If you happen to’ve ever questioned how the wealthy are going to navigate a post-apocalyptic world, simply take a look at this loopy creation from French automotive builder Alexandre Danton. Beneath his French Chateau, Danton builds his wild creations, largely 6×6 off-roaders created from extremely luxurious vehicles. His newest is a 2005 Rolls-Royce Phantom 6×6 and it is about as insane because it sounds.
To construct this wild 6×6 Phantom, Danton and his crew actually chopped the rear finish off of the Phantom VII, simply behind the rear doorways. Then, they used an E65-generation BMW 7 Collection (which shares the identical primary chassis because the Phantom VII) to craft a brand new rear finish, with two axles and 4 wheels. They elongated the Phantom’s trunk and crammed it with off-roading gear, akin to anti-skid plates incase it will get caught and a jerry can. Danton additionally widened the Phantom’s monitor and fabricated customized aluminum fenders to suit the large 24-inch wheels and all-terrain tires.
Up entrance, the Max Max Phantom was given a push bar and yellow headlights and foglights, which match the roof-mounted yellow LED gentle bar, each nods to the yellow headlights of outdated French vehicles. It is now unlawful in France, as it’s in most nations, to have yellow headlights on a automotive newer than 1993 however it nonetheless seems cool.
Danton had the inside custom-made as properly. The entire Curler’s authentic leather-based was changed with shiny orange leather-based, the steering wheel airbag cowl was reupholstered in crocodile leather-based, and the armrests have been accomplished in snakeskin.
Surprisingly, the engine was left unchanged. The 6.7-liter naturally aspirated V12 now makes the identical 453 horsepower because it did again in 2005. The one mechanical distinction made to the powertrain was its exhaust, which clearly needed to be customized constructed, to match the added size of the automotive. Danton, not being one for subtlety, additionally added some gold flake to the engine cowl. That very same gold flake was additionally utilized to the brake calipers.
In a video from Supercar Blondie, you really get to see it transfer beneath its personal energy, even when it by no means goes quicker than idea car-speed. I am genuinely curious to see if it may possibly really off-road or if it was simply constructed for present. Judging by its low journey top, large wheels, and low-profile tires, I will assume the latter however I will give Danton the good thing about the doubt and hope that it may possibly really journey off the overwhelmed path a bit.
When society collapses and the zombies take over, this Rolls-Royce Phantom 6×6 is the form of factor wealthy folks will likely be driving round in. However it’s not the one one, as Danton has already constructed different 6×6 luxurious vehicles and is planning on doing the identical with a Lamborghini Urus. So in case you’re within the one p.c and are afraid of zombies, who to name.
