At Nihilo Concepts, we pride ourselves in being able to build anything, we love innovating and coming up with cool stuff. A couple of years ago we decided we needed an urban assault vehicle for Nihilo, something that would test our skills at fabrication and represent the soul of the company. We have always liked the looks of those Dakar chase trucks, you know the ones, all-terrain, can carry lots of stuff and go anywhere at high speed, so that was our inspiration.
The crew at Nihilo attends lots of MX events throughout the year, and we have been setting up at Loretta Lynn’s and Mini Os for almost 20 years. The idea was to build a vehicle that was four-wheel drive and could carry Nihilo parts and swag out into the pits and outlying areas at the races. Something that would catch the eye and imagination and just make you smile.
Let us know what you think, we have never seen one like it and it is all custom made, it sure was lots of fun to build, we hope you like it.
Keep an eye out for our Mini Dakar Chase Truck at the races, if you see us chances are we will be tossing out T-shirts, hats and other Nihilo swag so be ready!
