Los Angeles-based four-wheel drive expert Icon has now crafted a special “Old School Edition” of its rugged FJ44.
Using a 1972 Land Cruiser as its basis, the new edition gives the off-roader a massive power upgrade, now carrying a 6.2-liter V8 from GM that can push out a whopping 430 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque via an Alsin Warner AX15 five-speed manual transmission and Atlas II two-speed transfer case. The company also couples Dynatrac Dana 60 rear and front axles with a Fox Racing coil-over suspension, sitting above hydroboost-assisted Brembo Sport brakes, the company’s own forged aluminum wheels, and all-terrain tires from BF Goodrich.
As for its cosmetic elements, the entire exterior has been painted in a eucalyptus green, paired with an earth green insulated canvas soft top and white leather upholstery on the interior. An aluminum trim surrounds the rest of the gadgets inside the cabin, including a NEX 8600 multimedia system, Apple CarPlay support, GPS navigation, Bluetooth connectivity, and a Focal K2 sound system for your entertainment.
For those interested, Icon’s “Old School Edition” FJ44 will start at $237,000 USD. Head over to the company’s website to learn more.
