Regular readers to our pages know that we do a lot of spy shot stories. These are images of cars that will make their way to India or at times even international models. However, today we have something different for you. Our spy photographers have sent us images of what appears to be the next generation Russian presidential limo.

Bearing all the hallmarks of a Rolls Royce, this vehicle has been dubbed the Kortezh (codenamed project cortage). Over 5000 of them will be produced over the next three years with 200 vehicles expected to roll out this year. It is pretty obvious that the first lot of these vehicles will go to Mr Putin’s fleet. In addition to this luxury limo, the company is also expected to produce an SUV of similar nature.

Our sources suggest that Porsche has been roped in to develop the engines and the drive train. So expect this new official limo to be fast and smooth on the roads.  There are no photos of the cabin or interiors but we know that it will loaded to the gills with the latest Russian technology and armaments to keep the leader of the Russian federation connected, in-command and in the lap of luxury.

Russia, since the time it had been part of the USSR, has had a long history of transporting its leaders in massive sedans. They were seen as symbols of power, class and enforcement and many times were unofficial symbols of the class divide that existed for many years.
