Three real SUVs that have no analogues in the world
The global automotive industry is developing at a significant pace, and companies are developing new cars that are ahead of their predecessors in terms of comfort. In addition, the unmanned direction of vehicles is also developing, so that after some time, vehicles will be controlled using artificial intelligence. Cars are improved not only by tuning studios, but also by motorists who have their own point of view on issues of prestige and comfort of transport. Sometimes, when considering such a refinement, the thought arises that the master did not pay much attention to common sense.
Maus. Such a car was created on the basis of the Ford F-150 vehicle, which belongs to the generation of 13-17 years ago. They built the car at the facilities of the Kazakh manufacturer EXC Motors, and then even put it up for sale. In terms of appearance, the Mouse turned out to be similar to an armored car, but in reality there is no reservation. The engine compartment accommodates a 5.5-liter power plant, providing performance at the level of 650 hp. The maximum speed was 200 km / h. The clearance of a 6-meter SUV is characterized by an indicator of 310 mm. The height of the car, as well as its width, was 2.3 meters. The wheel diameter is 22 inches.
Crocodile skin is used in the interior trim. It is noteworthy that there is quite a large space between the front seats and the rear sofa. Directly in the armrest is a control unit for the multimedia system. The cost of the machine is 28 million rubles, and a total of 21 units will be produced.
USSV Rhino GX Executive. This car was released on the basis of Ford, but a heavier version of the F-450 Super Duty off-road car was taken as the basis. The car reaches 5.7 in length, and its width is at the level of 2.5 meters. The engine compartment of this development contains a 6.7-liter diesel engine or a gasoline equivalent. The fuel tank holds 150 liters of fuel. The presence of 38-inch wheels and a winch contributes to the aggressive appearance of the machine. The rear suspension is provided in a hydraulic version for greater driving comfort.
The interior of the car is similar to a limousine. The rear seats are separated by a partition from the seats in front, and they are made as 2 ottomans standing separately. The interior is characterized by a rich finish, where wood is used along with Alcantara. In addition, a large TV is provided.
This machine has been produced in California for 5 years in small volumes. In the USA, it is not characterized by demand, and therefore it is sent to the Middle Kingdom. Its cost is in the range of 19-25 million rubles, if we focus on the ruble equivalent. In addition, a top-end Executive variant is provided, which will cost more. There is an opportunity for additional money to establish effective protection against small arms.
Karlman King. The Chinese armored car was named after a historical figure – one of the rulers of the 9th century. Made the development in Italy. The off-road car participates in various exhibitions from time to time over a 5-year period.
There is currently no information on production, and the automaker’s website is not functioning. Apparently, this is due to the high cost of the car, which is offered for 143-286 million rubles.
The basis of off-road development is the F-450 Super Duty, and a 6.8-liter engine was taken from this car. The interior of the car is provided in a number of options – both for 4 and 6 seats. The basic equipment includes a coffee machine along with a mini-bar, a "starry sky", an audio system and other devices.
Summary. Sometimes manufacturers try to make projects that border on insanity come true. Usually experimental and surprising developments are produced in limited quantities, and therefore they become only museum exhibits.
