If you have been a regular reader to our site, then you will have noticed that we do a lot of spy image stories. Most of them are about heavily camouflaged India-bound cars or at times even about vehicles that may not make to India but are known world over. However, what our spy sleuths have sent us today is totally out of the box. In the pictures before you today is believed to be the latest limo for the president of Russia.
Bearing all the hallmarks of a Rolls Royce, this vehicle has been dubbed the Kortezh (codenamed project cortage). Over 5000 of them will be produced over the next three year with 200 vehicles expected to roll out this year. It is pretty obvious that the first lot of these vehicles will go to Mr Putin’s fleet. In addition to this luxury limo, the company is also expected to produce an SUV of similar nature.
Our sources suggest that Porsche has been roped in to develop the engines and the drive train. So expect this new official limo to be fast and smooth on the roads. There are no photos of the cabin or interiors but we know that it will loaded to the gills with the latest Russian technology and armaments to keep the leader of the Russian federation connected, in-command and in the lap of luxury at all times.
Russia, since the time it had been part of the USSR has a long history of transporting its leaders in massive sedans. They were seen as symbols of power, class and enforcement and often as the unofficial symbols of the class divide that existed in the communist nation for many years.
