LADA 2105 T16 VFTS

Some foreign sources refer the appearance of the engine of this car to 1981, which seems doubtful. The first documented appearance of this engine is on rally «UNION-1985»-and this is where the history of this engine was ended. «I remember when we built the first Lada with turbocompressor. The car was constantly towing with driving wheels, but the engine was unstable and fell apart on the first special stage of the rally. But it was enough to understand that it can make even very fast turns with a controlled skid of the rear axle. Stasys Brundza «Golden routes»
