In May 2018, the Russian President's new limousine made its official appearance at his presidential inauguration.

This Model of the brand "AURUS" called in Russia "KORTEZH" (Procession) is from a project of the same name. It was launched in 2012, from the will of the Russian President, to compete with the luxury limousines, as well as to show the power during his travels as the American President does with his "CADILLAC ONE".

For this new Russian limousine, several sketches have been made

to define ideas,

and an aesthetic.
A functional model was built and the optics and air inlets were later modified.
The outcome of this AURUS Kortezh Limousine is reminiscent of the Rolls-Royce style.

Here are some characteristics of the vehicle:
6.84 meters long
2 meters wide
More than 6 tons

The budget for the design and production of this limousine was around 170 million Euros with a view to manufacturing other models such as limousines or the AURUS Senate, the AURUS Arsenal Estate or the AURUS Komandeur 4x4.
The objective was to create a Russian luxury brand reminiscent of the time when the Soviets created their own limousines.
The interior is very luxurious.
And one can distinguish the emblem of Russia with the two-headed eagle on the steering wheel.

It is screened during foreign visits of the Russian President, as here in October 2019 during an official visit to the United Arab Emirates.
there, in Belgrade, Serbia, in January 2019,

or here, with these two videos, in Paris in 2019:

The idea is to sell it later as a luxury sedan.

Here is a video of its design

The convertible model of the AURUS Senate was also developed and unveiled on May 07, 2019 at the Victory over Nazi Germany Day parade in Moscow.

Here are two of these models with the Russian Minister of Defense aboard 0001 MO on the right, and the General of the Russian Army aboard 0002 MO on the left.

Already in the time of the Soviet Union, the dignitaries drove in limousines.
With the fall of the USSR, Russian presidents will change by driving around in Mercedes Limousines.
whether in Moscow, within the Russian territory or internationally.

Convoys in Moscow are always impressive.

On these videos, we can see the principle of a protective bubble around the Russian presidential limousine on the main Moscow avenues:

Video of 2012
This need to show power in the escort and speed of movement has always taken place. We remember in 2012, the scenario of the Russian president's inauguration, where the streets were emptied of traffic, and where the presidential convoy had covered, from the Russian Parliament to the Kremlin, its 5 kilometers of distance...
