"Not the most ideal, but also not the worst": The obzorshchik told about history of creation of VAZ-2101


The popular blogger arranged test drive of legendary "Kopek" and told about with what difficulties it was created. Obzorshchik from Absurd Drive channel decided to remember

history of creation of VAZ-2101 and to explain why it became such popular. Initially AvtoVAZ thought as a peculiar answer to Moskvich which was updated only externally, remaining real "bucket" inside. In 1966 it was decided to buy the plant on credit in order that then the car could be brought to export.

Was created by VAZ-2101 on practices of the Italian company Fiat, and was initially planned that it will be able to get success in Europe as cheaper copy of "Italian". Thus at first "Kopek" could receive at all Renault 16 outlines as this car was rather trouble-free and broke very seldom and it had a front drive.

However on credit bought after all the rights for Fiat as the Italian brand, having learned that it wins against Renault the tender, significantly lowered an interest rate, and thus achieved success. At the same time, according to an obzorshchik, to engineers AvtoVAZ from such purchase it was not joyful at all as as it appeared, that glorified Fiat was not so good.

"It collapsed in the eyes, and our engineers had to correct everything. And as a result - we received our Kopek. Not the most ideal, but also not the worst car", - on an optimistic note the blogger finished the review.
