The Aurus Arsenal has passed certification: what new things have been learned about the model.

It is reported that the Aurus Arsenal has impressive dimensions: its length is 5 980 mm, the size of the wheelbase — 3 550, width — 2 020, height — 2 090.

Curb weight of the model is 4,950 kg. However, there is a simple explanation for such an impressive figure — only the armored version is certified now, while the civilian version is supposed to be noticeably lighter.

According to the documents, the Aurus Arsenal passes as «special-purpose vehicle to protect lives and health of the driver and passengers», but in the motorcades already built cars are used as cover cars.

The single-cab has an eight-seat interior layout with a seating arrangement of 2 + 2 + 2 + 2, and the seats of the three rear rows can rotate around their axis.

As for technology, the Arsenal is built on the same platform as the Senat sedan.

It is powered by a standard hybrid setup on the basis of a 4.4-liter gasoline V8, the total capacity of which reaches 598 hp.

The minivan is equipped with a nine-speed automatic and all-wheel drive system.

It should be noted that over the past three and a half years, not more than 30 such cars were built on the NAMI facilities, and all of them ended up at the disposal of departmental garages.

The situation is unlikely to change in the near future, as the OTTs have only been issued for a batch of 100 vehicles, and they are unlikely to appear in the public domain.

Anyway, the Arsenal has no analogues in the world: Mercedes-Benz and Volkswagen one-ton trucks have diesel engines and are not designed for heavy armored bodies, while the American Chevrolet Express vans are built on commercial chassis with leaf springs.
