This is the first (and, in fact, the last) serial front-wheel drive car of the Lenin Komsomol Automobile Plant, which in the mid-eighties initially even competed with the super popular Togliatti representatives of the “eighth” family. But what if you compare this car with the legendary German “weaving” – Audi 100 with index C2? Yes, this car was produced a decade earlier than the “forty-first” entered the Soviet roads, but it will be more interesting to compare the front-wheel drive from Audi 40 years ago with its younger Soviet counterpart.
