BBC News – Goodbye Lada Classic – hello XRAY

leave a comment »

The last Lada Classic rolled off the production line in Russia earlier this week after 40 years of production.

But Russian carmaker AvtoVaz, which owns Lada, has just launched a new concept car which it hopes will also capture the hearts of drivers.

It was designed by a leading British car designer, Steve Mattin. He worked at Mercedes Benz, and was the Design Director at Volvo, but agreed to move to Lada last year.

Our Moscow Correspondent Daniel Sandford has been to see Steve Mattin and his XRAY Concept car, to ask why he gave up a good job at Volvo for AvtoVaz.
