A fierce-looks and futuristic six-wheeled ATV

By applying technology that is not extraordinary, great ideas are developed to drive transportation forward. This can be seen as done by a Perth-based company named Ferox Advanced Vehicles Corporation when it implements some big ideas on the vehicle that is being made by it. This unusual vehicle concept briefly displays the figure of a six-wheeled ATV (All-Terrain Vehicle).

Well, the physical appearance of the vehicle which was later given the name 'Ferox Azaris' looks like a futuristic car that appears in science fiction films.

Remarkably, in addition to having six wheels are also equipped with the new fluid-drivetrain appliance combined with a BMW Motorrad R1200 engine in the back of its frame, with its shaft drive unit intact. And where the wheel would normally be mounted, Ferox has mounted a pump unit instead, so the motorcycle motor is entirely devoted to driving that pumps.

Interviewed by CarAdvice, CEO of Ferox Advanced Vehicles, Troy Wheeler, began to explain 'fluid' and 'hydraulic' technology. "Typically hydraulics run between 3,000 and 15,000 psi. They're high-pressure, they tend to be inefficient, they need big cooling reservoirs for de-foaming, and they're very jerky," Wheeler explained.

Wheeler also said the liquid drive material offers big savings and an electric motor equivalent to a weight of 30 kg. "The whole system is very responsive - and that is a big difference to traditional hydraulics. Usually, they are quite jerked. But our system has a high startup torque, similar to an electric motor," Wheeler said later.

As reported by Newatlas, with the use of wheels mounted directly on its four motors, the company said that Azaris will be able to handle 678 Nm of torque per wheel and there are larger motors capable of providing larger torque of up to 1,152 Nm.

Although the Azaris has not been fully tested in off-road environments, the six-wheeled vehicle prototype has driven smoothly on the rough surface testing. Currently, there are no plans to bring the Azaris to the market, so for those of you who want to bring this unique vehicle, it seems like you have to wait very long, and of course at a very expensive price.
Indeed, the production process of the Azaris is not cheap and is rumored to reach $500,000. The manufacturing process is entirely made by hand, of course making the production process slow and expensive.
This six-wheeled vehicle has made its debut at the Top Marques 2019 in Monaco which runs from 30 May to June 2, 2019. Instead of producing cars for the market, the Ferox team tried to explore further technology and find new partners to help its vehicle development. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | FEROX | NEW ATLAS | GATSBYONLINE.COM | CARADVICE]
