• limousine for the president of Russia
Moscow Plant. Likhachev rasstaralsya and showed recently a prototype "limousine for Putin" - Zil-4112R. This machine, as they say in the factory, did 6 years - it exists in a single copy, and still needs refinement and improvement of the quality of assembly - during a test trip with the First Channel correspondent at the car broke the windshield wipers and the original wing doors closed curve.
To be honest, looking at it, hard to believe that the machine worked on the creation of as many as 6 years old. Down and Out but the trouble started - the vehicle for Putin starts and can even drive through the yard.
In the factory floor costs "Putin" limousine and old "government" ZIL:
Descriptions to your photos there and you can only guess what kind of car, and why she was there.
Some people in winter clothes dismantle old limousine for parts or try to repair it:
There are a few photos where people are in working form thoughtfully poking around in the ancient type of engines:
To unscrew here?
Well, somehow the least this place is similar to the assembly shop executive cars or tuning shop. I have been in such industries - they look to put it mildly, a little differently:
And here is the "Putin" ZIL - shestidverny limousine with a 7.7-liter gasoline engine with fuel injection and six-speed "automatic", as well as power steering. The power of the power unit of the new limousine, presumably, is 400 liters. from. At the ZIL-4104, which went Brezhnev, fuel consumption was 65 liters / 100 km. This, they say, will be smaller:
The same wipers, which broke during the test drive:
The seats are upholstered, as they say, the skin of young calves. I wonder where the ordered production of the cabin of the car?
To tell the truth, what can be seen on the photos, it looks very strange, and looks like some kind of scam. Presented car does not look like a vehicle of the first persons of the state. He seems to have no armored (see. US President car on the pictures below). shop interiors reminiscent of times shovel and assume that this production can be not inferior to the presidential Mercedes car, you can probably just endlessly believing in the possibility of the domestic automotive industry:
This American president machine. This car has a length of 6 m 3 weighs about 3 tons and is worth about 2.3 mn. Euros. Armor car reaches 200 mm. This is not just a lot, a lot, a car, even a tank can hardly be called, rather, it is a fortress on wheels. Such armor capable of withstanding penetration tank shell.
The car is designed for the movement of the president and his wife, six guards and a driver. Among the materials used for the construction - the entire set of airplane aluminum, titanium. ceramics.
In order to deceive potential terrorists, there are at least 3 identical car. Which of them would really be the president - just before the trip will be made aware of several employees of the secret service. Total personal security of US President carried out 3,200 special agents.
