Soviet sports cars, auto rarities of USSR


Soviet sports cars - Moskvich-CA

In Soviet times, all the athletes were either students or police, or military. It so happened that the sport serious occupation, and even more so - the permanent place of work was not considered. A unearned income was severely. And the article was appropriate - "For parasitism" was called. And it is not administrative, and criminal. Yes, there was a time when what is now considered "prestigious" previously considered "sabotage", and even criminal.

And yet, free thought has been let within a well-drawn vector. No thought of flight design work is impossible, especially if the idea starts to fly from the bottom - not relying even on a production car.

Incredibly, one of the first sports car designed for racing is not a straight line and to ring Tracy, was built in the organization, where for hundreds of years it was "parallel" and "perpendicular" - the troops. To be more precise - at the Research Institute of the Ministry of Defence vehicles in Bronnitsy.

"Moskvich-CA", built in duplicate, was not entirely successful. The first was the unsuccessful car body, assembled on the basis of longitudinal design was too heavy. The total mass of the car was 800 pounds, and boosted to 55 hp at 4800 rev / min engine model "407" clocked "CA" only up to 130 km / h.

And yet, "Moskvich-SA" - a unique car, which became a breakthrough in sports car structure. After all, he was the first fireball, built on units of "Moskvich-407"!

On cars "Moskvich-CA" scored three wins at the stages of the USSR championships, won one gold (K. Galygin, 1961), three silver (Galkin and N. Klimanov, 1957 N. Klimanov and Zhukov, 1958; K . Galygin and Korotayev, 1959) and two bronze (B. and T. Revyakin Nigmatullin, 1958 K. Galygin, 1960) medals of the USSR championships.
