This two-seat concept vehicle is purpose-built and features high- quality, detailed composite body sections on a Chrome-Moly steel frame. The frame is tough, durable, resistant to corrosion and ready to take on any off-road adventure.
The mechanicals, such as the transfer case and aluminium radiator with dual fans, are moved rearward to achieve a 50/50 weight distribution, providing optimal traction in rugged terrain. An ecto-skeletal design allows the components to be visible, and removable side body panels are secured to the frame by lightweight aluminium fasteners. The exposed front frame structure is accentuated by a honeycomb texture front grille and four round high-intensity driving lamps, which gives the overall appearance a tough, solid stance.
In lieu of door handles, padded grip areas on the top and side frame ease access when climbing in and out of the vehicle. Other features include dual stainless steel side exiting exhausts, five-spoke, 17-inch cast aluminium wheels, and a full size spare tire cradled behind the seating area.
The interior features a full roll cage and seats wrapped in a black and tan all-weather material. This versatile textile resists damage from the sun, ozone and weather and displays outstanding physical toughness. The steering wheel and instruments are mounted on a steering mechanism that glides from side to side to allow for easier entry and exit. Occupants strap into their seats with four-point safety belts and dual air bags are located in the center of the wheel and the instrument panel.
