Russians created a design hypothesis of future Volga

Two Russian designers have created virtually the successor of the Volga.

The model is created by the brothers Bukin, two Russian designers who worked on other models GAS.

For now, this is just a proposal to design a future model GAZ, the Russian had no immediate intention to develop a production version of this concept, codenamed GL 5000.

For added resonance in the public mind, the two designers have used the name Volga.

In the version designed by the two brothers, GAS 5000 GL is equipped with a 3.2-liter engine that develops 296 hp, coupled to a six-speed manual transmission.

The motor engages all four wheels via a wheel drive system. Besides promising performance that announces this model, practical issues have not been forgotten, GAS GL 5000 has a five-door configuration, which allows opening of the fifth door a hatcback, and also in conventional mode as sedan.

This configuration is already on the Skoda Superb and BMW 5 Series GT.

It seems that there is an opportunity to get this model sometime in production, but the version which will be available on the market will not have too many elements in common with the model of the two images.

Most likely, Russia will abandon the all-wheel drive system and the modern design in favor of a classical approach and cheap, or will adapt as much as possible items made by the two designers, necessary to the production model and strict safety regulations and environment that need to comply as any car launched in the European Union.
