Russian President Vladimir Putin presented a long version of Aurus to the King of Bahrain Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, TASS writes with reference to Presidential Assistant for International Affairs Yuri Ushakov. The head of the Middle Eastern state flew to Russia the day before at Putin’s invitation to, among other things, discuss the prospects for trade and economic cooperation between the countries.

It is not specified which variant of Aurus was given to Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa as a gift. More recently, the Aurus Senat has been updated: the new version differs from its predecessor in its retouched design, lightweight hood and new equipment. The headlights are now matrix, there is a digital rearview mirror, additional cameras, a new NAMI “multimedia” and a night vision function.

In addition, the Aurus has had improved braking systems, suspension and transmission. The power plant is the same – a 598-horsepower hybrid based on a 4.4-liter V8.

It turned out why the headlights of the updated Aurus are better than their Mercedes and Audi counterparts. The St. Petersburg ex-plant of Toyota transferred to Aurus. Pre-orders for the Russian electric motorcycle Aurus Merlon are open.

For now, the updated Aurus is produced individually. Serial assembly will be launched at the end of next year, at which time the new product will be available for free sale.

Previously, Putin presented Aurus to the head of North Korea, Kim Jong-un. The Korean side called the car “the best gift,” and later the media reported that the DPRK leader began to drive it constantly.
