Lada on Lada Crash in Russia [Video]
Originally, Lada was only the export badge for cars made by AvtoVAZ. IN Russian, the name means ‘ship’ and the badge on the cars are symbolic of a Viking ship sailing away, which is fitting considering they steer and brake like they are on water.
In a strange sort of way, these two Lada Rivas look kind of cool, one even having tinted windows. And since they are made of thick steel sheetmetal, they don’t bend much in accidents, which is good for the repair bill and bad for the driver’s safety. It’s not that farfetched to say the whole accident cost about $100 in damage.
