Today, I rebuild what many would call the worst car ever made - A 1986 Yugo GV, famous for being all over channels like Doug Demuro, Aging Wheels, and this one. Unfortunately, there was some pretty bad news in the middle that changed the scope of the build. Anyway, let's get to work!

    38:30 "Now its the most powerfull Yugo in the world" You are wrong brother 😂 Have you seen some of the projects here on the Balkans? We did 2.0 engine in there, lots of them are 1.6 around 100 or even more horse power, there are 1.4 turbo engines... Not the most powerfull in the world...

    A lovely little car, it never pretended to be sporty or have great build quality, it was just something for people get from A to B on a budget.

    You need work/practice with manual shifter...if you do not how, read manual, don't look stupid. Do not blame on car, with kind of assaulting comments - like "wow, second" not make yourself like clown - on the other way take Ferrary (if you can afford).

    Put smaller wheels on it, it will look better and accelerate harder. Also if you think this is the worst car in the world you obviously haven't seen Trabant

    I don't know how I got here, but hey, I appreciate a good video when I see one. Yugo wasn't really a good car, but at a time when it was launched, people could buy it with 2 monthly paychecks, and that was a huge thing...

    Totally dig this little one! 😍 I'm an oddity lover. Now I want one of them too.

    Even today you have original Yugo driving like a new. So you can't say the worst car ever made. Yugo was just a simple car with how much you pay you will get.

    How could you call yugo the worst car? Have you ever seen Wartburg, east Germany? Or, Trabant, for God sake? 2 stroke engines? Trabant limo...4 meters of iron and 5 meters of SMOKE?

    This factory made Zastava 101 that was travelling from former yugoslavia to Kilimanjaro and they made it without single breakage in the engine or anything else,only tyres were broken,so you don't know what is "THE WORST CAR EVER MADE" it,s some Korean car which has 100% od deadly outcome in frontal crash,so this is not the "WORST CAR EVER MADE" plus it's the most exported car in 60's and 70's from factory in former Yugoslavia to countries all over the world,it was the society status symbol,even our police and other institutions were using it as a official car

    I'm not a car guy - I don't even drive. I know the basic principles of an internal combustion engine, but I have to pause the video and Google the terms you use so I understand what particular parts do - and I am learning a lot. But I just love this channel and seeing you two do these cool projects.

    Honestly... I get recommended your vids all the time and they are usually good but normally I watch them. I'm not into watching fast cars made faster. I can do that on my own. Now, this cool and interesting. I'm curious and will watch this and savor it.

    I'm not just saying this because i live in former Yugoslavia in fact i hate the car but there are much much worse cars in the world than Yugo.


    yugos are cheap in the balkans bu evrywhere else its like 2k

    What is so weird about replacing everything on a Yugo? That is perfectly normal every 5000 miles for those cars.

  • fran

    Yugo is so underrated, cheap and has a lot of potential ,my grandpa had one for 30ish years with minimal problems....all you have to do is care about the car and it Will run

    YUGO was far from the best car Yugoslavia ever made, but it was most successful and bunch were sold all over the world. BTW, if that made you laugh, you should have tried YUGO with 175hp citroen engine, and before you say "that's not FIAT", yes it is, that multijet engine was FIAT licenced and just bolted on a Yugo. It was hilarious and dangerous as all hell...

  • ComradeAndrej

    It's the best car ever made. Dumbass.

  • Legodlak

    you forgot the most important part of yugo tuning... weigh all the pistons and conrods ... then lathe the pistons and machine the conrods so hey are all the same mass... should give you about 5 horsepower and a much smother engine

    Haha, 25y ago I had Red Yugo with 1.6l Fiat Reagata 100S (rare single camshaft version) engine, Solex carburator from Alfa Romeo (Dellorto had better performace but had to be tuned every single week), 4 disc breaks from the same Regata, steel reinforcement under the car and over the engine, light flywheel from Skoda Felicia to have nervous reaction, 3.5" lowered, coil springs from some Mercedes, differential blocked at 75%, rims from Lancia Delta, and my friend had similar configuration except it was Black and had Lancia 1.5l turbo engine... It wasn't so legal, but it was fun, and We've survived. :) There was one guy who was in illegal car races, and he took apart his Lancia Delta Integrale and rearranged it into his White Yugo, there was not enough space after the engine assembly, so the radiator was mounted in front of the car, so he had a Yugo with over 200hp...

    When a car has 2x power per litre and 4x MPG of a V8 AMC Pacer, it stands no chance of winning the "worst car of all time" title. And that was before you big blocked it!

    If I remember correctly, near or at the end of the Yugo run they introduced a bosch fuel injection system, (I could be wrong). I remember seeing this and remarking; "It'll need a lot more than that to compete in the jet assist" We used to say the "GV" stood for Giant Vag*na


    Only true Slav can master it.

    For 35 year old car, which was that cheap, what the fuck you expect? Was it beettle much better? People in US was buying this car to kids or to go to the market, not to race or show off in neighbourhood. Lets be realistic, I am from Serbia and i know this car well. It is a shit car, but comparing to price and role he was awsome. I see that model is no looking as one was exported to US. I think all was made with leather seats and some extra details, Anyway any car wont look better after 35 years specially if is that cheap you dont give a shit to care and do proper maintance. It was fun for watch!
