The Russian president’s motorcade made an impressive appearance on its maiden voyage to the South American G20 recently and all eyes were on the new Aurus limousine.
Putin recently dumped his Mercedes-Benz S600 Pullman to favour for the Russian built limo developed by the country’s NAMI institute as part of the ‘Kortezh’ project.
Dubbed the ‘bunker on wheels’, the ballistic and explosive-protected Aurus Senat has attracted international interest – Putin has reported to have shown the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi Mohammed Al Nahyan, and it was also recently showcased to Egyptian President Abdel Fatah el-Sisi.
The car is equipped with many life-saving, offensive, and defensive measures, and is built to the Federal Protective Service’s standards.
