Soviet LSR


Soviet LSR, originally uploaded by Xyling.
Even behind the Iron Curtain, land speed records were being sought in the 1950's. Inspired by photos of the un-tested six wheel Mercedes T80, this pudgy, optimistic Zil ZL-2 managed to break more parts than records, finally retiring after the W18 engine seized on a freezing October test run in 1956.
