We imagine that many a Russian Lada has been compared to a ticking time bomb – which is not to say that there aren't any good Ladas out in the wild, of course – but the example you'll see in the video pasted below takes the cake. It is, quite literally, an Improvised Explosive Device.

If an exploding Lada alone isn't enough reason for you to watch, perhaps the reaction of the passengers is more of a draw. Their reaction to the impending doom is so quick that it's almost as if the two occupants were just waiting for the engine of this poor machine to reach its glorious and destructive demise.

See what we're talking about in the video pasted below.

      People say its fake but it looks alot like a carb fire. Video being available is suspicious but if it was in America that piece on the front of the car filming looks like it might be a police vehicle and a camera rolling 24/7 isn't out of the question. Though it would all be oddly lucky. Nothing unusual about a carb fire blowing a hood up and then taking the rest with it in time.

        Dash camera's in Russia are not uncommon especially on high end vehicles, and it looks that that car in the parking space is a G-wagon or something exceptionally high dollar. So i don't think that makes it any less credible.

        It seems awfully petty to bother commenting on a story just to say that you're not interested in it.
