Volga 21 RCM: This one’s based on a BMW M3!

I’m sure most of you remember the customized Volga Coupe and Cabrios based on the BMW 850i and 650Ci Cabriolet respectively. Turns out though that the Russian love affair between Volga’s and BMW’s has been running on quite a few years as this customized Volga 21 RCM proves. Manufactured in 1997 by El Motors, the retro-fashioned 21 CPM is based on a 1994 E36 BMW M3 powered by the first gen 286Hp strong 6-cylinder 3.2. I don’t know about you but it would really make me feel better if I knew that the donor car was messed up to the point of no return… -Continued: Click “Read More…” below to see more pictures & specs
