Does the Bentley Bentayga, Rolls-Royce Cullinan, Mercedes-Maybach GLS, BMW X7 and Range Rover SVAutobiography seem too fancy and not manly enough for your tastes? Well, it’s your lucky day because Aznom has a very big blue pill to cure your itch: it’s called the Palladium, and it is an Italian coach-built sedan-truck with a hard-to-swallow design.
Based on the Ram 1500, it features bespoke bodywork, with a Rolls-Royce-like grille up front, flanked by a pair of slim LED headlights. It also has muscular shoulders, tiny windows in the rear pillars, inspired by old American cars, and a busy-looking rear design.

All 10 customers of the Palladium, because that’s how many units Aznom will build, will have a wide selection of upholstery options to choose from, as well as wood trim and aluminum accents that will dress the interior. Some of the highlights include the liquor cabinet, on-board refrigerator, pillows to make those long journeys more pleasant and stuff such as ambient lighting, multi-zone climate control, premium audio and infotainment system.
A bi-turbo 5.7-liter V8 powers the Palladium, making around 700 HP, according to the company, and 701 lb-ft (950 Nm) of torque. This allows it to hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.5 seconds and a 130 mph (210 km/h) limited top speed. Nonetheless, as pretty much everything is customizable, the engine can become punchier.
So, interested in seeing how the Palladium came to be? The following video will give you an inside look, so this would be a good time to grab a snack, because it’s almost 12 minutes long.
