"Tolyatti" is a transliteration of a Russian transliteration of "Togliatti." Palmiro Togliatti was for many years the much-loved leader of the Italian Communist Party; as I recall, the Zhiguli plant was built in conjunction with Fiat Motors, and the workers at the Fiat factory in Turin were staunch PCI supporters, so the name is kind of an obvious choice.

Thank you for sharing this!
