Classic Soviet Cars: GAZ-13 Chaika
Here come the Men In Black....no not those ones, it’s the real life KGB boys in this fantastic GAZ-13. The big, luxurious V8 195hp Chaika outgunned the mighty GAZ Volga in terms of power (although 0-60 in those days was still 20 seconds). These large cars were ideal for the secret police to cruise around in - with plenty of room to drag in those pesky dissenters.
1:43 scale die-cast model. Of all the Soviet cars, this Chaika ('Gull') is the one that looks most like it has driven straight out of 1950's America. Production started in 1960 and ran until 1981, although less than 4,000 were ever made!
Get your hands on this fantastic die-cast model (in black, with silver trim, of course). 1:43 scale with authentic Russian magazine (you won't be able to spot the agents in there - they're very good).
