Russia’s first foray into the world of supercars is finally coming to fruition with the debut of the Marussia B1 hybrid at the Frankfurt Motor Show this week.
The B1 will be released via serialized production so you can expect that only a limited run will be seen out on the roads. Marussia is bringing two of these babies to Frankfurt, in addition to the company’s brand-new concept car, the Marussia B2. We’re veering away from making any references to ‘Bananas in Pajamas’ jokes because we think that the Marussia B1 and B2 deserve better than being compared to two over-sized bananas wearing nightwear.
In any event, the Marussia B1 is expected to cost around €100,000 – or $146,000 – and will most likely be released at the tail end of next year.
As far as the B2 is concerned, there haven’t been a lot of photos of the new car, apart from a couple of teaser shots, so your guesses are as good as ours as far as what the car looks like.
The good news is, we won’t have to wait long to find out!
