Nissan unveils two unique Gazelle concepts built specifically for the Middle East
Inspired by one of the most iconic animals to inhabit the desert sands, the fleet-footed Gazelle, Nissan has unveiled two exciting new concept cars – Gazelle Storm and Navara Gazelle at Dubai International Motor Show this week.
Nissan Gazelle Storm Concept
Exclusively developed for customers in the Middle East, the Gazelle Storm is a one-off concept vehicle, built on the iconic Nissan Patrol Super Safari, which offers an unparalleled off-road experience that can conquer anywhere.
The Gazelle Storm’s already great off-roading capability is taken to the next level with a higher approach angle and an on-board tire compressor, that fits in perfectly with the off-roading culture of the region. It provides the key aspects for dune bashing, as well as extreme overland experiences that adventure enthusiasts are thirsty for.
A master of swiftly maneuvering through multiple terrains, the Gazelle Storm Concept is powered by a 4.8L 6-cylinder powerhouse, it embraces a premium and tough interior reflected in striking Gazelle Storm leather and varying mood lights.
Ready to conquer the great outdoors, the concept car also comes with a built-in protective storage box for off-road gear and camping equipment, storage drawers, a barbecue holder and food and beverage fridge.
Thierry Sabbagh, Managing Director of Nissan Middle East, said: “The Middle East inspired the very creation of the Patrol Safari range. With its rugged exterior good-looks, and superb off-roading capabilities that can conquer any terrain, the car has gained legendary status in the popular culture of the region. At Nissan we understand the importance and enduring popularity of this iconic nameplate to the people of the Gulf and in response to that demand, Nissan set out to create this exciting concept car.”
Nissan Navara Gazelle Concept
Another vehicle specifically developed for the region on a true workhorse truck, is the Navara Gazelle concept. With its striking and unique look, the Navara Gazelle lets you work hard and play harder. With more emphasis on play hard, the Navara Gazelle Concept will give more sports and performance capabilities with its newly designed bumpers, tailgate spoilers, enhanced suspension shocks, built-in compressor and a two-inch lift kit with all terrain tires.
The 2.5-Litre Engines, giving customers a potential choice between diesel and gasoline, make the most of power and efficiency whether cruising the streets pf Dubai or driving on the desert dunes.
