It gave rise to many rumors: they said that once Volga had crashed into a tram and overturned it. The headlines in the newspapers during the international exhibition, where Volga had gotten the grand-prix said:" Russian tanks on Brussel's streets!"
    Volga GAZ-21 – is the symbol of the imperial epoch.

    Father

    BMW 850 CSI
    Opened a new epoch in grand-tourismo (GT – is a car for travelling across continents), BMW 850 is somehow a symbol too. It is a car that seems to have very tough and aggressive character, but you just have to know how to get alone with it.

    Technical Characteristics: from BMW 850 CSi to Volga V12

    • Engine SOHC V12
    • Displacement 5576 sm3
    • Transmission 6-speed manual
    • Maximum speed 250 km/h (is limited)
    • Acceleration 0-100(km per hour) 6,3 s
    • Power 380 horse-powers @ 5300 revolution per minute
    • Torque 559 N/m @ 4000 revolutions per minute
    • Unique maneuvering rear suspension


    Mix

    The work lasted for 17 months.

    During this time:

    • After draft slating the clay model was built (scale 1:1), in which all shapes and proportions of the future automobile were finally defined.


    • A new metal body panels were handmade out of sheet iron according to the glass-fibre plastic shapes, which were taken down from the model.


    • The power structure has been recreated


    • At the same time, with decorating the gathered body with chrome elements and setting the optical devices, the original glass house was made.


    • The unique BMW 850 CSI interior with its ergonomic and equipment was modified for setting it in Volga V 12 and was finished with high quality leather and Karelian birch.

    This is the ultimate gangster-mobile. Nuff said. Nothing else, NOTHING, could be more gangster. End of subject.

    Five minutes ago I saw a completely restored white original GAZ21 here in Tbilisi. I am probably one of the few around here that actually sat in one (as a passenger) but it really is a whallowing lump of a car

    It's really a beautiful car, and like you said before: it's the ultimate gangster car...
