A week ago, we offered to remember the cheapest car in your life - no matter how much it costs: a few thousand or a couple of million rubles. And at the same time they asked about the most expensive: Mercedes, Bentley, Soviet "Seagull" or something more valuable. The most interesting and contrasting comments are collected here.
From "Zaporozhets" to Mercedes
The cheapest car is the 1979 ZAZ-968 M, received from his father for free, in 1995. The most expensive is the Mercedes Benz GLE 300 in a relatively average configuration. I took a new one from the salon in 2016, for 4,720,000 rubles. I still go, I dashed off only 50 thousand, I do not plan to change at all.
From the barn to the Vanguard
The cheapest is the VAZ-2104 (34,000 rubles). The most expensive is a Mercedes-Benz W210 with a 4.3 engine - 279 hp. in the Avangard configuration (450,000 rubles).
From blue to saffron milk
The first and cheapest was the blue VAZ-2111, "eight-valve"! She was in a state close to the factory! I bought it from a friend for only 45 thousand! He sold so cheaply as unnecessary) At the moment, the most expensive car I have is a Ford Focus II (2006 dorestyle with Ghia trim level). Red rocket with a reliable 1.6 liter. 115 hp! I bought it for 250 thousand! As the saying goes, “I wipe the steering wheel with one hand - with the other I wipe the tears of happiness”
From Oka to Tuareg
The cheapest is the 2001 Oka. I got it from my father, and he, in turn, bought it for 20,000 rubles, I still remember her with warmth and a smile (by the way, she still drives). The most expensive is VW Touareg 2 (NF).
From van to wicked pickup
The first cheap was a 2006 VW Caravelle. I don't remember how much I bought it for. The most expensive in my garage right now is the Ford F150. It costs 9,000,000 rubles, and also body kits somewhere on the lam - a total of 10 lamas. I am 68 years old and this is my dream.
From Skod to G-Class
Cheap - Skoda Octavia 2010, 89 hp For about 400,000 mowers. And dear - my joy, which my brother gave: Gelik AMG V8, 639 hp. Over 20 million. More expensive than Vlad A4.
From Kalina to Porsche
Cheap - Lada Kalina - my first car. Expensive - Porsche 911 4S 992.
From "two" to the Phantom
The cheapest was the 1976 VAZ-2102, if I am not mistaken, of the year. We bought it with friends for $ 120, since at the beginning of the 2000s it was not accepted to count in rubles, and the amount in those days was not as funny as it is now. The most expensive car was probably the Rolls-Royce Phantom. Although there was a funny story with the Continental GT, which is cheaper, but it was on it that I managed to catch a piece of a retaining ring from some truck on the third transport into the tire. This is the most expensive punctured wheel in my life.
"Penny" for a penny
The cheapest car in my life was - and will remain - a VAZ-2101, which I bought for three bigteasties and a latte in a Mac.
From G8 to cargo donuts
The cheapest car is a VAZ-2108, given to me by my grandfather on my 20th birthday. Holes in the floor, thresholds and peeling paint. I rode around the yards for a week and sold it to a neighbor for 15,000 rubles, who had previously rubbed it to a tree. The most expensive car is a four-axle Volvo dump truck, which merrily skidded on a large snow-covered area. The truck cost 9 million. Having learned the cost of the car, the drift immediately stopped.
From "six" to "spirit of ecstasy"
Perhaps the cheapest - this is my first (and therefore my favorite, naturally) car, which I inherited from my dad - a VAZ-2106 with a simple 1.3-liter engine and a four-stage "mechanics". For an 18-year-old, it was practically a Mercedes. And the dearest - thanks to my work - is the new Rolls-Royce Phantom. In St. Petersburg we organized an event to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the "flying lady" - the symbol and at the same time the brand badge of the Rolls. It was a private event for selected guests, and there was an opportunity not only to sit in new cars (there were Phantom and Wraith to choose from), but also to take a test drive on the summer streets of St. Petersburg. One of the most magical memories of these awesome cars!
From "penny" to car sharing
The cheapest is the 1980 VAZ-2101, bought for 20,000 rubles in 2007. The most expensive is Range Rover Velar Yandex.Drive.
From "economy" to "economy"
The cheapest is the 1998 VAZ-2105 for 38,000 rubles. The most expensive is the 2018 Renault Logan for 690,000 rubles.
From "W" to "W"
The cheapest is "shaha".There was also a Moskvich-408, but this is already a rarity. And the most expensive one is SkodKodiaq.
From ZAZ to "Silver Ghost"
As a child, at the age of seven, my uncle put him on his knees and gave a ZAZ-968 A to steer the Zaporozhets - in the literal sense of the word, I did not reach the pedals. Many years later in the United States, as an exchange student, he worked at a car wash. Was at the post of cleaning the cabin with a vacuum cleaner. After that it was necessary to advance the car to the next point. So, the coolest thing that I have seen in my life and drove behind the wheel (albeit 10 meters) is a classic Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost in cream color with snow-white sheepskin rugs. So many years have passed, but these two moments are firmly engraved in my memory.
From May Hart: from VAZ-2106 to Sorento Prime
My cheapest car is vaz 2106 and it was my very first car. And the most expensive car was the KiSorento Prime (which I now have) of course there were many different cars, but the most favorite was Nissan Serena.
From Free C-Class to Turbo Soul
My most expensive car is a Mercedes Benz C 220 4Matic Kompressor. It cost about 3.4 million in 2009. But there was only one amusing thing: in 2009, I put one very tricky and cool equipment at the plant for one person for work. It still works. But the crisis severely crippled that guy's position, and, so as not to let him down, he gives me this "Mercedes" in a very fat configuration, which costs exactly the same amount I used to supply him with the equipment. Therefore, we can say that this is the cheapest car, costing 0 rubles.
But the most expensive one (I bought it 10 years ago after winding the gelding on a pole) - Audi A5 Sportback RS - 2.0 TFSI quattro and another turbine - now I have not 180 "moose", but all 200! It cost about 2.1 million and was my best car. But one more thing can be said. My most expensive project is worth 2.5 million - KiSoul 2019 on a "turbo", a new body kit + new exhaust + new brakes + suspension + a reinforced 2-liter engine + a turbine, which the 1.5 million car did not have. Now she has not 150 horses, but 180! This hot Soul rides no worse than the Soul GT. So that's it.
"Gazelle". And the point
I have the simplest car and the most expensive - the same one. I bought a GAZelle for 130,000 rubles. It seems to be cheap, but it was withdrawn from me a month later, because the scammers faked the sale and purchase, and the owner of the car did not know about it. Although I terminated the KP contract through the court after the seizure, the money has not yet been returned. It turns out that I rented a car for 160,000 a month (purchase + managed to invest 30,000 rubles in it).
