Kim Jong-un Receives Lavish £350,000 Bulletproof Limo Gift from Putin in Appreciation for Weaponry; Dictator’s Opulent Car Collection Exposed

PYONGYANG, NORTH KOREA - OCTOBER 19: (----EDITORIAL USE ONLY - MANDATORY CREDIT - 'RUSSIAN FMA TELEGRAM CHANNEL / HANDOUT' - NO MARKETING NO ADVERTISING CAMPAIGNS - DISTRIBUTED AS A SERVICE TO CLIENTS----) Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov (not seen) meets North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Pyongyang, North Korea on October 19, 2023.

The North Korean leader was reported to have spent a significant amount on a fleet of luxury cars and was recently seen driving four new foreign vehicles.

The Kremlin confirmed on Tuesday that a Russian-made full-size luxury sedan limousine by Aurus, Russia’s first luxury car brand, was en route to North Korea.

As per reports from North Korean state media, the car was personally delivered by a Russian delegation over the weekend.

Putin’s extravagant gift may have violated Moscow-backed United Nations Security Council sanctions against Pyongyang, which prohibit the provision of luxury items, including all forms of transportation, to the country.

Kim is known for being a motor enthusiast and having a passion for Mercedes vehicles.

Recently, he has been spotted driving a £160,000 armored Mercedes-Maybach S560 sedan, a luxury Mercedes, and a Lexus SUV, as reported by Seoul-based NK News.

The method by which the vehicles arrived in North Korea remains unclear, as the country has been under sanctions for over ten years.

However, the government has a well-established practice of bringing in high-end goods like designer bags, clothing, and expensive alcohol that are favored by the Kim dynasty and elite members of Pyongyang.

Kim’s Limousine Gift to Putin Sparks Questions on North Korea in Ukraine Invasion

AMUR REGION, RUSSIA – SEPTEMBER 13: (—-EDITORIAL USE ONLY – MANDATORY CREDIT – ‘KREMLIN PRESS OFFICE / HANDOUT’ – NO MARKETING NO ADVERTISING CAMPAIGNS – DISTRIBUTED AS A SERVICE TO CLIENTS—-) North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un arrives the Russian spaceport Vostochny Cosmodrome to inspect with Russian President Vladimir Putin (not seen) in Russia’s Amur region in the Far East on September 13, 2023. North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un said on Wednesday that relations with Russia are ‘the very first priority’ for his country. Putin and Kim then visited several facilities of the cosmodrome and also examined the construction of the new infrastructure.


When the North Korean official visited Russia last year, he was photographed examining Putin’s presidential Anrus Senat limousine.

The Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov mentioned that the motor was gifted to Kim because he admired Mr. Putin’s Aurus Senat Limousine, a custom luxury car.

There has been no official confirmation or denial from the Kremlin regarding the use of North Korea-made weapons in the invasion of Ukraine.

North Korea has refuted allegations of sending weapons to Russia, which would constitute a breach of UN sanctions.

Following Mr Kim’s trip to Russia in September, there has been an increase in the number of delegations exchanged between the two nations.

In 2019, Kim was seen with jogging bodyguards next to his limo before his meeting with Donald Trump.

Approximately twelve individuals in dark suits were observed running alongside the vehicle as it traveled through Hanoi.

The security team in suits quickly moved to surround the car from all sides, ensuring the safety of their leader.
