Lada Cosworth Duratec project – Soviet Street Sleeper.
Who would sink £20k+ on building a 240bhp hell raising Russian Sleeper Lada with fast Ford Cosworth Duratec underpinnings? Retro Dave, from www.retroford.co.uk that’s who. Jonny has been wanting to drive this car for several years and, after hosting it at several of our Late Brake Show On Tour events, the time came. It was a bit slippery.
Thanks for stopping by The Late Brake Show.
Russian cars like the Lada (or Vaz 2101) were sold in the UK duringthe 1970s, 80s and 90s. They were always cheap, often mocked (unfairly in some cases) and rarely cherished. This right-hand-drive UK model has seen a total restoration and restomod drivetrain swap in order to create a clean, humble looking driving machine that can keep with many modern day sports cars.
