Weekend Edition – Slammed Lada VAZ 2109 Samara


Welcome to the Weekend Edition. This time, I’m penning my submissions from the tables of various Nordic airports, as I’m spending my weekend in Amsterdam and other Dutch places of note. This naturally means there will be Dutch DOTS stuff in the pipeline for y’all to enjoy.

Today’s theme is all about tuned Russian cars. First of all, I’m showing you this Bosozoku style VAZ 2109, also known as the Lada Samara.


The Samara is, if possible, even more slammed than the black 2107 I posted the other day. Samaras are some of the most worthless cars on the planet, so it’s interesting to see a tuned one with Plexiglas windows and bucket seats. “The later models of the LADA lost their mojo”, says Artem the builder.


The Samara runs on 14-inch Work wheels, practically straight out from an early-’70s Skyline. They look damned good. 195/40/R14 Conti Sport Contacts have been wrapped on the Works. The overfenders are custom GRP ones.


For the photoshoot over at rubnroll, the Samara ran without a hood. Most likely just to show the engine, which is a replaced and redone unit, with the velocity stacks proudly displayed on the front like Audi rings. The engine bay has been smoothed and detailed, as well. It looks like lots of useless crap has been removed.



What about that colour? BMW Laguna Seca blue, from the E46 M3’s colour chart. Nice.

    That's a cute Audi badge. EDIT: didn't read the article first… Antti beat me to the joke.

    You're in "Amsterdam and other Dutch places of note"? Can I, citizen of the Netherlands, ask which other places of note? And is there anything cool to do? Need a Peugeot 406 coupe (or mk2 Golf, or 97 Legacy wagon) for something Hooniverse worthy? My new job starts in the middle of March so I've got too much time on my hands…

      mk2 Golf and too much time on your hands? Have you seen what this man did with a dud Lada and too much time on his hands? Velocity stacks, man! Velocity Stacks!

    Until I read where it pointed out that those were velocity stacks where the grille normally goes, I thought that the car had a fancy set of "La Cucaracha" horns installed. It looks like there's still room though….

    This body style 2109 never came with DOHC and carburettor was behind the motor, not in front, so transplant it is.
    Original looks like this:

    Worthless indeed. And it's even a 5-door and thus has the accompanying "budget family car" baggage with it.
    I quite like this. I'm sick to the back teeth of "me too" modifying. But here, no complaints.
