A parking lot with abandoned cars from the 1980s was discovered in Sofia, including several home-made Sofia-B sports cars. Photos were posted on Instagram by user abandoned_cars_bg.
Both sports cars are in poor condition. The fiberglass body panels are peeling, moss has grown in the cracks, but outwardly they are completely complete. And in salons that have suffered even more, a lot of details are missing.
- The author of unusual homemade products is the Bulgarian engineer Velizar Andreev. He began work on a sports car in 1979, and two years later the first prototype made its debut at the Plovdiv Fair. In 1986, at the same fair, the designer presented the final version of the Sofia-B two-door, built on a steel space frame.
- On track tests, a sports car with an engine from a VAZ-2101 was able to accelerate to 200 km / h, and the engineer's son Bodizar later won prizes in local races. The Vilicar company founded by Velizar managed to build 12 copies of the Sofia-B. After the death of the designer in 2001, his son started producing car parts.
