New Aurus Arsenal: Is This The Rolls-Royce (Clone) Of Minivans?

If you’ve ever wondered what a Rolls-Royce minivan would look like, you’re in luck as Aurus has posted a couple of pictures of the Arsenal on social media.

Following in the footsteps of the Senat, the Arsenal has a massive rectangular grille which is flanked by slender headlights and large air intakes with chrome accents. The model also has a sculpted hood which flows into the bodywork just like on the ultra-luxury sedan.

While the front end says luxury, the profile is all about practicability as the van has a tall roof and two sliding rear doors. The Arsenal also has large side steps and cut outs in the rear windows which allow them to open. Elsewhere, the van echoes the Senat with similarly styled wheels and tasteful chrome trim around the lower body.

Aurus hasn’t said much about the Arsenal, but the minivan has been around for awhile and can occasionally be seen in President Putin’s motorcade. Despite the lack of details, the van likely uses a hybridized V8 that produces 590 hp (440 kW / 598 PS) and 649 lb-ft (880 Nm) of torque.

Regardless of what’s under the hood, Aurus says all their vehicles ride on a modular platform and this allows the company to quickly and easily change the length, wheelbase and “type of the vehicle” they create.

In more recent news, Aurus released a new teaser video which suggests the brand is going racing. The clip doesn’t reveal much, but it shows an Aurus-branded race car which Carscoops reader Михаил believes could be connected to Russia’s G-Drive Racing Team. That remains unclear, but an announcement is coming soon.
