    The New КАЛАШНИКОВ [Kalashnikov]

    https://www.yahoo.com/news/move-over...162854131.html






    Moscow (AFP) - Russian arms maker Kalashnikov on Thursday presented its new electric car inspired by a rare 1970s model, saying the new technology will rival Elon Musk's Tesla.

    The brand, best known for the AK-47 machine gun, presented the decidedly retro-looking pale blue prototype, the CV-1, at a defense expo outside Moscow.

    The look was inspired by a Soviet hatchback model developed in the 1970s called "Izh-Kombi," a statement on the Kalashnikov website said.

    Holding company Kalashnikov Concern said it has developed some cutting-edge elements for the "electric supercar", including a "revolutionary" inverter. The vehicle can travel 350 kilometres on one charge.

    "We are developing our own concept of an electric supercar, which is based on several original systems developed by the concern," the firm said.

    "This technology will let us stand in the ranks of global electric car producers such as Tesla and be their competitor," RIA-Novosti further quoted the Kalashnikov press-service as saying.

    "We were inspired by the experience of global market leaders in developing our concept."

    Kalashnikov Concern has long been trying to expand its brand, recently launching lines of clothing and other civilian merchandise ranging from umbrellas to mobile phone covers.

    Its foray into electric vehicles however was met with mixed reactions from Russians. Comments to the news on the company's official Facebook page ranged from "cyberpunk" to "Izh-Zombie".

    "Your tanks are great, but it would be better if you stayed away from cars," one user wrote.

    Earlier this week, online users ridiculed Kalashnikov's new bipedal combat robot. The golden-colour machine, reportedly named "Igorek" in production stages, immediately became a subject of social media memes.

    "Somebody had watched too much 'Robocop'," tweeted user happy__keanu, referring to the 1987 action film about a cyborg law enforcer.

      Stopped reading at "machine gun"

      That awkward moment when sporting rifles are assault rifles and assault rifles are machine guns.....



      It's all the same, we're all ashamed of our children who can't read between the lies of their textbooks
      This world must bear witness to a revolution every now and then
      We clutched our quills to scribe the bills of this great nation
      Now show me you can hold a fucking pen

            Something tells me it will not have the reliability of the AK-47.

                Classic retro-Soviet throwback styling. In powder blue, no less.

                But look, they also make umbrellas and cell phone covers.

                  Waiting for that Russian guy to post saying he's selling his Mustang and buy one of those beauties. He'd look more in place behind the wheel of that street burner and head turner.

                      You know, I was thinking that the other day and was going to start a thread about it but got sidetracked and forgot about it. Hope he's ok, he's the good Crazy Ivan on this forum.
