Judging by the outstanding aura of the Jeep-based hot rod sitting before you, one could easily expect the thing to have been built in the US - after all, Americans love transforming Jeeps in all sorts of ways, drag racing monsters included. However, this Wrangler has been redefined over in France.
The machine has been given the kind of transformation that would make it belong in movies like Mad Max, albeit with the ground clearance appearing to confine the toy to the asphalt.

Note that the exposed engine compartment of the Jeep seems to accommodate a V8, while the chopped topped is mixed with a generous retractable roof.

And zooming in on the vehicle only reveals more quirky details, so we're inviting you to take the time.

The project has been built for Harley Davidson Valence France and comes from local specialist Danton Arts Kustoms - you can see the aficionado who leads the hostilities of the said developer sitting next to the toy.

And if the Jeep we have here seems like a wild build, you should check out some of the other projects that come from the said French specialist.

We're talking about contraptions that can trigger even the non-purists and that's because no brand is safe, regardless of its pedigree.

For instance, we showed you an air-cooled Porsche 911 that has received the hot rod treatment last year, with the Neunelfer now hosting a V8 in its nose.

Then there's the Lamborghini we featured earlier this fall. We're referring to an Espada, which has been given the (you've guessed it!) hot rod treatment. The original V12 motor seems to be in place, but the way in which the body was modified needs to be seen in order to be believed.

And the chopping adventures won't stop here, with more eccentric builds set to land soon.


This will definitely be my favorite build !
