Russian Rally Driver Is Also a Beautiful Model


Is she too good to be true?

Meet Inessa Tushkanova. She's a professional rally car driver and model. That combination alone could be a gearhead's perfect woman. Born in Ukraine in 1987, Tushkanova has been living in Moscow for several years now as her racing career takes off. This year she'll be competing in the Finnish Rally Championship in a Mitsubishi Evo IX for the PrintSport Racing team. But it's what's in her personal garage that has us falling for her even more by the minute; her taste in cars is fantastic.

She's the proud owner of a BMW M6 and X6M, a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo MR and Evo RS 8 MR, as well as a Subaru Impreza WRX STI sport wagon. She began racing back in 2008 and has managed to steadily work her way up. She won some local Russian rallies a couple years ago but that's simply not good enough for her. Inessa told Jalopnik that her goal is to become the world rally champion. Meanwhile she'll continue her modeling career with our blessing.
