$35K Modified F150 VS $70K Ford Raptor | What's the better value?
[, Music ], you [, Music ]. In today's video, we are looking at a special edition, ram 1500 sedan with a six-figure price tag. I was really fascinated by this model, and I thought you guys would enjoy this as well, and all the details are coming up in a sec, but the company that makes this is the Italian brand as Nam, so they make bags luggage and other luxury goods with Carbon fiber and leather and under the ABS non-brand, is the as Nam automotive division, which is a boutique car builder that basically pimped out vehicles to make them super luxurious. The newest automotive trend seems to be a crossover, sedan style, and this is on the rise, especially after Mercedes announced their vision, Maybach ultimate luxury concept in China last month, which, I have to admit, looks pretty cool now, as Nam is following this trend with what they Call the as Nam a luxe - I think it's pronounced that way, if not sure - and I can only describe this as a super luxury sedan that is fitted onto the body of the Ram 1500. This also reminds me of the Cadillac Escalade EXT, where they kind of turn the Escalade into a pickup truck that was around from 2002 to 2013, but it only sold 70 thousand times in 12 years befre finally getting cancelled. So it wasn't too popular for the as Nam at 2x. You can get one for yourself for the starting price of two hundred twenty thousand year olds or around 260 thousand US dollars before taxes. If you're wondering about the name, a Lux is an acronym for all-terrain utility luxury. So let's have a look at all the features of this thing. I'M still trying to take in how it looks and it's something different and unique, but that's not always a good thing, but there are still some crazy luxury features that really attracted my attention. So officially this is a four seater sedan and from the front you can still see the distinct Ram look with the grille and headlights, but all the RAM badges are replaced with a tool X. There are also still the wheel-to-wheel side steps that are found on the original truck, but after the second doors, where things really change, there's a sloping roof and an extra rear window added and the crew cab has nearly doubled in size. This extra space allows for another sunroof and lots of rear passenger room. The chassis connections between the front and rear of the car were modified. Creating new attachment points to help strengthen the body and overall, the atul looks, is nineteen point six feet or almost 6 metres long, even though the crew cab is technically longer, there's less bedrooms, since the extra space is for passengers inside and the smaller trunk. Now has a slide up floor for easier access, and now, instead of seating, five people in the truck, you can only seat four people, two up front and two in the back. As far as I know, nothing has changed about the engine, which is the 5.7 liter. V8 Hemi that you get from the factory and the most recent specs for this were 395 horsepower, 410 pound-feet of torque and an 8-speed automatic transmission. The braking system has been improved with bigger discs, 16.5 inches up front and 15 inches in the rear and upgraded eight piston front calipers as well. Air suspension is added for a better ride. Quality and the entire cabin hasbeen soundproofed using specific materials to reduce noise and vibrations moving on to the inside. It'S basically a luxury lounge, with more features than a car would ever need go on are the fiat-chrysler plastics and all the cheap surfaces they have inside the cars, and these are replaced by full grain, nubuck, leather, Alcantara or wood. On almost every surface in the entire car, the rear passengers definitely have it best with pretty much unlimited legroom back there and a skylight over the back seats. There'S also a massive center console running right through the whole interior of the car, and this is made from blown steamed bleached oak inside that center console is an automatic lifting, Nespresso coffee machine with storage for different pause. In case you get bored of one flavor, [, Music ] and on the size of that center console is a glass drawer which holds one champagne, flute and two whiskey glasses on either side in the center armrest between the rear seats. There'S a 15 litre refrigerator that holds two bottles of champagne and other booze, keeping it nice and cold tired of drinking while you get chauffeured around well, that's okay, because there's an integrated, Xbox one hidden underneath the coffee machine. This connects to two 17 inch LED TV screens that swing down right from the roof. There are 10 speakers and a subwoofer connected to the TVs totalling an output of 1200 watts. Both the front and rear seats also control their own Sun, roofs and air conditioning systems. As well, unfortunately, there's not too many details released about what you get in the two front seats at the moment, so I'm not going to talk about those. As for pricing, as I've mentioned, it starts at 260 thousand US dollars, but customers can also upgrade and choose from a vast catalogue of different leathers woods finishes and other features. So basically, if you got the money, they will try to make it happen for you. But the only thing, I'm not sure, is how you're gon na get your ramp to and from Italy or if they supply the RAM for you and then send it over to you as Nam, is now taking orders for these. If you do happen to have 300 grand lying around anyways guys, that's the end of the video, I do have to say that these would be so sick to see in person, and I'm amazed that a company's pimping out a ram like this, the outside may be Kind of questionable, but the inside is definitely phenomenal. Hopefully you enjoyed the video. Let me know what you think of this thing and make sure to leave a like and subscribe for more Mopar content. I'Ll, see you next video thanks for watching [, Music, ]
