Vladimir Putin’s limousine took a ride on Geneva’s motorway for his European debut.
Aurus Senat L700 entered the spotlight when it delivered the Russian president to his inauguration last year.
Denis Manturov, Russian Minister of Industry and Trade, said the president gave feedback to the designer.
He asked for “some very easy changes if, I would say, the hydraulic system on the car because we first made it quite soft, he asked to make some changes do it more, I would say stronger, maybe more brutal”, said Manturov to reporters.
The car was designed as part of the Cortege project, carried out by NAMI (Central Scientific Research Automobile and Automotive Institute) in Moscow, Russia, in 201
3 to run Russia on the luxury market.
The interior has been aimed at rear passengers with rear seats that are 45 degrees and are equipped with design cushions.
There is also a built-in refrigerator with Aurus-labeled crystal glass and folding table with leather trim.
The car is expected to be sold in Europe by the end of 2020 with a price tag of about 150,000 euros.
