Living down in the depths of Cornwall, this Jeep is the most fun way to head down to the beach – you can imagine it in the height of summer with the roof folded back! The car came to us and had an exterior spruce up before being electrified. It’s been resprayed, has rejuvenated trim and a new canvas roof, making it look brand new. It’s owner went with the long range option of 10 Tesla batteries on the electrification front, meaning this is more than just a town run about, it’s now used to find the best hidden beaches across the South-West. Maintaining the original gearbox, 4wd systems and off-road gear ratios, it’s even more competent off-road than ever before.
