MOSCOW, Russia – A concept of a brand new LADA FIA World Touring Car Championship challenger, based on the LADA Vesta, will be unveiled at the Moscow Int’l Motor Show in the Russian capital.

The 2015 LADA Vesta, previewed in July, is an all-new B-class sedan and a replacement for the LADA Priora, and is scheduled to go into production in September of next year.

AVTOVAZ is in the process of conducting production preparations and has begun building the initial Vesta prototypes, which will be based on a new LADA B platform and the first serial embodiment of the Russian manufacturer’s new design direction, having inherited DNA from the LADA XRAY concept car, unveiled at the 2012 Moscow Motor Show.

LADA Sport’s highly-skilled engineers believe the size and dimensions of LADA Vesta are ideal for building a competitive WTCC racer, development of which is already underway.

“Racing is the right approach for LADA,” said Mr Andersson in an interview with the Russian ITAR-TASS news agency. “We have a lot of fans and people who support this programme, so the company’s involvement in motorsport is important and we need to win. The visitors of the Moscow Motor Show will have a chance to see the new LADA Vesta racecar that has been designed for competition in the FIA World Touring Car Championship (WTCC).”
