GMK Yugo

Waitlist
$0.00

Note: This is a group buy and is planned to launch in November.

GMK Yugo is a keycap set of the people - designed by the keycap collective of ADRO3, audiosl4ve, darko, Emir, konstantin (constexpr), and spakecdk. Inspired by the iconic Yugoslavian automobile - GMK Yugo is being retrofitted for the US market through the addition of the essential Capitalist Kit. 

If you love nostalgia from the Cold War, the Yugo is the set for you. The Yugo was originally produced in the 1980’s by the Serbian arms manufacturer Zastava as the generic version of the Fiat 127. Targeted toward first time car buyers, the Yugo was affordable, quirky and downright terrible.

Here are some reviews of the famous automobile:

Car Talk - the single Worst Car of the last Millennium” - Article

CNN - "hard to recommend at any price" - Article

Jeremy Clarkson - “a hateful, hateful car" - YouTube Link

Eric Peter, Automotive Atrocities: The Cars We Love to Hate. The Yugo will likely hold in perpetual ignominy the title of 'Worst Car Ever Sold to the American Public’”

This keycap set makes use of custom RAL colors and will be produced by the legendary German manufacturer GMK, a factory known for its quality and attention to detail. Indeed, this instance of the Yugo may be the only time in history this brand name has been produced to reasonable standards.
