Tokyo 2007 Preview: Daihatsu Mud Master-C

The Mud Master-C Concept from Daihatsu looks like a Dakar rally van that’s been left in the wash too long. It’s a true truck with a body-on-frame design, though. It’s generous ride height and copious degrees of approach and departure angles mean that the Mud Master-C can actually go places while leaving an eency-weency footprint in its wake.

Daihatsu says that there are three gullwing doors on the concept, though they’re really hatches, one on each side and one on the back. The truly neat thing about the Mud Master-C Concept is that it’s configurable. For instance, the mountain bike support model developed with professional cyclist Raita Suzuki (shown at right) is configured to carry a pair of bikes, but the concept can also be configured as an open bed truck capable of carrying an ATV or even a crane!

Check out more info and Daihatsu’s press release after the jump, and be sure to browse the gallery to see the Mud Master-C’s unique features.
