Vilner Gives The Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT A Unique British Special Air Service Theme
Published September 24, 2016
We are aware that Vilner knows their stuff. However, no one saw their latest project coming. With many cars being customized on particular themes, no one would have guessed this particular one as it is the first of its kind.
Antonio Brown’s famed Rolls-Royce Wraith is brilliant, but this one by Grand Cherokee makeover by Vilner is impressive by all standards. Originality is celebrated but their ability to combine it with skill is to be praised. Though the identity of the owner has been hidden, we complement him for the Special Forces theme idea. SAS logo, as well as their slogan, are clearly seen on the front seat headrests.
Not much has been done to the car’s exterior and this we think, is just fine. With 475 horsepower to contend with, 6.4 liter HEMI V8, we doubt the owner would want more. That, coupled with a top speed of 160 mph and a translation of 0 to 60 mph in less than five seconds, make this ride aggressive enough.
What we’d like to know is what British Special Air Service Commanders think of this new makeover. Exteriors aside, Vilner has made other less subtle changes to the interior. This Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT has been pampered for sure with even the ceiling being retrimmed in red Alcantara with black high-quality material to match the A-pillars, seat bases, and seat belt buckles.
Clearly, the usually hard and plastic transmission tunnel and dashboard looked out of place as expected and they were replaced with carbon fiber inserts. The black and red theme is carried throughout the interior. According to Vilner, the red detonates the SAS missions.
With ‘Who dares Wins’ embroidered on the front headrests as well as the insistence on the SAS theme, one can only assume that whoever this Jeep belongs to, the SAS is of great importance to him.Other than that, we believe that Vilner deserves a pat on the back for a job well-done.
