    You obviously have not been keeping up.

    Turbocharged V8 nominal power 600 hp but the drive train is hybrid electric so the combined power is closer to 700 hp.

    Turbocharged V12 nominal power over 800 hp.

    This thing is built like a tank even though the version in the video is not the armoured presidential limo.

    Some vapourware. People need to make a modicum of effort to research subjects before spewing their gut feelings.

    Great, i thought it was either gonna be vaporware or it was gonna be another Ivan Gren.

    There is no evidence of the 1 meter stretch in any of the videos and photos I posted.   The limos will be a low volume
    production batch after the main production starts.   There is a large separation between the front and rear doors in
    the limo version which is clearly absent in anything I posted.

    The number of lugs on those wheels is impressive.  This is not your usual 5 lug, tin foil crap designed for the average consumer.
    It looks to me that this sedan is much tougher than any pickup truck ever produced, including the duallys.   It must weigh
    well over two tons (maybe even more than three tons) and that explains the choice of engines.  The Rolls Royce Phantom
    which has a 453 hp V12 has a weight of 2.63 tons.   So Cortezh will likely be heavier.

    No it needed a loophole from previous FCA contract for the parts bin. NB: The State Limousine contact was signed during Rogozin era on the heels of the Iveco Rys/Lince contract.
    Also Valeo which was contracted for 60% of the spares and parts had to obtain green light from French Defense Ministry.

    Given Russia was smitten by sanctions, this is quite a good timeframe.

    I was naive, the thing weighs 7 tons armoured. It is a tank.

    They designed a platform for various vehicles as with the Armata. The bullet proof tires are a new all-Russian design.
    The platform including the limo version has a 20 cm clearance to avoid:



    Nice interior:

    Yes it did, but did you knew that this same car broke down in Tel Aviv because it was loaded to the brim with Diesel?
