Aznom Palladium is a sedan-SUV that wants to steal customers from premium brands Mercedes-Benz and BMW. The model comes with a unique design in the industry.
The manufacturer calls this model “hyper-limousine” and takes into account its ability to cross any surface, thanks to an intelligent all-wheel drive system. The bizarre design is justified by the fact that its base is the American RAM 1500 pickup. The same model was based on the Atalux, produced by Aznom in 2018. However, Palladium offers luxury on another level.
The front appears to have been taken from Rolls-Royce. It features a generous surface grille with vertical chrome slats and interior lighting, flanked by narrow LED headlights.
From the outside you can see the plastic protections that appear on the fenders, but also the chrome accents, a bizarre combination of elements that suggest elegance and others that are an indication of off-road ability.
The manufacturer speaks of a “horizon window”, located in the C-pillar. It allows passengers to look outside without being exposed.
An inclined telescope and sturdy lines in the rear complete the profile of the new Aznom Palladium.
Instead of the classic trunk, Aznom has chosen the solution of a drawer with opening parallel to the floor.
The Aznom Palladium hyper-limousine has a luxurious interior
The edge of the hyper-limousine confirms the influences of the RAM 1500. However, pretentious materials such as leather, wood and aluminum appear. A touch screen located in the driver’s door controls the ambient lighting system, the cabin refrigerator and the trunk.
Those who sit in the backrest will be pampered by all the comfort that a classic sofa can offer, because this is how the cushion bench looks there. The leather sofa is flanked by drawers where drinks can be stored.
On board are a Harman Kardon sound system, two Microsoft Surface Pro X tablets, and a handcrafted gold and palladium clock. The clock can be transferred from the car to the living room, for example.
Under the hood of the Palladium appears a 5.7-liter V8 engine with two turbochargers. The unit develops 710 horsepower and 950 Newton of torque and is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The car needs 4.5 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h. Its top speed is 210 km / h.
Palladium weighs no less than 2,650 kilograms, despite the manufacturer choosing the carbon fiber solution for the hood and roof. To stop such a mass, the manufacturer installed a high-performance Brembo brake system with 408mm discs on the front axle and 380mm discs on the rear axle. The model is equipped with 22-inch aluminum wheels.
Only ten of these cars will be built. Aznom expects orders from China, Russia, the Middle East and the United States.
