81-805.VIP is an upgrade to the 81-717 railcar series designed for Metrovagon, a Kolomna machine-building plant, under the order from Moscow Metropolitan.
There are two sections divided by the entrance and the ticket control lobby. Drivers cabin in the head end of the car is adjoined by the bar serving refreshments and coffee with stools, double seats and tables along the sides.
Sitting area with a newsstand are in the back.
The seats have handrails connecting headrests and backrests. In conformity with new security requirements, the railcar no longer features so-called chests that needed to be constantly checked for explosives by police. Instead, there are convenient overhead light luggage racks.
The new cars are equipped with supply and exhaust ventilation, air conditioning, and a climate control system. Reinforced noise insulation means that passengers will be able to speak to each other normally, not having to yell to be heard, which is often the case when riding in an ordinary railcar. And following new state standard, the doorway, previously measuring 4.5 ft (1.38 m), is designed to be of a larger size of 6.6 ft (2 m).
