ZIL-41047 is a limousine from ZIL. It has seven seats including the driver. When loaded it weighs 3,550 kg (7,826 lb). The top speed with two persons is listed as "not less than 190 km/h (118 mph)".

It replaced the ZIL-4104 in 1985 and had virtually no mechanical changes compared with that model. The only major changes have been in the styling, which in some respects, notably in the rear-view mirrors, was subtly modernised compared to the styling of previous ZIL models. The front turn indicators were also modernised, with the rectangular horizontal line giving way to a more vertically-oriented, door-like shape. The front headlights were also restyled, as was the rear parcel shelf. Inside, the most notable change was the replacement of ZIL's venerable pushbutton automatic transmission by a gear selector on the floor. The car is so wide that the centre console can stand parallel to the gear selector [1].

The ZIL-41041 is a similar model with a much shorter wheelbase. It is essentially a five-seater saloon and does not have the extra window behind the rear doors.

Although the ZIL models officially continue in production, their customers have turned to more modern models of limousines in recent years.

A prototype ZIL-4112 with a much improved version of the V8 with fuel injection and output increased by over 25 percent [2][3] was shown for the first time in 2005 and should eventually go into production.
