Supercar Blondie Calls Ram 1500-Based Aznom Palladium One of The “Coolest Cars in the World”
What is a hyper-limousine truck, you might ask? The Ram 1500 truck inspired the new Aznom Palladium “hyper-limousine,” and it looks insane. Supercar Blondie got a first look at the hyper-limo, ultra-luxury-sedan, slash Ram truck called the Palladium, and it is about as ludicrous as it sounds.
The Aznom Palladium was inspired by the Ram 1500
Before diving into the Aznom Palladium hyper-limousine, what does the Ram 1500 truck have to do with anything? According to Mopar Insiders, the people at Aznom loved the Ram 1500 Limited pickup truck so much it inspired this sedan. The Palladium is somehow inspired by the half-ton Ram 1500, making this “hyper-limo” even crazier.
“Those looking for a vehicle capable of moving with elegance on any terrain have their wish granted: Aznom Palladium.”
The Aznom Palladium is a lot of things rolled into one. The designer wanted it to be a unique “and surprising automobile” meant to fill a “rather interesting and exclusive niche.” Given the number of people who want a part-hyper-limo, part-Ram-1500, exclusive limousine, that makes sense.
Supercar Blondie got a first look at the Aznom Palladium and it does have a lot of Ram 1500 truck qualities
While it seems the Palladium is a bit hard to nail down, Aznom wanted it that way. Described as a “hyper-limousine,” it has the characteristic of a luxury sedan and the capability of a truck. Some of the main aspects of the vehicle include that it is comfortable, has quality materials, plenty of space inside, and is also a reliable car.
Supercar Blondie called the Palladium the world’s first hyper SUV, while some call it a hyper sedan. Whatever it is, the Aznom Palladium is pretty cool. Manufactured in Italy, the sedan is handmade by the company and will be bespoke for each client. Only 10 of the vehicles are slated to be made, making it easier to customize each one.
The Palladium is almost 20 feet long and seven feet high, making it truly part sedan and part limo. When looking at the vehicle’s exterior, a lot of the Ram truck shines through. The front end resembles a truck front end. Even the doors, mirrors, and running boards look Ram 1500 inspired. It might be a hyper-sedan, but it looks a lot like a truck at the basis of the design combined with a Rolls-Royce.
Whatever the Aznom Palladium is, it is a ridiculously cool car
The Aznom Palladium has two or four-wheel drive for whatever the owner might need to do, thanks to the Ram 1500’s 4WD system. It comes with a 5.7L bi-turbo engine with more than 700 hp and 950 Nm of torque. Plus, it has a top speed of 131 mph and a zero to 62 mph time of 4.5 seconds. That’s pretty close to the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX performance truck.
Thanks to the truck inspiration, the automaker says that it fits in well in the limousine segment. It has a “broad presence and powerful stance, “esthetic expression” of its mechanical strength.” Even if its identity is a bit chaotic, the Aznom Palladium truly is part hyper-limo, part Rolls-Royce sedan, and part Ram 1500 truck.
