As the fully armored doors open 90 degrees like a helicopter, there are six seats made from exoskeletons, with folding rear seats ensuring huge space for equipment, robots, laptops, radios and more.

In front of the seats there are intelligent consoles to facilitate command, control and management of the vehicle. You can quickly configure drones for launch and have a deployable ramp for easy access to equipment on and off the Magnus. Its superior crossfire protection and improved maneuverability enable faster and more precise troop operations.

“Magnus has been created for tactical operations, including military and national security purposes,” Al Blooshi said, noting that the vehicle has been designed to overcome the harshest and most challenging environments.

Magnus offers enhanced protection with Level II ballistic and mine protection throughout the lower body by leveraging advanced composite materials. Its elegance and latest technology combine hypercar designs with maximum performance on and off the road.

“The vehicle has been designed for a faster, smarter and greener tomorrow,” said Al Blooshi.

It has an AI-powered platform for a virtual assistant that offers inputs like predictive alerts, route optimization, and more.

“This feature is useful during military missions,” Al Blooshi stressed.

Al Blooshi revealed that plans are underway to launch a street-legal vehicle for commercial use by 2025.

“It will be called Magnum. It will be for ordinary people to drive. It will be slightly smaller and have different specifications than the Magnus, which is a concept vehicle for military purposes. There is much more to come.”
