New Car For The Top Echelon

Posted on January 4, 2012 by

This is what a car for the top echelon government may look like in the nearest future. Its design was developed by Svyatoslav Saakyan and his art studio that specializes in design, including automobile exterior and interior design. This model is of most interest because it is based on the Russian ZIL chassis.

    Is this something they’ve been working on for 12 years? A render? “The nearest future”, as mentioned above, will then be year 2030. Plus the rear lamps remind me Lada 2105.

  2. Dickey Splurge says:

    Looks so good, I want to shove my a** up sideways!

  3. CZenda says:

    Incredibly ugly.

    • asdfg says:

      Usually I respect your opinion but this one reeks of otherwise understandable Czech russophobia.

      • cokoll says:

        I’m russian and i too think it is inceadibly, no INCREADIBLY ugly. Moreover, there are just ugly designs, but this one looks silly as well

  4. Mria says:

    So what can YOUR country afford Tommy?


  5. Zonda says:

    With this design the car will have maybe success in Russia and other ex-CCCP countries, but for sure not in west!

  6. Peter says:

    They did not waist any time in the windtunel ;)

  7. six-string samurai says:

    aside from being ugly, the designer probably did not consider wind noise or, obviously, aerodynamics

  8. Apu Gupta says:

    is that design final? it’s… meh!

    the rear lights doesn’t really match well

  9. BlowME says:

    absolutely UGLY…

  10. scart says:

    it takes years to render such thing on russian’s computers!

  11. Richard says:

    It captures the death locomotive look that was popular in the latest of movies depicting the USSR or Russia as the Dark Evil relentless Villin. As another said, the wind tunnel must not have been used in designing the aerodynamics of the body. It looks a cross between Bentley and the 60’s Lincoln’s

  12. Matt says:

    Pretty ugly… the designer should find a new job

  13. supplyme says:

    Woah, that thing is super UGLY. I think the old ZILs looked much much better: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-ajOjSXWZUwg/TV1V9L1aDbI/AAAAAAAAAEY/Np18Tpz_mXQ/s1600/zil_41047.jpg

  14. Tovarich_Volk says:

    It would look better if it was a modernised and more aerodynamic version of the early 40’s style ZIL or ZIS.

  15. Emperor Norton says:

    Looks like something a Mafioso would drive and not a government official.

  16. six-string samurai says:

    you can stuff a V12 under the hood and 6 dead hookers in the trunk, which makes the car very practical!

  17. Otis R. Needleman says:

    Underwhelming. Reminds me of a Lincoln Continental of forty years ago.

  18. sabot says:

    Reminds me of LEGO. Or the SUX 4000 from robocop.

  19. (r)evolutionist says:

    The more expensive and complex a government auto is, the more detached the government is from it’s citizens. Elitism.

  20. iii says:

    Whats the big boot for? Hiding bodies or bodyguards? :D

  21. George Johnson says:

    Sorry, ugly.

    The lines are too sharp, too harsh on the eye. They should smooth and graceful. This is just a bunch of square boxes and rectangles. Nothing “smooth” or “graceful” about it.

  22. rostit says:

    is this a new video game car?

  23. Johnny says:

    Nobody notices how similar this is to the Rolls-Royce Phantom? Tell Mr Svetoslav to be original not a copycat!

  24. biteme says:

    It might as well be a tracked vehicle.


  25. Papalardo, Marco Antonio says:

    Esta Limousine que aparece nas fotos, é só para os Orgão Governamentais Russod, ou tambem será para Exportações á outros Paises, principalmente da América do Sul-(no Caso, Brasil)-?

  26. Boobman says:


  27. zero says:

    I like it ! russian style—- simple, thick, kinglike, pratical

  28. YOYO says:

    Actually I think it looks really cool, I wouldn’t buy it to go to work but as a representative vehicle I think it’s awesome.

  29. Yegor says:

    Its trunk seems too long to me.

  30. saladin says:

    it’s realy a wonderful car with good design and beautiful line with hig class. Congratulations!!!

  31. Muzzlehatch says:

    Since there’s no back window the rear deck should just slope down from the roof to the tailights.
