The team at Lada were pleased to have Russian Prime Minister and judo master Vladimir Putin on hand to test out their new budget model Granta sedan. Think of all the cameras! Unfortunately, the car wouldn't start.

As you can see in the video, it took Putin roughly six attempts to even get the new compact car started. At least you know it's a genuine Lada.


The Prime Minster was later heard to say that, despite the car's crappy debut, the large trunk would easily hold three enemies of the state "hint, hint."
