Aurus Komendant: The "cheap" Russian copy of the Rolls Royce Cullinan

Aurus commander

By now everyone knows that Vladimir Putin is one of the biggest megalomaniacs in the world. If we go to the Dictionary of the Spanish language we will know what it is: «Person who suffers from mania or delusions of grandeur». And with his latest "wanderings" he is showing that he is one of those who "die killing." Political disquisitions and his war crimes aside, he also has a business vision. Even if it is at the cost of copying those that "he hates..."

Yes, because it's been a while ordered the creation of the Aurus car brand and develop a range of models with which to compete against its European premium rivals. With the Senat they demonstrated that Rolls Royce is the mirror in which they look (and copy) and now they repeat the pattern with the Aurus commander. It is the first SUV that the brand creates and as they say "what you ask for on the internet and what you get". Come on, nailed to the Rolls Royce Cullinan.

If the Aurus Komendant is not a COPY of the Rolls Royce Cullinan, may "God come and see"...

Perhaps you may think that we have a mania for the Aurus Komendant for being the creation of a war criminal but no. The reasons for are others and we have said them: it is a copy of the Cullinan. And the saddest thing is that the brand will not recognize it, but you only have to see the front design. And it is not the only thing, the lateral line with the rims and the wheel arches or, more easily, the sheet-glass line…

The same thing happens behind, so it is not necessary to go into details. Regarding his technique, there is something else to say, well is based on the unified modular platform (UMP). Thanks to her, her external length is 5,38 meters by 2 meters wide and 1,82 meters high by a battle of 3,1 meters. Also at these heights a "full" is marked as it is almost the same size although smaller than the Senate.

From inside the Aurus Komendant sports superlative design and luxury. The difference is that it approaches the Senat for details. It can have four or five seats and in the most "exclusive" versions there will be no shortage of leather and wood as well as gadgets such as removable tables or a four-zone air conditioner. In addition to the fact that the rear passage will have screens or a set of security systems (ADAS).

Regarding its drive train, it is entrusted to a hybrid system 4.4 V8 biturbo + electric 598 hp and 880 Nm. The electric motor goes in the 9-speed automatic transmission and the lithium-ion battery has a capacity of 16 Ah. Its performance, despite the fact that it weighs 3.235 kilos, is good with a step from 0 to 100 km/h in 6,5 seconds and it will have a top speed of 220 km/h.

When will the Komendant hit the market?

As far as we have learned, its production will start at the Yelabuga factory at the beginning of 2023. Apparently the announced annual production will be 5 thousand units and the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade has been quick to indicate that 70% of component suppliers are from the country. Perhaps it is to give guarantees that the economic blockade of the whole world to Russia will not affect them. Although it will probably be delayed, much…

Finally, it's time to talk about its price... According to what they say the "basic" Aurus Komendant starts at 33.700.000 million rubles or what is the same, some 570.946,44 Euros. In fact, they are proud to indicate that it is still cheaper than the Senat that they sell for 38.835.000 million rubles (657.943,77 euros). Come on, you have to be just as "moronic" as Putin to buy a "premium" car that has no representation capacity...
