Not even a week after Vagabund Moto unveiled its 1964 Honda NX65-based V13 motorcycle, the Austrian custom workshop has now revealed a new project unprecedented for the brand, departing from its usual affiliation with two wheels, instead of going for a full set of four.

A four-wheel drive, Vagabund‘s new car is based on Russia’s Lada Niva, a simple off-roader designed specifically so it could be repaired on the field and on the go. Setting off to make the overlander even more robust, the company made a series of improvements after completely disassembling the car and rebuilding it: a roof rack from F-Design has been added, its suspension has been raised, the front bumper has been removed while the rear bumper has been replaced by a spartan design.

New PIAA auxiliary headlights with 3D-printed cover caps and a set of new Dotz Pharao rims have also been installed, as well as new 205/75 R15 Malades Kobra tires. Finally, the vehicle receives a revitalizing steel gray paint job, with black contrasting doors on either side adorning Vagabund Moto’s written logo at the bottom.

While this is the company’s first-ever custom car, it says that it won’t be the last, with future projects potentially planned around a Land Rover Defender or Toyota Land Cruiser. To learn more about what Vagabund Moto has to offer, head over to its website now.

Elsewhere in the automotive world, Superperformance has crafted a widebody ’60s Shelby Cobra-inspired kit car.
