This is the first Soviet aerodynamic car, designed by Moscow engineer Aleksei Osipovich NIKITIN (1903-1974).
Standard chassis of GAZ-A received advanced aerodynamic body with wooden frame covered by metal sheets. The car had more powerful engine thanks to aluminium head and increased compression ratio.
