This Is Some Russian Maniac's Idea Of A Miracle Hot Rod

Funny

We're sure stranger things have happened.

Consider this Russian craftsmanship at its finest. What may look like a debilitated VAZ crap-o-sedan to you is the pride and joy of someone else. Welcome to Russian hot rodding. Oh, where to begin? Well, the engine is a heavily modified (one way of putting it) 1.6-liter unit that’s been upped to 450 horsepower. How so? With a modified cylinder head and a couple of turbines, among other unknown mods. All of that power is routed through a four-speed gearbox. There’s so much wrong with this "hot rod" and yet it seems so right. Maybe because it’s Russian.
