ENG. Abdulaziz Alagil | مهندس عبدالعزيز العقيل
Eng. Abdulaziz Alagil the founder and CEO of BandriaAuto, lived around the biggest desert in the world “the empty quarter” all his life. Being an ardent enthusiast and with his out of the box thinking Eng. Abdulaziz found himself very innovative and started conceptualizing the off road vehicles while studying for Mechanical Engineering at Syracuse University.
Eng. Abdulaziz started his explorative journey looking for the best off road racers and builders in the market to learn more about these off road monsters and how can he make a difference. After collecting all the information needed, he started the design of the incredible R2F with the support of the best brains in the market. His team had over 30 year experience in building off road race cars. They were working closely with NASSA to build the off road rover that will be sent to the moon made.
After finishing all R2F designs, BandriaAuto signed with several professors to review all the designs and conducted final element analysis and some more computer simulation.
The R&D and designing took around 2 years and the manufacturing & assembly took another 3 years. All these were a dream of a person who loves off-road, artistic looking objects which came up with R2F which was supposed to be one of a kind until many people and the Saudi military started to push BandriaAuto to build them one.
Our R2F was a dream journey, and we will continue to deliver newer more innovative designs.
Desert has the most complex, unpredicted rough terrain, hence our R2F was designed around the roughest and capable of handling the worst situation. Simply, you must not think or compare the production cars with its mechanism that everyone is familiar with, to our real off road car. It is just like the difference between a commercial airplane and a jet-fighter. Reintroduced the car mechanism with a new and different way of functioning for dynamics, steering system, suspension system, drive train, hub assembly etc. to overcome the abuse of the off-road rough terrain and achieve the optimum performance.
Used the best of everything from every aspects. R2F can go through a series of 1 meter high bumps in a high speed with amazing comfort, handling and control !! We gathered the best team and the best manufactures with 30+ years’ experience in the off road rally world to come up with this car. This required an intensive R&D, testing and data collection, patience, knowledge, experience, being away from business people and closer to scientist. We are giving a very highly engineered, light indestructible off road beast.
