GAZ Torpedo (1951)

The SG-2 racing car better known on public as “Torpedo-GAZ” (1951). it was created after “Victory sports” by designer A.A.Smolin. He refused the “Victory” body even if remade, having created a bearing aluminum body of a tear-shaped form of completely new design with use of aviation technologies. Its framework – a set from dural profiles, a covering – from aluminum sheet. On SG-2 “GAZ-Torpedo” was two all-Union records of speed are established.

Designers of GAS understood that the created sports cars of SG-1 and SG-2 – only transitional stage to more perfect designs with higher dynamic parameters. The idea of construction of superfast model which would become over time a basis for creation of the car, capable to establish new world records of speed was offered. And such by a car it was created which received designation of SG-3 and the name GAZ-TR. It had a turbojet. But it already other history.
