MONZA: Those looking for a vehicle capable of moving with elegance on any terrain can set their sights on the Aznom Palladium.

Palladium is a unique and surprising automobile built with the intent to fill a rather interesting and exclusive niche.

The designers have already described the car as “hyper-limousine” as it unites the traditional characteristics of great luxury sedans with outstanding capabilities.

Designed and manufactured in Italy, Palladium wants to retrace the steps of famous Italian coachbuilders from the past when each vehicle was truly handmade with care and passion.

Each and every one of the ten cars on the production schedule will be tailor-made for the client after having chosen the customization of every detail.

We have produced this vehicle choosing artisanal manufacturing techniques that are almost lost today, such as panel beating and hand-crafting the body of the car, together with other technological solutions, engine builders, tanners, panel beaters, designers and engineers who have worked on this project are heirs to a tradition that has made Italian cars famous all around the world,” said Aznom’s founder Marcello Meregalli.

The name of the vehicle itself takes inspiration from the mansions of renowned Italian architect Andrea Palladio who is famous for using ancient Greek and Roman styles as the base for his creations.

The Aznom Palladium is just shy of 2 meters in height and almost 6 meters in length positioning it unquestionably within the limousine realm, while its non-conventional appearance confers a powerful image equal only to its mechanical strength.

Capable of traversing any terrain with two- or four-wheel drive, the Palladium is equipped with a 5.7 liter biturbo engine capable of delivering more than 700hp and a torque of 950Nm.

Pairing up with the engine is a latest generation 8-speed automatic transmission.

It features six airbags and the most recent Advanced driver-assistance Systems (ADAS) and both active and passive safety systems including the Advance Brake Assist, Hill Descent Control, Adaptive Cruise Control, Blind-stop Monitoring and Park Assist.
