V8 Moskvitch Sleeper Drifting Is Funny

While quite a lot of crappy cars in America get their fair share of sleeper treatment, things aren’t exactly the same when it comes to Russian automotive brands. For now, we’ll focus on Moskvitch. We’ve got a video that shows what happens when you hide a V8 engine under the hood of such a car.

The Moskvitch we’re talking about is part of the third wave of models - these cars were built between 1965 and 1986. To get an idea of how poor their performance was, we’ll tell you that their output ranged somewhere in between 35 and 45 HP.

Weel, we don’t know how much power the example we’ve got here has, but it does pack a naturally-aspirated engine with a capacity of 3.5 liters. Considering it’s a swap, the engine should be decent in terms of specific output.

The car keeps a clean appearance, as the only major exterior changes are the “shaved” bumpers. However, this particular Moskvitch can be found in Hungary. The clip below shows it performing a few pieces of burnout and drifting. Of course, a girl is riding shotgun.
