Arctic Trucks Toyota Hilux special - wanna ride?
Everybody knows the Top Gear's smashing episode Polar Special, when an extremely equipped Toyota Hilux together with Jeremy Clarkson behind the wheel have conquered the Magnetic North Pole. Now, the same specialist company which engineered the Hilux back then, is offering trips of between two and five days and longer expeditions through the wild landscape of Iceland in a similarly awesome Hilux.
The Reykjavik-based Arctic Trucks' fleet of vehicles includes two Toyota Hilux Invincible Double Cabs fitted with special features to meet the demands of tackling the country's tundra, glaciers, lava fields and mountains, including a set of giant 38-inch tyres that allow the vehicle to traverse deep snow and thin ice.
For everyday driving duties Toyota is offering a new 2010 revised model range, which includes Hilux's 2.5 D-4D engine charged with 20 per cent more power, and the high-performance 3.0 D-4D engine, which is now exclusively available in the Invincible Double Cab.
