From the people that once brought us the Prombron and subsequent variants of arguably one of the most unique armored cars in the world, Dartz is back with yet another creation: the Nagel Dakar. If the name strikes a bell, we’ll point out that the Nagel Dakar is named after Russian racing driver Andrew Nagel, the second place finisher at the 1912 Monte Carlo Rally.
Just like the Prombron, Dartz is wasting little time building up the Nagel Dakar, even going to the curious length of introducing it under a new class of cars it’s calling B.N.U.D.S.
So what exactly is B.N.U.D.S.? We’ll save that for information after the jump. For now, Dartz’s introduction of the Nagel Dakar comes with a pair of renderings to give us an idea on what the car looks like. Suffice to say, it looks exactly what Dartz has come to be known for in the industry: the creators of some of the most unique machineries in the world.
Find out more about the Nagel Dakar - and what B.N.U.D.S. means - after the jump.
Following in the introduction of the Dartz Mojo roadster, Russian automaker Dartz has released the first renderings of the Mojo’s "cooler" brother, the Jo-Mojo.
Built in collaboration with Gray Design, the Jo-Mojo is an electric roadster that comes with an aggressive design and highlighted by a chameleon paint finish, custom seats, and patented bullet wheels. In addition, the Jo-Mojo also has a unique retractable cover that features flexible solar cells created by former Soviet space manufacturers, Sidrabe. What the cover does is charge up the electric roadster while its sitting idly under the Cote d’Azur sun.
As far as performance numbers are concerned, the Dartz Jo-Mojo is powered by an electric motor that produces 80 horsepower and 90 lb/ft of torque. The numbers might look puny to some, but considering its purpose, the Jo-Mojo can still accelerate from 0-62 mph in 9.5 seconds and hit a top speed of 125 mph.
Just like the Mojo, the Dartz Jo-Mojo is expected to make its world debut at the 2012 Top Marques Monaco in April. Details of this little bullet-proof bug are set to be revealed then. For now, you can check out the first renderings of the Jo-Mojo, as well as a new presentation video of the electric roadster.
From the makers of the killer Kombat armored SUV, comes a new two-seater performance vehicle for people with a taste for the unconventional. Russian maker, Dartz, has announced the new MOJO, a reinterpretation of an earlier project that can now move with the times.
Not many details have been provided for the new Dartz Mojo, but we do know it will be powered by a gasoline powered rear mounted engine and will feature a glass roof that slides back to make room for both the driver and the passenger. No performance details have been provided sine the car technically hasn’t debuted yet, but we do know the MOJO will also get an electric brother called the JO-MOJO. The JO-MOJO will run on solar power, allowing people to get their green mojo on.
The new Dartz Mojo and Jo-Mojo model will make their world debut at the 2012 Top Marques Monaco (April 19-22).
