Jeep have gone insane recently, whilst celebrating their 50th anniversary they’ve created a Wrangler with a 697BHP hemi V8 under the bonnet. The Wrangler has always gone under the radar here in the UK, where we choose to buy British and get a Land Rover Defender instead. But the Wrangler is still a great car, you can still clearly see the lines of the original WW2 Willys Jeep underneath all the modern stuff. For their 50th anniversary Jeep created this monster called the Trailcat a modified version of their standard Wrangler.
The wheel base for the Trailcat had to be stretched 12 inches to incorporate the 6.2 litre supercharged V8, this added to the massive 39.5inch tyres gives the vehicle an aggressive stance not seen from the range of UK off roaders. The body has been slightly adapted as well with a shorter windscreen and an added roll cage the Trailcat has a truly menacing stance. Jeep have also taken the seats from the Dodge Viper for the Trailcat so you can travel through the mountains in leather and comfort. Production for the Trailcat is unlikely as Jeep wants to emphasize the modification possibilities for the Wrangler
