During his inauguration for a new term, heading Russia, Vladimir Putin took the opportunity to unveil his new official limousine. This is a giant car that looks like a result of attempts between Mercedes-Benz S-Class and Rolls-Royce Phantom.
Putin's limousine is code-named Cortezh (Aurus-41231SB or Senat Limousine), which is translated directly into a cortege, which means entourage or procession. The front has a huge chrome grille with vertical bars that emphasize the size of the car. Rectangular headlights cause the Chrysler 300. Behind, the rear window returns to the long tail, and the rear lights receive signals from the S-Class.
Technical information about the Tuple remains very scarce. The limousine is claimed to use a V12 turbocharged with 850 horsepower (634 kilowatts), which comes from Porsche Engineering and a nine-speed automatic transmission developed in Russia. Presumably, there are many communication technologies and security under the skin, including many armor.
