Aznom has released a new photo gallery of the Palladium, which has to be one of weirdest vehicles to have come out this year.
A mix between a pickup truck, an SUV and a sedan, it is based on the Ram 1500 and packs a 5.7-liter V8 that’s mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drive and has been significantly upgraded by the Italian company.

Revisions include two BorgWarner turbos, different pistons, rods and valve springs, rebalanced camshaft and drive shaft, tri-metallic head gasket, more powerful fuel injectors and a redesigned exhaust system . Furthermore, the engine can work on half the cylinders under certain conditions, thus offering improved fuel economy.
With a total output of 710 PS (700 HP / 522 kW) and 950 Nm (701 lb-ft) of torque, the Palladium needs 4.5 seconds to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) and reaches a limited top speed of 210 km/h (130 mph).
Stopping power is provided by Brembo brakes, with 408×34 mm ventilated discs and six-piston calipers up front and 380×28 mm rear discs and four-piston calipers at the rear. The suspension has also been redesigned, with the shock absorbers being made exclusively for the Palladium, which sits 30 mm (1.2 in) closer to the ground compared to the original chassis set-up.
Production of the Palladium will be capped at ten units, with pricing to be announced. Aznom expects the customers to come from the Middle East, Russia, China and the United States.
The Grand Tour’s Richard Hammond has always been a fan of American muscle cars and just so happens to own a stunning 1967 Ford Mustang. Fittingly, it was Hammond, rather than James May or Jeremy Clarkson, that was invited by Ford UK to test out the latest variant of the Mustang, the new Mach 1.
Ford is promoting the Mustang Mach 1 as being the best-handling Mustang to ever be sold in Europe and the UK and this is one aspect of the driving experience that Hammond covers in his review. The seasoned journalist says that thanks to the car’s utilization of magnetically-adjustable dampers, it thrives in the corners and feels very planted.

Much of Hammond’s test was conducted along a banked circuit at Ford UK’s testing facility, but he did have the opportunity to test the car around a figure eight, where he was able to kick out the car’s rear end.
The engine of the Mustang Mach 1 is a 5.0-liter naturally-aspirated V8 that’s largely the same as the one in the Mustang GT. Interestingly, whereas U.S. spec models produce 480 hp, those to be sold in the Old Continent ‘only’ deliver 453 hp, which is a bit of a shame.
Fortunately, there are no styling differences between Euro-spec models and those sold in the States. This means the Mach 1 still sports unique 19-inch alloy wheels and is available with eight body color, strip and contrast-line combinations.
