Platune & Sand-X to Build World's Fastest Off-Roader
European-based luxury vehicle design and tuning firm Platune has teamed up with Sand-X, a Swiss company specializing in sand dune racers, to develop the world's fastest off-road vehicle. The Platune-Sand-X mobile (above), designed to be the Ducati of off-roaders, will be the safest, fastest, and most powerful ATV ever built, with giant front tires and a rear track. Available only in an exclusive limited edition, the Platune-Sand-X will be able to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in as little as 2.8 seconds and achieve a top speed of 185 km/h. While pricing has yet to be announced, we expect the vehicle will be extremely expensive; unsurprisingly, it has already stirred considerable intertest in the Middle East. The collaboration celebrates the two companies' "mutual quest for luxury, perfection, exclusiveness [and] an extraordinary driving experience."
