Marussia Motors was a Russain sports car company founded in 2007 by former racing driver Nikolay Fomenko. Russia’s first high-performance car company was a remarkable story of vision, focus, innovation and ambition. It designed, and manufactured prototypes of both the B1 and the B2 sport cars. The Marussia B1 and B2 models were based on the same semi-monocoque chassis with a steel spaceframe covered by carbon fibre panels - differing only in body shape.
