The Militem Ferox Adventure is a Jeep Wrangler in an Italian suit
Prices start at around £70,000 before tax. Yowzers
“The perfect blend of American DNA and majestic Italian styling” says Militem, of the modified Jeep Wrangler it calls the ‘Ferox Adventure’, and for which it charges around £70,000 before tax.
That’s a lot to pay for a Wrangler, so what do you get for your money? Well, all Feroxes get 35-inch mud tyres, part-denim upholstery, ambient lighting, a carbon-fibre grille, new head- and tail-lights, uprated suspension and a dual-mode exhaust. The Adventure mainly adds “scratch resistant” bodywork, a roof rack, a snorkel and lots of twinkly LEDs.
As for engines, looks like Militem has left them well alone. You can either have the Wrangler’s 2.0-litre four or 3.6-litre V6, both paired with a standard eight-speed auto. Neither is fast, but both are powerful and torquey enough for scrabbling around off-road.
Militem tells us it has three dealers in Italy and one in Monaco – obviously – with more to be added soon. The Ferox is its third model after the Jeep Renegade-based Hero and RAM 1500-based Magnum.
