2011 Ural Snow Leopard Limited Edition
Ural limited edition 2010/2011 “Snow Leopard“
White cars and motorcycles indicate a special purpose. White cars are normally cargo cars. White motorcycles in former time were used by the police. Nevertheless the designers of vehicles from time to time see “white”. Therefore every 15 years white cars suddenly become fashionable, but these white vehicles disappear again very quickly from our streets . However, during the last years, they have not wanted to disappear. All of the premium car manufacturers obviously agreed to continue to offer their expensive limousines in white. And we have enthusiastically decided to follow them.
So as Porsche and Ferrari are now selling their sport cars in white, Ural must also meet this fashion. But Ural will not be completely white, Ural will be grey and white.
This winter 2010/11 there will be a new special edition:

Ural Snow Leopard
The snow leopard is a moderately large cat native to the mountain ranges of South Asia and Central Asia. It leads a largely solitary life. In Russia it lives in the mountains of Altai and around Lake Baikal.
Unfortunately the Snow Leopard is going to be a threatened species; they are hunted because of their highly valued grey-white coat.
The limited edition model Ural Snow Leopard for December 2010 is defined by its harmony between grey chassis parts and white body parts. It will be delivered in two versions:
Only five units will be produced as the noble Retro version. It is a very neat combination with a classical look. In variation to the standard Retro model all seats and the sidecar cover are kept in grey . The sidecar is equipped with baggage carrier, jerry can made of stainless steel, front bumper and additional head light. It is a combination for sunny days, ideal to exhibit, polish and love.
The more important version will be the Snow Leopard as a Ranger model, as it is a fully equipped winter combination. It can be fitted with either three Heidenau winter tyres or three standard Heidenau tyres, for regions with less hard winters. It has heated grips and a windshield for the driver. The sidecar is equipped with shovel, jerry can, luggage rack, additional head light, front bumper and a studded spare wheel (or standard spare wheel). There will only be about 20 units built for the European market
So it is high time to get a Snow Leopard from an Ural dealer!
