For the first time, Russian President Vladimir Putin is using a newly designed Russian limousine to get to the summit with US President Donald Trump in Finland.

Putin landed in Helsinki behind schedule for the summit.

Until now, Putin had never taken the Kortezh limousine abroad, which he first used during his inauguration in May.

The use of the Kortezh could be a show of Russian pride to counter the US president's "The Beast".

The Russian president's motorcade included several other vehicles of the same Kortezh, or Aurus family.
