Marussia Trying to Please Vladimir Putin with Limo Concepts [Photo Gallery]
After ZIL's 7.7-liter 4112P prototype was ditched by the Government, it's now Marussia's turn to try and please the President, and the supercar company gathered several conceptual designs during a contest, Carscoop reports.
The winner's concept car, which will be announced on May 1, will receive a 1:1 prototype that will be subjected to governmental review before going into production, but until then we might have a look at these proposals.
Some of them are quite original, but we can't help not thinking about the Cadillac Sixteen, the Rolls Royce Phantom, and some other US concept cars when looking at some those creations.
In other related news, GAZ is also developing a luxury model based on the Volkswagen Phaeton and Audi A8 to be unveiled in 2014.
