"Aero" tuning in Russia

Look what I've found...



All wheels covered, "zero" ground clearance, just that rear spoiler is messing up the view... I'm curious about the FE numbers for that Punto

Darn cool! Only thing missing is "Mister Fusion".

As far as overwrought BOMEX clad cars go, that's one of the best I've seen.

google russian dash cam video. From the way they drive I would assume they have bigger problems to worry about than laws regarding car modification.

I watched those educational videos of how to avoid accidents for more than 4 hours one day, I think there was a pattern

Tomorrow I will be under 60 miles from Russian border, from where I live it is only 5 hours trip to Russia you know
