Video: Really Wild Jeep Gladiator With Three Drive Axles Went Under The Hammer
At the James Edition site, a custom Jeep Gladiator with three drive axles, 500 horsepower and Kevlar coating was put up for sale. Now the ad has been removed from the site - the publication Carscoops claims that this is due to the sale transaction. They asked for 175 thousand dollars (13.3 million rubles) for the pickup.
The car was built by So Flo Jeeps from Florida. The Gladiator, called SF6x6G, has been lengthened by an insert between the passenger compartment and the cargo platform: an additional axle is integrated in this place, equipped with a differential of its own design. The pickup's ground clearance has increased by 120 millimeters as a result of the reworking of the chassis, and the suspension travels reach 355 millimeters. The Gladiator is shod with 38-inch off-road tires.
- The stock engine was replaced with a V8 LS3 from the Chevrolet Corvette - it develops over 500 hp. At the same time, the front part of the pickup was also completely redone. It has been fitted with an exclusive bonnet, while the grille, bumper and other trims have given way to a single extravagant piece called the Grumper.
- The body of the pickup is coated with So Flo Jeeps, a proprietary blend of epoxy-based, damage-resistant materials and Kevlar fiber. The thickness of the coating is one and a half millimeters.
- Such a pickup is not the only one of its kind: the So Flo Jeeps company builds them on a special order, and the base price of the version with a gasoline engine is slightly less and is 140 thousand dollars. An alternative to the 500-horsepower V8 could be a 300-horsepower diesel.
Hennessey also has its own version of the Jeep Gladiator - a pickup called Maximus has only two axles, but its 6.2-liter V8 develops over 1000 hp.
