Renault Kangoo Coffee Van

Food trucks is a sub-topic of car spotting going on on this blog, and here's a Renault Kangoo coffee van.


Usually found here in Moscow  in summer time at parks and other such recreation locations.


A Renault Kangoo I, face-lifted, probably, above. But the below picture is probably from a different coffee van.

2017 Nissan GT-R

Here is a Nissan GT-R.



Spotted recently in traffic. Actually this is the No. 1 spot of any Nissan GT-R recorded on this car spotting blog (and a no. 1 Nissan too).


What's more, it appears to be a 2017 model update Nissan GT-R, compare to picture below off Nissan Russian website.


Available here in Russia, and costs a measly  RUB 7,700,000.

Vostok 8K72K Rocket

The Vostok 8K72K rocket displayed at VDNKh.


I think I recorded it once on this blog already but these are different pictures and they are from April 2016.


The Vostok 8K72K was a rocket derived from the Soviet R-7 Semyorka ICBM designed for the human spaceflight programme.


This and similar rockets launched the first artificial satellite (Sputnik 1) and the first manned spacecraft (Vostok) in human history.


Here it is seen at the VDNKh exhibition center in April 2016.












2 Gen Dodge Intrepid 2

For completion's sake here is a 2nd Generation Dodge Intrepid from my other blog and two years ago.

Quoting below that other post.


Today's subject is this Dodge Intrepid Second Generation full-size car (pictured below) and was found on a dealer's lot.


[Not] The first Chrysler product on this series... to be fair this one is neither RWD nor does it seat six people but is surely classed as a full-size car as it checks most of the other boxes -- V6 power (at least), length over 5,000 mm, a roomy passenger compartment, etc.


It may have been in a minor accident -- or, God forbid, it struck somebody in the safe hands of its previous owners... also "rust coloration" is visible in places. This car is likely over 10 years old at the very least as production was ended in 2003. But it is now available to buy as somebody's trade-in at my Ford dealer where I made these photos yesterday.


Chrysler's LH platform, cab-forward design or something. I actually like the look of this car... coming from a time when car designers were willing to try something new, to introduce new concepts and their designs ended up mostly looking much better than the current blobs of cars which almost all look boring and unappealing... to me anyway, also bloated like.


Other than the front end, it doesn't look that bad for a ten (at least) year old car.
