The media learned about the new car Kim Jong-unOctober 9, 2018
North Korean President Kim Jong-un arrived at the meeting with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in a Rolls-Royce Phantom car. This is reported by CNN, after studying the relevant photos. Prior to this, the North Korean leader used an armored limousine Mercedes-Maybach Pullman Guard, which costs more than $ 1 million.
It is still unknown how these machines could be at the disposal of Kim Jong-un. Currently, UN sanctions against North Korea prohibit the supply of luxury goods to Pyongyang. Thus, the purchase of limousines is a violation of the sectional mode.
The Phantom sedan is equipped with a 6.75-liter turbocharged V12 engine. The engine develops 571 hp and 900 Nm of torque, which is available from 1,700 rpm. The power unit is combined with an eight-speed automatic transmission ZF.
Previously, the head of the DPRK, Kim Jong-un, was noticed in the back seat of the Russian Lada Priora. The leader of the country chose this car for a trip to the military unit of 1524, which is located in the county of Sindo, near the Chinese border.
