Moskvich 412 in London To Mexico Rally, 1970I’ve already ranted about the Soviet performance in the 1970 London-Mexico Rally, but we can’t possibly have enough Moskvitch 412 worship! English Russia has come through once again.
By all accounts, the Moskvitch 412 was cruder than Khrushchev’s vodka-fueled descriptions of hog-breeding techniques, but who cares? Bronze medal and three top-20 finishes in a 16,000-mile rally!

    The 412 also made glorious combat against bourgeois, capitalist English touring cars.
