    During his visit to Russia, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi got a chance to see the newest presidential Kortezh sedan in action. Along with his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, who was behind the wheel, the two presidents tested out the car at a Sochi Autodrom track, designed to host Formula 1 races.

    The Kortezh series of vehicles were specifically designed for transporting the Russian president. They replaced the foreign-made limos, which had long been used by the Russian president and were first presented during Vladimir Putin's inauguration in May 2018. Apart from the limo there are the "Senate" sedan and the "Arsenal" minivan versions. All Kortezh vehicles are planned to be adapted for the general public and sold under a new luxury brand, Aurus, starting in 2019.
