If you were born in Eastern Europe, chances are high political leaders in your country used the GAZ Chaika 13 as a parade vehicle before 1989. This beauty was used by Soviet ambassadors and the KGB, as well, and even Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev offered a Chaika to Cuban revolutionary Fidel Castro. It was a full-size luxury car available in several different body styles, including a convertible and a sedan. Originally, the name ‘Chaika’ means ‘gull’ and it was produced in Gorky between 1959 and 81. Some of its main attractions are the huge amount of chrome in the front (so typically Russian!) and the spacious interior – it can carry up to 7 passengers. It has a 5.5 liter 8-cylinder engine and can reach a top speed of 99 mph (160 km/h). This vehicle is still highly popular and desired among collectors.
