In the automotive field we have seen in the last few years countless categories of cars trying to frame increasingly multi-faceted vehicles in well-defined segments. For us Atulux represents a new concept of car for luxury mobility, a vehicle with generous dimensions able to face rough terrain that would be a limit for any sedan or luxury van, moving in an interior environment equipped with every kind of comfort.
Atulux (acronym of All Terrain Utility Luxury) was built on the basis of the RAM 1500 expertly modified to become a three-volume sedan. The choice fell on the vehicle of the Dodge that ensures a solid structure and that, thanks to the HEMI V8 5.7litre engines from 401cv, offers adequate performance to the level of the vehicle.
The body modification work was carried out by specialized battalions who, on the aesthetic base created by Aznom, recreated the union of the two front volumes with the rear third, redefining all the lines in a harmonious way. The chassis connections between the front and rear of the car were also revised, creating new attachment points to strengthen the body. Even the braking system has been modified to improve the performance of the standard, the front discs are now 420mm with 8-pump caliper while the rear has been used a 380mm disc.
The result is an imposing 4-seater sedan, just under six meters long, capable of providing extreme driving comfort, thanks to the air suspension that is able to filter the roughness of the ground and to vary the vehicle’s trim.
If from the outside it is the grandeur of the car that amazes, once you board the exceptional habitability becomes a characterizing element.
The interior of Atulux has been set up as a luxury lounge able to guarantee maximum travel comfort with particular attention to rear passengers. The interiors are made of full-grain nubuck leather with a vintage effect, embroidered with a three-dimensional wave pattern to characterize some details such as the back of the ceiling and the seat mirrors. Details in alcantara cream cover part of the front cielino and the ebanisterie. A thorough soundproofing of the entire cockpit was also carried out using specific materials to reduce noise and vibrations, further increasing the comfort on board. Due to the generous volume increase of the passenger compartment, an additional system controlled by the rear seats was added to the standard air conditioner in order to better manage the climate on board.
The interior spaces, usable as a relaxation or work area, are finished with quality materials and present a use of space able to recreate intimate and luxurious environments. The element that strongly characterizes the interior of the car is the central nautical-inspired tunnel. It is made of blown steamed bleached oak to guarantee the ergonomics necessary for the occupants and to create a fluid and harmonious element useful to contain all the gadgets that Atulux is equipped with.
In the center armrest of the rear seats there is a 15-liter refrigerator that can hold 2 bottles of champagne, while in the 2 side arms, also in wood, there are 1 flûte and 2 whiskey glasses on each side. In the central part of the tunnel, guests can use a coffee bar with 2 crystal bottles for fine spirits and 2 other whiskey glasses.
Also in the tunnel but behind the rear seats is an automatic lifting Nespresso coffee machine with a selection of pods of different tastes.
Two 17pole-to-ceiling LED monitors allow you to watch both the TV and a DVD or play with the X-Box housed in the terminal part of the tunnel.
The full digital audio system consisting of 10 speakers + subwoofer for a total of 1200watts is connected to the x-box, the radio and the digital player for a high quality listening experience.
Atulux is completely customizable by following the customer’s requests that he can create his own vehicle choosing from a vast catalog of leathers, woods and finishes. Source: Aznom Automotive
