Dartz, known for its electric, armoured Jo-Mojo, has just released a series of sketches that preview an upcoming SUV called Nagel Dakkar.
The Nagel Dakkar is named after a Russian pilot who won the Monte Carlo Rally in 1912 and allegedly drove across the Sahara Desert a year later.
In its press release Dartz explains that the Nagel Dakkar is not just a new vehicle, it inaugurates an entirely new class of cars that is called BNUDS, or: Bespoke, Noble, Urban, Desert and Safety.
The Nagel Dakkar has an AMG-sourced twin-turbocharged V8 that makes 650 horsepower and 626 lb-ft of torque with a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, the V8 propels the car to a top speed that is electronically limited to 250kmh.
