Peek at Mr. Putin's new presidential limousine

President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin has just introduced the latest limousine which is named Aurus Senat limousine. Then what makes the Aurus limousine interesting? It turns out that the car was a Russia's own domestically production.

Usually President Putin will use a German-made Mercedes-Benz. For example, at the 2018 World Cup event, Vladimir Putin was seen using Mercedes-Benz S600 Guard Pullman which had various advanced features in it.

This is understandable because so far Russia is not included as a reliable country in producing four-wheeled vehicles. But it seems that they are now starting to improve themselves to become the world's leading four-wheeled vehicle producer.

As is well known that Russia has developed automotive technology for a long time, one of them is through a four-wheeled vehicle project called the Kortezh Project. As reported by Sputniknews, this project was created at the initiative of Vladimir Putin and has been carried out since 2012 with a cost of around US. $195 million.

All of the four-wheeled vehicles developed in this project were designed by the Moscow-based Central Scientific Research Automobile & Engine Institute (NAMI). While for the machines, they collaborated with the famous German automotive company Porsche.

In addition to limousines, the Kortezh project will also make several types of cars, such as sedans or SUVs and others. With the presence of this luxury limousine, it will certainly be a new breakthrough for Russia.

Like the president's car in general, the Aurus limousine is of course also made as bulletproof vehicles which adapted from the armored car that Mr. Putin previously suggested. The car is covered with several layers of steel that make the weight of this car increased up to reach 6 tons!

And for the engine used by this car until now there is no detail yet. But reportedly is a twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter Porsche-developed V8 engine capable of spewing power up to 598 horsepower.

This limousine has been debuted at the 4th inauguration ceremony of Vladimir Putin as president of the Russian Federation in May 2018. According to the President Putin, by using domestic-made products is a form of patriotism.

This luxury presidential limousine has also been introduced to several important people from abroad such as the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan when visiting Russia some time ago.
As reported by Russia Today on July 16, 2018, this seems to have sparked interest among foreign customers, and this car seems to be popular in foreign markets, said Alexei Borokov, one of the teams who helped develop the vehicle. And starting in 2019 this car will be mass produced and sold to the public. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | SPUTNIK | RUSSIAN TODAY | AUTOWEEK]
