Ramsmobile showed protos model in Frankfurt

Ramsmobile, an American company with Russian roots, introduced the Protos RM-X2 SUV in Frankfurt. The car, according to the creators, is able to move around any terrain, and the caterpillar mounted in the center with a hydraulic drive helps in this.

Ramsmobile calls its development a “multi-purpose hypercar” and the first representative of the “Ultimate Utility Vehicle” (UUV) segment. Apparently, the Protos RM-X2 is a heavily redesigned Hummer H1, but this is not directly mentioned.

The design of the SUV is based on carbon fiber monocoque, the suspension and steering elements are made of high-strength titanium alloy BT23, and the external panels are made of composite. As an option, the body can be strengthened with carbon fiber or Kevlar, and the glass can be replaced with bulletproof ones.

Protos RM-X2 will be offered in several versions: Ascetic, Devil, God and Ramsider. The “ascetic” version will be equipped with a 6.2 LT5 V8 engine with two compressors and a capacity of about 1000 horsepower. It will be the lightest and fastest SUV in the family.

The “diabolical” Protos will receive a central track (it can have an electric or hydraulic drive), 20-24 inch wheels, gold trim and six seats. Details on the version of God and Ramsider will appear later.

In addition to the LT5 V8, the Protos engine range will include the 6.6 Duramax diesel. It is also planned to release a version on “batteries”. The SUV will be equipped with hydropneumatic suspension with laser height control, robotic door drive, night vision system and thermal imager. For a surcharge, the buyer can get a winch and a package of a smoker with an electronic hookah.

Hookahs are the main business of the Ramsider registered in Albuquerque, together with the Ramsmobile part of the Rams Group. The company has Russian roots, and it started its activity just from tuning “Hammers”.
