Until the 2000s, the highest officials of Russia moved in limousine ZIL-41047, designed in the USSR. And the last two decades, the main government car was the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. In this car, everything is fine, except for one thing: it is German. But very soon the president of Russia will change to the domestic car, which, as promised, will be better than the Rolls-Royce.

In 2012, it became known that a number of new cars would appear in Russia soon. They are designed by NAMI specialists in Moscow. The Tuple project provides for the development of a platform on the basis of which several models with different bodies will be produced: a limousine, a sedan, a crossover, a minivan. The next few years, cars can be bought, but the limousine is available only to the President of Russia.

The appearance of the "Cortege" is associated with the British Rolls-Royce, but it is completely domestic development. Long black body looks very strict. The only decoration is the emblem of the Russian Federation.
The presidential limousine will receive an injector V12 - the first motor in Russia of such a scheme for a car.

Due to the high pre-inflation pressure (2.3 bar), the 6.6-liter engine delivers 830 hp of power.(at 5500 rpm), and torque 1320 N ∙ m. Results at the level of the best global manufacturers are achieved thanks to direct injection and controlled valve timing.
A 9-speed hybrid gearbox with an electric motor is joined to the monstrous engine.

The development of the project "Cortege" lasted 5 years. Russian President Vladimir Putin has previously tested a prototype. And this week, representatives of NAMI announced the beginning of the assembly of the first series of 14 copies.
