Nikolai Fomenko, is a Russian celebrity. He’s a movie star, game show host, former pop star, and a winning FIA-GT race car driver. In America, that makes him a little like a combination of Mark Wahlberg (without all the Marky Mark jokes) and Jeff Gordon with a little Pat Sajak thrown into the mix.
But it seems that Fomenko still has enough time on his hands to develop his own sports car. It’s called the Marussia, and the car has more ambition than most start-up car companies. The Marussia was developed as a hybrid with a Renault-sourced 3.5-liter V6 making 240 hp and an electrical engine (with no other details provided). There are also plans to wireless networking capabilities, Bluetooth, GPS and multiple video screens.
