Black Russian V12: BMW-Powered Super Volga

As a cheaply made, Eastern bloc econo-wagon, Russia's old-school Volga, in stock trim, was about as hot as nude photo spread on the centarians of Brooklyn's Polar Bear club. But add a few mods, including the interior and drivetrain of a BMW 850, and bam, it's up against Milla Jovovich for World's Hottest Russian Model. [Thanks to Martin for the tip.] [Update: Charles reminds us that the Volga was featured in Car and Driver last year. We thought that sturdy, chrome mug looked familiar. And Jealousy sets us straight on supermodel and "Resident Evil" actress, Jovovitch's country of origin. She's actually from Kiev, Ukrane.]
