Jeep and Harley-Davidson go moto crazy on Renegade
This is Jeep's third consecutive year as a sponsor of the Harley-Davidson European H.O.G. Rally in Slovenia. Given that it's the 25th anniversary of the event, Jeep decided to do something special: the hog-inspired Renegade Hell's Revenge. The show car features performance and aesthetic improvements below a specially painted body designed to look like a flamed motorcycle tank.
Garage Italia Customs, which also prepared two special Jeep Renegades for last year's Montreux Jazz Festival, did the work on the Hell's Revenge. The biggest talking point of the design is obviously the flamed paintwork over the hood. Inspired by the look of airbrushed motorcycle tanks, the process involved a combination of four layers of matte paint base, fluorescent flame paint, and a special transparent layer.
The painted flames continue inside on the dashboard, where they're joined by Foglizzo leather and black denim seats. The result won't be to everyone's taste, but it should fit in well at a motorcycle rally.
The Hell's Revenge isn't all show; it also has a few equipment upgrades, including a suspension lift, personalized skid plate, LED spotlights at the windshield corners, and alloy wheels wrapped in modified BFGoodrich tires. Power at the wheels comes from a 170-hp (127-kW) 2.0-liter MultiJet II turbo diesel engine and nine-speed automatic transmission.
The H.O.G. Rally is underway now, and the Renegade Hell's Revenge will open the parade of bikes tomorrow.
