Goodbye Lada Classic - hello XRAY
22 September 2012 Last updated at 00:23 BST
The last Lada Classic rolled off the production line in Russia earlier this week after 40 years of production.
But Russian carmaker AvtoVaz, which owns Lada, has just launched a new concept car which it hopes will also capture the hearts of drivers.
It was designed by a leading British car designer, Steve Mattin. He worked at Mercedes Benz, and was the Design Director at Volvo, but agreed to move to Lada last year.
Moscow correspondent Daniel Sandford went to see Steve Mattin and his XRAY Concept car.
