    You are correct, it’s the ZIL-4102.

    ZIL-4102

    Interesting backstory on this car:

    “Behold the ZIL-4102 ‘Ràyka’. This was named after and made for Raisa Gorbacheva, the First Lady of Mikhail Gorbachev, who was the last leader of the Soviet Union and the comrade responsible for its collapse and eradication of the Berlin Wall…

    …Unfortunately (which is a huge understatement), when the car was presented to the Gorbachev couple, the First Lady became furious that ZIL had decided to construct it and to give such a car as a present while the whole country was suffering from hunger and poverty. Her husband agreed and the project disappeared.”
