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).
If there ever were two off-the-wall companies that we wanted to get to work together, it would be the people from Dartz and Gray Design. Known for their peculiarities as much as for their penchant for unbridled luxury, both Dartz and Gray Design have become favorites of ours in their own uproarious way. So imagine our surprise when we found out that the two have announced the release of the Dartz Prombron Nagel, the world’s first armored sportback SUV that is capable of pulling yachts.
The Nagel is actually named after one Andrey Nagel who, together with Vadim Mikhaloff, drove a C24/55 Monaco RussoBalt sports car at the Monte Carlo Rally back in 1911. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that the Prombron Nagel was named after the legendary racer on the 100th anniversary of his Monte Carlo Rally victory. The car was designed by Gray Design’s very own Eduard Gray who used the platform of the Dartz Prombron and, with the help of the world’s safest KAPSULA technology, made it up to 15 meters in length and capable of pulling as much as five tons. In terms of design, it’s everything we thought it would look like if Dartz and Gray Design teamed up for a project, which means that it looks completely out-of-the-ordinary with odd angles, strange contours, and plenty of bulletproofing to go around. Performance numbers aren’t out yet, but word has it that underneath that hood, the Nagel will pack 2,000 horsepower with a projected top speed of 155 mph. Top speed seems kind of low so hopefully we will be pleasantly surprised when the figures are released.
From the minds of two companies that are far from conventional, the Dartz Prombron Nagel is the personification of an armor-carrying, 2,000-horsepower monster. Heck, it even looks the part.
