The story behind Russia’s Aurus presidential car

Meet Aurus, Vladimir Putin’s presidential car.

The Russian president initiated the Aurus project and was completed by a renowned automobile research institute in superfast time. The Aurus project took just five years to complete so that the car could make its first public appearance at Vladimir Putin’s inauguration in May 2018.

To create a true masterpiece of the automobile industry, the NAMI team used the experience and know-how of both national and foreign carmakers and relied on cutting-edge marketing approaches.

The result exceeded all expectations. Aurus is a car with features that satisfy the unique requirements of the presidential garage while meeting the wants of luxury car buyers in the retail market and serving as an apparent reference to the country of its origin.

In the new “Kremlinmobile” documentary, RT Documentary tells the story behind Russia’s first luxury car.
