ZiL-114. Leonid Brezhnev’s personal car

The ZiL-114 is a limousine from the Soviet car manufacturer ZiL introduced in 1970 to replace the ZiL-111 series which was gradually becoming out of date. In almost all respects, the ZiL-114 improved on the 111A and 111D models. The engine, a ZiL-built pushrod V8, was increased in capacity from 5,980 cc to 6,959 cc, resulting in an increase of power by 30 percent. Transmission was two-speed automatic, with hydraulic torque converter. A three-speed gearbox was offered beginning in April 1975.
