Ramsmobile unveils the Protos RM-X2, an SUV on tracks
North American carmaker Ramsmobile has come to the Frankfurt Motor Show 2019 with the Protos RM-X2, an extreme off-road vehicle boasting between 400 and 700 mm (15.6 – 27.3 inches) of ground clearance and a single tank-like track assembly instead of wheels.
By the look of it, the project takes the Hummer H1 as the starting point, but the scope of changes is too extensive, and the company denies comment. The official spec sheet says the car features a carbon-fiber monocoque cabin, as well as a part-titanium chassis. Most of the remaining body panels are made from composites.
The hardcore SUV will go on sale in as many as four different versions. The entry-level model will pack a 6.2-liter, twin-turbo V8 for around 1,000 hp (745 kW). Higher trims will introduce a single track with either electric or hydraulic drive. The standard acceleration time is reported to be 3.3 seconds, which frankly defies all reason.
As you can see from the video, Ramsmobile has some experience producing extreme off-road vehicles.
