ZiL Limo replacement contest winners announced

 ZiL Limo replacement contest winners announced

Russian presidential limo concept by Yaroslav Yakovlev and Bernard Weel 18.7.2013

Good enough for Putin?

A few months ago, Marussia Motors and hosted a contest which asked artists to create a new presidential limo for Vladimir Putin.

The response was overwhelming as more than 120 proposals were submitted in just a matter of weeks. Now, after a couple rounds of voting, Yaroslav Yakovlev and Bernd Weel have been declared the winners.

Over the course of three weeks, the duo worked together to create an imposing new limousine which expresses “power and authority.” The end result is pretty impressive as it has a stately appearance with a long hood and an upright front fascia. The stodgy styling gives way to a dynamic rear end which has a center-mounted dual-exhaust system and a distinctive rear bumper.

There’s no word on whether or not Putin has seen the model but it definitely looks a lot better than the previous Zil concept.
