Sometimes this leads to rather controversial, but in General, these limitations contribute to the kind of positive conservatism, allowing to maintain the style and visibility of cars Gorky brand.
At the Moscow motor show MlMS in the summer of 2004 exhibited another model of the “Volga”, the appearance of which was developed by the Moscow design Studio Cardi by order of the Gorky automobile plant. The basis for the Executive car was “Volga” GAZ-3102.
The car has new lighting, hood, fenders, trunk lid and outer door panels — all this completely changed the look of the “Volga”, made it more modern, and some “generic” features of the GAZ-24 does not spoil the design of the new model.
