By the way, this is not the first arrival of UAZ to the Italian market. From the 1970s to the 1990s, Ulyanovsk SUVs were sold by Gruppo SPA Martorelli Srl. The Martorelli brothers have not only sold cars with "native" engines, but also foreign engines – Peugeot and VM diesel engines and Fiat petrol engines. For the Italian market, SUVs from Ulyanovsk are often retrofitted with a stiff roof or a better tent, power steering, more comfortable seats and sliding windows. In total, Martorelli sold 6662 "UAZ" in Italy from 1973 to 1999.
