Something menacing is coming.
Back at Krovstal headquarter, a meeting appointment is bring held to discuss the latest event that is the Goodwood festival of speed.
“Comrades,” Yuri Pavlovsky, the CEO begins, “an opportunity has once again shined upon us. What do you suggest for our consideration?”
Many c-level officers in the room soon expressing their opinions, while a few secretaries serve them drinks.
“No one’s interested in our company, comrade,” points out chief marketing officer, “we should seize the chance to gain the public attention.”
“Ay, debil, you’re making us look stupid,” argues chief financial officer, “sale figures just came in and it isn’t saving itself.”
“Alright, alright, tell us about it,” demands the CEO.
“Our revenue started to drop steadily since our reveal of the Babushka in 2016. People aren’t buying our vans for the hype, and now that hype itself is dying.”
“That’s more a reason to bring it back quickly, comrade,” argued CMO.
“Blyat, we never gain that much money from bullshit marketing. Our vans costs ass to mass produce, and it’s not paying back our investment. I say we shut up and keep making our sensible trims we have been making.”
“But…our nation, comrades!” CMO gets desperate, “we are the survivor of the industry, we will make it out!”
“Yeah, by pure luck, cyka.”
“No no no no, we make it here because of our love towards the mother Russia. The world loves
mother Russia because of us.”
“But our company…” CEO reminds.
“Non-sense, comrade. We must not be swept under the rug under this…western system. We need to preserve this effort of our love.”
“Please don’t,” CFO looks at him, “We need our money to keep ourselves alive.”
The CEO sighs, before making the decision.
“Alright, send them my regards. We’re sending our cars there,” he orders, much to the CFO’s dismay.
“yes, comrades. We will make the world see what we’re capable of. The Babushka, will return…to promote our lineup and bring back all the profits you lost,” The CEO concludes, before leaving the room, and the fate of the company uncertain.
I don’t think this turreted van would belong at the hillclimb - but maybe it could be repurposed to shoot flares and fireworks during the festival.
Well, time to actually design the exteriors of the cars I’ve built so far
Drivers.com is coming to Goodwood. Stay tuned for more.
Time for a proper AD
Time at the Goodwood Hillclimb is a 47.65 (or maybe 41.01 im not sure what im meant to be looking at)
Are you sure Platonic is the word you wanted to use? That would be the first time i saw a performance vehicle being advertised as chaste and non-sexual… Usually it’s completely the opposite and marketers are falling over themselves about how erotic the experience is
