MILITEM in Italy just launched their upgraded urban survival vehicle and we think it’s ideal for the future Hunger Games: Cost Of Living Edition. Just check out the specs;
It comes with a 6.4-litre V8 engine, so plenty of power and torque to shift hazards out of the way.
The exclusive braking system, totally redefined by MILITEM in collaboration with Powerbrake is the jewel in crown of the FERŌX500, says MILITEM. Up front are 370×34 mm slotted, semi-floating discs with radial expansion and contraction featuring 72 ventilation channels and a surface coating. I mean, how can you get by with just 50 ventilation channels?
Teamed with the discs are turned aluminum radial calipers machined from billets with internal fluid crossovers and 6 pistons crafted from stainless steel.
The new, Black 22“x9,5” rims are another exclusive MILITEM design. The rims were created especially for the FERŌX500 using innovative Hybrid Forged technology, that is light and hard-wearing but that can bear heavy loads. The captivating, sporty look is emphasized by the satin-black finish.
Road tires measuring 325/50R22 can be fitted, as can All-Terrain 35×12,50/R22 sets. In alternative, clients can opt for MIILITEM Black Edition 20”x10” rims mounted with All-Terrain 35×12,5/R20 tires.
YOU CAN PLAY TUNES ON THE EXHAUST
The new Black performance Dual Mode exhaust system was engineered in-house by MILITEM and is fitted with 4 tailpipes and valves. These can be activated via a dashboard button to match that sound to the setting and route taken.
The seats have been redesigned by MILITEM and have a racing derived shell shape, with incorporated headrests. The ergonomic seats result in superb comfort and the most efficient driving position possible, meaning that the driver is fully in control and all the switches and commands are close to hand. The hand-fitted nappa leather and ALCANTARA® finish is in contrasting colors sporting MILITEM stitching.
The leather finish can also be extended to the dashboard, instrument panel, steering wheel boss, gear knob, door panels and luggage compartment lining, pairing well with the carbon-fiber and all-black inside. Another MILITEM first is the interior pack in glossy carbon-fiber: door handle inserts, the steering wheel and console come in carbon-fiber.
Fuel Saver technology in the engine management deactivates half the cylinders when maximum power output is not required, meaning that consumption levels drop. The large airscoop on the hood works to cool the engine. Different drive modes can be selected in 4WD and, concerning specific settings for off-road, safety features, infotainment and connectivity on are the same as the original versions.
MILITEM FERŌX500 maintains the same versatile characteristics of the Wrangler 392, with a body-colored hard top that comes in 3 sections to make it easier to remove. It is also possible to have an electric soft top fitted, teamed with removable rear windows to deliver a wider panorama and a cabriolet drive!
The MILITEM starts at € 149.500 plus VAT and IE will be happy to see this fine transport being used to ferry guests to their hotel at BIBA 2023. Well, we can dream.
