Volga V8 Roadster

Volga V8 Roadster

Volga is known mostly for small Soviet-era sedans used by the KGB and as limos for the communist party central committee members - a little less so for customized German luxury cars. But in a revolution against Western propaganda, the Russian automaker has unveiled its second coachbuilt BMW.

The Volga V8 roadster starts life as a BMW 650i cabriolet before being treated to custom body panels to give the car 60s retro styling in tribute to the (charismatically-named) Volga GA3-21P. Aside from the bodywork, the cars mechanicals seem to carry over from the stock BMW, which is probably a smart move.

The V8 Roadster follows the path of the V12 Coupe, based on the BMW 850 CSi, which was built in 2001 as a throwback to the Volga GA3-219 (with a 9, the roadster has a P).

The 850 CSI had a navigation system? Anyway, I love how they didn't even touch the interior.

nice cyrillic error. it is not GA3, but GAZ, the 3 stands for Z in cyrillic writing...

It's true the 850 CSi didn't have a nav-system. But this roadster version is based on the new 650i cabriolet
