President Vladimir Putin will move around town in an all-new Russian-made limousine late next year, Commerce and Industry Minister Denis Mantrurov told RIA Novosti on Monday.

The new Russian presidential limousine is set to be ready for September, 2017. Pictured: The Zil 41047, the last presidential limousine developed for and used by Soviet (and then Russian) leaders before President Boris Yeltsin switched to Mercedes in the mid-1990s - Sputnik International

Two hundred vehicles are to be built next year. The presidential limousine has been undergoing trials for almost a year now. Denis Manturov said that a series of crash-tests for the sedans had been slated for later this month.

An estimated 5,000 units of each of the four types of the Kortezh lineup are scheduled to roll off the assembly lines by 2020.

Denis Manturov said that these luxury cars will also be available to ordinary citizens who can afford to buy them.

“No problem, if you want an armored limo – well, they will build you one,” Manturov said, adding that Porsche had been brought on board to help design the cars’ engines.

The Kortezh project is being implemented by the Central Scientific Research Automobile and Automotive Institute in Moscow.
