Žiga express – The golden cab
The iconic vehicles of Eastern Europe on your desk!
In 1970, the first Lada 1200 aka the VAZ 2101 came off the assembly line in the city of Tolyatti in the USSR, and instantly changed the streetscape of the Eastern Bloc. Just like most socialist vehicles, the Lada 1200 also took its time to arrive: in Hungary, the first owners could take their new Lada 1200 for the first ride in June 1971. The iconic four-wheeled vehicle became popular as the Zhiguli in Hungary, and thanks to its reliability, practicability and comfort, it soon became the preferred vehicle of cabdrivers on the busy roads of Budapest.
