Campers come in all shapes and sizes, but rarely have they been so boldly designed as this Darc Mono based on the Iveco Daily 4×4 from the German manufacturer Darc.
Darc describes the Darc Mono as ‘the ultimate expedition car’ and that doesn’t seem to lie. From every angle, the four-wheel drive variant of the Iveco Daily based Darc Mono looks like a motorhome that knows how to devour the most impassable paths with ease. In its own words, Darc puts more than 1,000 man hours into converting the Iveco Daily 4×4 into this fierce off-road camper.
The 6.7 meter long Darc Mono has a 180 hp and 430 Nm strong Iveco four-cylinder diesel under the hood, which is linked to an automatic transmission with eight gears. Darc gives the Mono an adaptive chassis developed together with suspension specialist KW Automotive, which ensures, among other things, great ground clearance. 37-inch off-road tires are folded around the wheels and there is a winch at the front that can handle up to 10 tons of weight.
No camper van without a habitable interior. The ‘living space’ with a headroom of 2.05 meters is built around a monoque made entirely of carbon fiber. According to Darc, the isolation is of an unprecedented level and we have to believe that. There is, among other things, a kitchenette on board, a loft bed for two people, a small bathroom and various storage options. For example, under the ‘living room’ there is a storage space where things such as a barbecue and tools can be stored. The camper has an oven on board, has a water tank with a capacity of 230 liters and even has solar cells.
According to Darc, the interior can be completely adapted to the wishes of the customer and the buyer can choose from more than 2,000 material and color combinations. A 4K beamer and an extensive 5.1 audio system provide additional audiovisual entertainment. That is also allowed, because the Darc Mono has a basic starting price of no less than € 295,000.
