We have become all too familiar with sports cars getting facelifts or power boosts that even these crazy makeovers don’t look too surprising anymore. However recently, there has been a growing number of tuning companies who have devoted their time and effort to make 6x6 variants of vehicles in various body styles. Now it looks like a new trend is starting amongst tuning companies.
It’s not a common occurrence for automakers and tuning companies to create these super rare 6x6 vehicles. It’s even more infrequent for them to actually get it right. Mercedes-Benz is by far the only automaker known to make 6x6 variants straight from their factories. They have created the wild and crazy beauty that is the G63 AMG 6x6, very popular and loved by the public and the ultimate off-road buddy.
Then there’s Kahn Design’s Flying Huntsman Concept – a 6x6 coach-built special edition based on a Land Rover Defender – and all its other odd concoctions from a Lamborghini Urus 6x6 to a Smart Fortwo 6x6. Now, joining the line-up is a 6x6 Jeep Wrangler.
A Chinese custom car manufacturer called G. Patton has finally made what used to be a 6x6 Jeep Wrangler fantasy into a reality. The gods must be in every 6x6 fan’s favour so that we now have a real life three-axle version of the Wrangler. How cool is that? It has been quite a while since fantasies of a 6x6 version of the Wrangler started to surface, so it is quite surprising that it took this long for a said version to finally materialize.
G. Patton’s 6x6 Wrangler is in particular a handcrafted Tomahawk, an off-road beast. To create this brilliant masterpiece, G.Patton had to cut a Wrangler behind its C-pillar. A pickup bed was then added that was then covered by a top.
There hasn’t been any confirmation of how much power this 6x6 Wrangler carries but reports say that it will come with a supercharged 3.6-liter V6 engine. To make it look meaner, this particular Wrangler comes with a furrowed brow over its headlights, a roof rack and a winch on its grille guard. It really looks like a very legit off-road monster ready to conquer China’s terrains.
There might seem to be a slight issue on the name G. Patton since originally its moniker was first transfixed on the US Specialty Vehicle Rhino GX sold in China. But it looks like there’s no stopping this bad boy in competing with the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG and the Flying Huntsman. The only thing stopping overseas fans may be that you might have to move in to China to get your hands on this baby.
