Marussia: What Remains Of The Little Russian Supercar That Couldn’t

Do You Remember The Marussia Russian Supercar?

It really is a shame too. But I guess the cars are better off since Russians only seem to crash the really nice cars.

After a brief seven years in production, Marussia packed in their brand. The mid-engine supercar was built with a moderately powerful Cosworth V6 with up to 420 horsepower.  The price tag on such an exotic entry-level supercar was a mere $115,000!

What’s left of the automaker? Not much. Vandals have been at the compound where the remaining cars have been left to rot. I would tend to believe they aren’t completed cars, just shells, but still a mild tragedy for a beautiful specimen.  Parts have been stripped off, but without many on the road, I’m not exactly sure what good the parts will do.

Marussia had a short foray into the world of F1 racing too, and even that packed up shop last year. All the employees took positions at a government technical facility, which is a far cry from making supercars.

What cars are we left with from Russia now? Lada?

I have been wrecking cars for as long as I've been driving them, but I keep coming back for more. Two wheels or four, I'm all in. I founded GearHeads.org and then built and ran AutoWise.com until selling it to Lola Digital Media in 2020. I look forward to watching AutoWise grow as part of the AllGear group.
