In the first half of 90-ies of the engineers from Togliatti machine-building company had developed the idea of a premium car, in the back of a limo. The basis for the realization of the idea in life was to become a VAZ-21099.
Everything new is well forgotten old, and decided to prove the developers Studio automotive design “Master design” from Togliatti (Samara oblast) under the guidance of the company Fintrast. The basis was taken the body of the VAZ-21099, which increased to 500 mm, and the new project was given the name “Lada-Amadeo-500”.
To bring the idea to life required two platforms the two choices VAZ-21099, one of which is the base, and the second serves as a donor. In turn, under the hood, it was decided to put the engine from VAZ-21083, and VAZ carburetor engineers were constructed separately.
As for the limousine, it was equipped with a TV, a refrigerator and a cordless telephone. The seats were covered with covers made of genuine leather, and the doorway is increased for a more comfortable fit in the car.
But this model was not supported in repetitive manufacturing. In all there were three instances of “Lada-Amadeo-500”, and the appearance of the cars “premium” class is fundamentally different from his brother – “Zhiguli” of 99-th model.
