Tuning ZIM GAZ-12 is sometimes very interesting. One of the most interesting projects was completed at the Retro AMI studio in Moscow and is now being sold for $ 400,000.
In appearance, this ZIM is fully consistent with the original and differs only in mirrors and chrome wheels. Although the entire technical “filling” of the car is modern – from the Lexus LX570. The GAZ-12 body was put on the frame of the SUV with some problems – it had to be extended by 35 cm and expanded by 14 cm.
Inside, the front panel and leather seats of the first row with electric drive migrated to the Lexus LX570, but the rear seats are special – with electric, ventilation, massage and extendable rollers for the legs. Installed and a pair of monitors.
Under the hood is a 5.7-liter 367-horsepower Lexus V8, paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. The SUV has also become a donor to four-wheel drive transmission and a number of modern electronic systems such as marking control technology.
