A cult-classic Soviet supermini from the 1950's.

    The Tayga Migo isn't many things. It isn't fast, nor is it safe. However, what it is, is absolutely adorable. This one is in "484" configuration, meaning it has four wheels! That's one whole more wheel than the base model, the "464".

    Originally built with licensing from italian manufacturer Iskra, who made the original, the Migo was somewhat toughened up to handle Soviet roads and conditions. It's sturdier, a little taller, and had smaller engine options. It also featured a manually lockable differential to help it grip loose surfaces better, if necessary. The Migo is equipped with a 464cc inline-4 engine, producing a whopping 15 horsepower to the rear wheels. It has a 4-speed manual transmission, and it tops out at approx. 70 mph, give or take the road incline.


    Featuring a rear deck capable of holding some cargo, the Migo at least attempts to be practical. That's not what won people's hearts though - thanks to those adorable looks, its become a cult classic, with used example values right behind the original Iskra models. It's a very, very good car for casually cruising in a scenic coastal town, even with its communist origins.

    Known issues;
    None that I know of! Let me know if you find any.

    This is a very slow car, don't expect super-fast racing or anything. It's built to be realistic given its origin story, and will behave as such.
