DescriptionEdit

 
"72 Scorpion" version for presidential guards

The Zil has seven seats including the driver. When loaded it weighs 3,550 kg (7,826 lb). The top speed with two persons is listed as "not less than 190 km/h (118 mph)". It is powered by a 7.7 L (469 cubic inch) carbureted V8 giving 232 kW (315hp SAE Gross) at 4,400 revs per minute. This engine drives the rear wheels via a three-speed automatic transmission with the following ratios.

  • First gear: 2.02:1
  • Second gear: 1.42:1
  • Third gear: 1:1
  • Reverse: 1.42:1

It replaced the ZIL-4104 in 1985 and had virtually no mechanical changes compared with that model. The only major changes have been in the styling, which in some respects, notably in the rear-view mirrors, was subtly modernised compared to the styling of previous ZIL models. The front turn indicators were also modernised, with the rectangular horizontal line giving way to a more vertically oriented, door-like shape. The front headlights were also restyled, as was the rear parcel shelf.
