All about Vladimir Putin’s armored car, worthy of a real James Bond. It costs $ 1.3 million and is bomb resistant

Vladimir Putin has an official car like no other! The Russian president is riding in an almost seven-ton armored limousine that can withstand a bomb or chemical weapons attack.

Even James Bond would be envious of the Aurus Senate car, on which the Kremlin leader travels! At $ 1.3 million, the car holds up and keeps its passengers safe even if it is completely submerged, writes The Sun.

The presidential limousine is made in Russia, is 6.63 meters long, 2 meters wide and 1.70 meters high. It is equipped with a 4.4-liter Porsche V8 engine, has 600 hp and reaches a top speed of 250 kilometers per hour.

The vehicle has tires designed to withstand even if punctured, 6-centimeter reinforced glass windows, an air compression system to protect against gas attacks, armor and an emergency exit through the trunk.

It also recognizes road signs and limits its speed, and when faced with an unavoidable collision, Aurus can automatically move the passenger seats to a safer position, tighten all seat belts and then close the doors and windows.

Aurus is coordinated by the Central Scientific Research Institute for Automobiles in Russia and produces cars for Russian officials. At least 16 were handed over to agents of the President’s protection service.
