It is approaching 4 years (where did that time go?!) since we embarked on the Grenadier journey to build a truly robust and reliable working 4X4.
I believe we have remained true to our initial aims to produce an ‘honest’ off roader. There have been many temptations along the way to indulge in design ‘frills’, curvaceous corners and fancy electronic gadgets. We have done our best to be restrained and instead have focussed our energies on the rugged chassis, the finest gearbox, an engine with real torque and power.
The car is probably ‘more’ than we envisaged four years ago. Some aspects necessarily so, as we must meet a myriad of ever-changing legislations and some things because we have worked with some of the world’s finest suppliers (e.g. BMW, Magna Steyr, ZF, Carraro) to take the vehicle capability further.
I have now spent real time driving the prototype. For me it is a genuine joy to drive both off and on road. In my book it is a bloody good car! And puts a smile on my face every time I see it.
