Have you heard about the Lada brand? If you have, then you are probably coming from Russia or Eastern-Europe. The cars of this brand were famous (and still are) for their durability, rigidness, tough handling and dynamics. We won't discuss the looks of the cars, just google them and make your own judgment. In 2012 we have seen that the company was revived and is now proudly part of Renault-Nissan alliance which is world's fourth-largest automobile manufacturer.
What we were longing to see was a special Lada concept and we are not talking about the X-Ray, but something taken to the extremes. Our wish was granted, since we have stumbled upon a very interesting project made by the designer Dmitry Lazarev.
We present you the Lada Raven supercar concept that has literally outlandish visuals! Just take a look at the huge "gaping" grilles at the front complemented by massive vents out the tail. You surely have noticed the enormous wheel arches and the incredibly aerodynamic design.
It definitely does not have in common anything with the previous models, except for the badge that signifies that this car is a Lada. And this is what we really like about it. Although there aren't any engineering data included, it seems that the design is more likely to be connected with a mid-engine.
What we hope is to see something more powerful than the engines included in the current Lada range. It is still under question whether this car will be actually built or will stay in a render form only. The rumors however hint to a positive outcome.
