The Place Where Cars For Country Leaders Were Made

Posted on October 30, 2013 by team

We are about to visit the shop where they make executive class cars, and we are going to do it illegally. It’s one of the shops of the factory named after I. A. Likhachev. In some areas it looks abandoned nevertheless it still works and remains under guard.

This shop was built in the 30s, probably during the second reconstruction of the factory.

There was time when even authorities were not allowed to enter the shop freely. They were required to have a special pass from KGB.

    Wow! As a lifetime auto enthusiast it is fascinating to see this behind the scenes look at the cars and production equipment. It amazes me that even post WWII they still used techniques devised at the turn of the century. This article makes me want to knock on the door and make an offer to purchase the unfinished vehicles and molds.

    Why don’t you have photos of Russian and Ukrainian beauty pageants anymore? Have the puritanical Net Nannies cowed you into stopping this?

    As a former autobody man, I’m impressed with the downdraft paint booth. Also, don’t run down the lack of technology used in this factory, most exotic cars today are still built in this same manner!
