Its rugged looks can be made even more outstanding with an optional SwingTop canvas roof, underride protection, and some non-typical off-road front, side and rear claddings. It may also come with a specific roof spoiler, performance steering and chassis as well as have amazing horsepower.

The ADAM ROCKS S may be powered with the 110 kW/150 hp ECOTEC engine that delivers 220 Nm of torque and lead to a 210 km/h top speed. It takes just 8.5 seconds to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h. But then, it is also capable of going from 80 to 120 km/h in 5th gear in only 7.9 seconds. Transmission of power is done through a short ratio 6-speed gearbox.

Even with a very sporty profile, the ADAM ROCKS is actually very fuel efficient.

Its dynamic performance chassis has been lowered by 15 millimeters compared to the ADAM ROCKS.

Getting through winding roads is fun with the vehicle’s direct and responsive steering. The vehicle can be safely tested to its limits with its high-performance brakes and its ESP system that can be switched off. The ADAM ROCKS S has the assistance systems that have made the other ADAMS models very popular. For instance, the Side Blind Spot Alert is an option.

When changing lanes, the driver is warned of an impending collision with the use of ultrasonic sensors. An object on collision course can be detected and a LED warning shows up in the corresponding exterior door mirror. The Side Blind Spot Alert functions while the car’s speed ranges from 11 km/h to 140 km/h. In addition, Side Blind Spot Alert is available as part of Advanced Park Assist for euro 580. What it does is automatically navigate the ADAM ROCKS S into a space.
