1967-1976 MOSKVICH 400 specifications Classic and Performance Car

During the early-‘70s, the Moskvich 412 was sold in the UK, marketed as a high-value alternative to conventional saloon rivals. And given that it boasted a list price marginally higher than a Mini, you could see where the importers were coming from. But sadly, the low price still wasn’t enough to off-set the rough engines, stody handling and poor fuel consumption. The Moskvich soon picked up a poor reputation, and struggled desperately before the plug was pulled. Replaced by the Lada 1200, which was an infinitely better product – and that says it all.
