Hyundai has announced it will unveil the Russia-bound Equus Limousine during the Moscow Motor Show at the end of August.
Virtually a stretched version of the regular Equus, the car's overall length has increased with 28 cm (11 inches) to a total of 5.43 meters (214 inches). The vehicle also features "Limousine" emblems on the B-pillars and a sizable hood ornament.
Inside, the standard Equus’ rear bench seat has been replaced by two power-adjustable individual seats, separated by an arm rest with a lot of buttons. The entire interior is clothed with plush leather and equipped with a real wood trim.
The luxury car is powered by a 5.0-liter V8 engine with 430 PS (316 kW) and 509 Nm (376 lb-ft) of torque. The unit is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, which enables the Equus Limousine to reach the 100 km/h mark (62 mph) in 5.8 seconds before topping out at 225 km/h (140 mph).
The model will make its debut at the Moscow Motor Show, open to public between 29 August and 7 September. Right after the exhibition, the Equus Limousine will be available at local Hyundai dealerships, starting at 84,500 EUR ($113,000).
