Lada Tarzan: Russian Lada All Road Car from 1990s

Posted on November 5, 2015 by tim

In the 1990s, after the USSR had already collapsed and while the new Russian state was just forming, there were some great projects popping up from old Soviet industrial giants which had been privatized. Some of them were only produced in limited quantities and here is the one such “miracle car” – LADA TARZAN – a Russian take on combining an SUV base with a regular passenger car.

Most people seeing such cars on the streets think they are hand made and modified to look like this, however they are factory made cars. They were released in limited quantities and are still available for sale.

Basically, this LADA consists of two different LADA cars – the famous Soviet 4X4 SUV “NIVA” and another popular Soviet car, the VAZ-2109.

NIVA provides all of the suspension, the engine, the transmission, etc. The 2109 LADA provides the body and interior components.

According to the owners, the car looks good and stands out from the rest of the Russian LADA cars.

It’s good off road and in city.

There were only 300 such cars produced.

Some had four doors – some were “coupes” with just two doors.

Do you like the look?
