ZiL-117 from 1974. Mosfilm studio museum: took part in the movies “Gray Wolves”, “Townspeople” and “Galina”

The ZiL-117 is a luxury sedan built by ZiL in USSR and first presented at the Autoprom (precursor of the Moscow International Motor Show) in 1977. Debuting in 1971, it was derived from the earlier ZiL-114.

One of the reasons to design the ZiL-117 was a need of a government car of an intermediate rank between ZiL-114 (reserved for highest state and party authorities) and GAZ-13, appropriate for example for Politburo member candidates, and also as supporting cars in highest officials’ convoys.
