Tupolev 007 is a cold war remnant enveloped in eccentricity by design and form just like the era it has descended from. Designed by Russian aviation legend Aleksei Tupolev, the Tupolev 007 represents an age when erstwhile USSR and USA were fierce competitors in space technology and USSR was on the hunt for a recovery vehicle which could traverse in unforgiving and frigid Siberian terrain. Hard to understand Tupolev 007 is shallow-draft craft powered by a 9-cylinder Vedenyev M14P radial aircraft engine generating 365 hp. The double-propeller is fixed with the rear prop drafting the front blades to increase efficiency and make operation quieter. The Tupolev could also skim lakes, marshes, and snow at a speed above 50 mph. On display at 15th Annual Greenwich Concurs d’Elegance, the design won Tupolev the Diploma of Finest Engineer in the USSR. Sickle and hammer symbol embossed on the rear of Tupolev surely relives the mighty era. Check out the gallery after the jump.
