Rebirth of a Retro Limo: Russian Prime Minister Soon Will be Riding in a Redesigned Vintage ZIL Limousine

Posted By Limo Service Chicago
3D Computer Generate Concept of a ZIL-4112P Limousine

Russia Prime Minister Vladimir Putin finally has a limo of his own. The car maker ZIL, the manufacturer of the Russian presidential limousines claims ZIL is even better "than US president Barack Obama's submarine". Concept images of a new limousine are already all around the web, limo service Chicago reports.

However, ZIL is not new in car manufacturing. Since 1920's it produced luxury sedans and limousines for Soviet leaders. Thought the production was in very low quantities, it kept going until 2005. In 2005, ZIL discontinued production of luxury vehicles and limousines. However, in 2012 (just several months ago) prime minister Putin announced he would prefer Russian leaders to be transported in more patriotic, locally produced limousines, which would be better alternative to foreign, mostly German luxury cars. No wonder such cars are popular here in Chicago too - they represent ultimate luxury and comfort.

The Russian ZIL limousines are priced just as high as the Rolls Royce, Maybach or any other high-end Chicago limousine. However, ZILs are almost unknown outside Russia and post Soviet countries. Moreover, the company only produces 10-15 ZILs a year, which makes it a very exclusive limousine.

Here are some pictures of the ZIL concept for 2012 production. The limo keeps the sharp look: straight lines, cutting edges, elongated body - the style of the car is very recognizable. The mirrors and the illumination speaks it's a ZIL.

The new ZIL model ZIL-4112P has a powerful 7.7 liter engine and a 6-speed transmission. The gas intake of the limo is 25 liters per 100 kilometers- improved since the last model. The interior of a limo features same comfortable amenities just like any other limousine: leather seating, privacy divider, worktables, window curtain and even a big TV, that is connected to the outside camera and shows the road even if the window shades are closed.

The revival of the ZIL limousine is extremely important to Russian automakers. The company will produce limousines at the Korean automaker Hyundai plant in Moscow. The first car should appear in early 2013, where the full production rate is supposed to begin in 2015.

For now, though, Chicago is happy with Barack Obama's Cadillac presidential Chicago limo. Which is hotter? Obama's presidential limousine or Putin's ZIL concept? Comment below!

Chicago Night Life from the Chauffeurs Perspective – an Interview with Chicago Limousine Driver

Black Stretch Limousine Parked at the Sidewalk
A chauffeur’s mission is to provide Chicago residents and visitors with reliable, quality and affordable limousine service. While having fun in a new glamorous limousine, most people do not think about the responsibilities the driver must take to keep them save and on time.

Q: What is a typical Chicago Night Out?

A: Night outs in Chicago are enchanting activities that involve extravagant dresses, stilettos, designer’s suit and a glass of your favorite vine. Typically, people group up in parties of 6-10 and go bar hopping to the Loop, Bucktown, Lakeview or Wrigleyville. However, everybody hates to be the dedicated driver for the party. Here is when the chauffeured limo comes in handy.

Q: What is the most difficult for a chauffeur?

A: Chauffeur’s profession is not easy: driving requires concentration, attention and reaction. Also, the driver needs to be always in charge of the safety and control. Sometimes, when things go crazy, people get kicked out of the bars, or get in fights. Then more people get involved and all turns into a big mess. A chauffeur needs to make sure all the party members are back in the limo, safe and happy.

Q: What makes you like your job?

A: I really like the social aspect of my job. I like meeting people, having a conversation with them and providing good service. There is nothing better than a good review online on http://www.elitechicagolimo.com with your name mentioned.
