The supercar for Russian papals was introduced to Moscow as early as 2019, on May 9, when the Russians commemorating the victory over the Nazis in World War II. Russia is now at war with Ukraine and the world.
The show carriage of the newly created Aurus brand is based on the limousine we imagined recently (read here).
In 2019, two Aurus convertibles launched the show, this time they probably exported the same pieces from the Kremlin garages. In fact, the production of the limousine did not even start in many years, even though it was planned to sell it to the rich. However, there does not seem to be demand.
However, open performances derived from a limousine named Senat were created only for show purposes, production is not considered. Aurus is currently finalizing the development of the MPV, which will accommodate a whole bunch of apparatchiks (that’s what we are, of course they wrote three years ago…). The newly Russian Minister of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov announced that another variant of the Aurus, a large SUV named Komendant, should be introduced this year.
But back to Red Square: the monumental canvas convertible has only one pair of extended doors, the same hybrid engine with an eight-cylinder and a total output of 600 horsepower works in the bowels, which transmits to all wheels a nine-speed automatic as a limousine.
According to unofficial information, the open show special has a chassis lower by two centimeters compared to the sedan. The interior has also undergone a number of modifications, with builders using water-resistant materials when the show is dripping with rain. The passenger seat also went away, as the statesman is expected to stand at the parade. For these purposes, a handle and a microphone were added to the windshield frame so that the chief could give speeches from the car deck.
