    The footage was captured during preparations for the traditional Victory Day Parade that will take place near the Kremlin in Moscow on 9 May.

    The Russian channel Zvezda has released the first footage of the cutting-edge Russian Aurus convertibles without their camouflage casing.

    Mass production of Aurus-brand vehicles (also known as Kortezh project vehicles) is expected to kick off in 2020, with production expected to gradually reach about 5,000 vehicles a year in 7 to 8 years' time.

    ​Meanwhile, the limited run of the luxury vehicles has already been sold out, despite their hefty price tag starting at 10 million roubles (about $151,000).
