Used to transport the president to the Grand Kremlin Palace, the presidential limo was developed as part of the Cortege / Kortezh project. The model looks a little bit like a Rolls-Royce knockoff as it features a large rectangular grille with a large Auros badge at the top. The grille is flanked by LED-infused headlights and large air intakes which feature chrome surrounds.
Moving further back, we can see a sculpted hood and a presidential flag mounted on the front fender. The model also has Rolls-Royce inspired mirrors and wheels.
The limo features plenty of chrome trim as there are bright window surrounds and a small chrome strip which runs the entire length of the vehicle. Given that this is a presidential limousine, it comes as little surprise the model has LED emergency lights and a variety of antennas on the roof for secure communications.
Technical specifications remain unconfirmed but a video from Russia Today suggests they will be “made public in the next couple of days.” Regardless of what’s under the hood, previous photos have shown the presidential limo has a luxurious interior with leather seats, wood trim and metallic accents. The rear passenger compartment where Putin sits has four individual seats which face each other and are separated by a full-length center console.
The presidential limo is just one of the many different vehicles developed as part of the Cortege / Kortezh project. In the future, we can expect to see a more traditional sedan, a crossover and possibly even a minivan.
