i have rallied 3 lada rivas and they are literally bomb proof,

1 was a 1.3 standard engined one with a few bits

2 was the 1.5 again standard engine but with lots of mkII escort bits on

3 was a fitted with a lotus twin cam which was quite entertaining, had lightened doors etc on it all were really good.

we tend to do night rallies wit ha mixture of forest and tarmac.

the most we ever gave for one was the N plate 8,000 miles from new riva costing a total of £80 with tax and MOT. :)

Quote from: MikeLMR
as for unusual Ladas ... how about the revolution roadster. Not a rotary though


But this Lada Revolution Roadster IS powered by a Lada Rotary engine!!!!!...

If you watch it to the end you will see the car being driven up and down a Russian Dual-Carriageway. I think the wankel may have been retro fitted though, it seems to belong to a company who are in to rotaries. Another video from them on You Tube shows their stand at a car show with a couple of FD\'s on display.

I know only. that the last version of Lada Rotary was making 140 hp, not 190 as mentioned on previos post.
Lada is into Rotary\'s for years now, but looks like them copy much from Mazda and this is probably the reason, them never make it avaliable for public. Russians are not chinese, so them copy but them ask before them sell something.

This is right, KGB was using Rotary\'s in there cars. Russian university did teached the engine engeneers for Rotary like to my father back in 1970.

by the way, if you need something translated, let me know.

They actually copied NSU-rotaries before going Mazda... Mainly for Eastern Germany (Trabant/Wartburg...) they developed NSU-copies, also used by Lada in Russia. Later they started to copy Mazda, so if you have good connections you might be able to get some 13B housings "Made in Russia" :D

Just found this. Some of you might know that I have been tracking down rotary Lada from russia. Also I have been doing lots of research. I have a Lada enthusiast friend who has contact in russia. He said that all of them are basically gone, cause it was "illegal for civilians" to own them.

First, that wtcc Lada 110 is basically Opel. They was going to put rotary in it...

But russians stopped rotary research and production 2002...

Then, there is some info about some of them:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
21018 (1978) — first series rotary engine modification for Soviet police & KGB with one-rotor 70 hp (52 kW; 71 PS) VAZ-311 Wankel engine with electronic ignition and twin-electrode sparking plugs.[26] It also featured a downdraft carburettor, with different jet sizes to the 2101, and two-stage aircleaner.[27] Presented to the public by 1982. Only 250 built.[28] Engine durability was an issue, wearing out at just 20,000 km (12,000 mi).

Lada 21059 - Debut 1980 as a small scale spetsmodifikatsiya for the traffic police, the Interior Ministry and the KGB with 120 hp (89 kW; 120 PS) 186 N·m (137 ft·lbf) two-rotor 1,300 cc (80 cu in) VAZ-411M or (slightly larger displacement) 140 hp (100 kW; 140 PS) VAZ-4132 Wankel engine (which both featured a 9.4:1 compression ratio) and four-speed manual transmission. Capable of 112 mph (180 km/h) and 0–60 mph (0–97 km/h) in nine seconds. Priced at 52,000 rubles.

 Lada 21079 Debut 1982, fitted with 120 hp (89 kW; 120 PS) two-rotor 1,300 cc (80 cu in) VAZ-411M or (slightly larger displacement) 140 hp (100 kW; 140 PS) VAZ-4132 Wankel engine (which both featured a 9.4:1 compression ratio) and five-speed manual transmission. Capable of 112 mph (180 km/h) and 0–60 mph (0–97 km/h) in nine seconds. Priced at 58,000 rubles. Originally created for the needs of federal agencies: the traffic police, the Interior Ministry and KGB.

Small numbers of Lada rally cars were built with 150 hp (110 kW; 150 PS) Wankel engines, fitted with a pair of Weber DCOE twin-choke carburettors.

He is that link: http://cp_www.tripod.com/rotary/pg07.htm Here is another interesting link: http://www.autosoviet.altervista.org/main-english.htm

Seems that I might be able to get engine, but seems like impossible to get full car or papers/vin...
However, if I get that engine, is some one willing to buy it? Cause I dont need it ;)

Cheers

Power is nothing without control. Weight is enemy of performance, handling and braking.
