Funilly, the Lada Niva actually has more horsepower per liter than the original Dodge Viper had. This car has 51 hp per liter, the original Viper had 50.

It looks like a lifted hatchback, or a jacked up clown car. Mud bogging and off roading are popular in Georgia, if you show up in one of these and park it next to mud boggers' Jeep CJ and Wranglers, 4X4 pick-ups, Ford Broncos, Dodge Ram Chargers, and Chevrolet K15 Blazers, you'd just get laughed at. LOL =D

It is not built for track days - that's for sure. Unless, the track is some offroad course.

These cars are, apparently, held in high esteem nowadays - considered to be the best of Soviet automobiles.

My dad used to have two... One was brand new but started disintegrating after just couple of years of useage.

If that's the best of Soviet auto industry, imagine the worst...

I doubt there will be any, it's absolutely not suitable for a racetrack. Try to set a laptime in a Niva and you'll roll over. Let there be a picture at least...

Please add car pages only if you can add laptimes, or if you think there will be laptimes for that car some time in future.
