‘Out­dated’ Lada to be scrapped


Midweek Sport - - NEWS - By RACHEL SPENCER

AF­TER more than 40 years on the road, Rus­sians have fi­nally de­cided to con­sign the much-ridiculed Lada to the scrapheap.

The box-like car – first pro­duced in 1970 – be­came the most joked-about ve­hi­cle in the world due to its shoddy con­struc­tion and un­re­li­a­bil­ity.

Mak­ers AV­TOVAZ have an­nounced it will halt man­u­fac­tur­ing of the mo­tor – known in Rus­sia as the “Zhiguli” – af­ter they sold more than 20 mil­lion units world­wide.

A spokesman said: “It’s time to say good­bye.

“The de­mand for ‘clas­si­cal’ mod­els has fallen dras­ti­cally.”

Crit­ics say the last ver­sion, the Lada 2107, was out­dated the mo­ment it first rolled off the assem­bly line three decades ago.

But un­like more so­phis­ti­cated Western mod­els, it seemed to cope bet­ter with the Siberian cold.

Fa­mous fans in­clude Chelsea ty­coon Ro­man Abramovich – who was once the proud owner of a dark blue model. POP a few teabags into your hot water tank, hey presto... you’ve got a nice cuppa any­time by sim­ply turn­ing on

the hot tap.



Jessie, 24, who once said she’d rather have her pal Katy Perry’s boobs, gave hers an air­ing – and it’s sent fans into melt­down.

One said: “Jessie is stun­ning and is al­ways show­ing off her fig­ure in tight out­fits, so it was great to see a bit of what she keeps un­der them.


“She has a very pert pair by the looks of this. Maybe she should warn herup-and-com­ing stars that they need to wear a bra!”

Jessie, though, has DE­NIED it’s her nip caught on-screen.

Af­ter she was tweeted by an ea­gle- eyed fan high­light­ing the wardrobe blun­der, she claimed it was tit tape!

Jessie tweeted: “Lmao! That isn’t my nip­ple that’s tit tape pulling on my boob. Haha! My boob is not that high.”

It’s a very nip­ple-shaped tit tape!

TALE OF THE TAPE: Jessie says nip is just

tit tape
