Read more
You’d think this pair of funky mini-4x4’s would be the work of some loony-tuner with a big imagination and a heap of spare time, but actually, they’re offered officially by Suzuki Germany. Being politically correct. Suzuki offers one for the girlz, the zebra-colored “Daktar” und one for the boyz, the military “Camouflage”. Both special edition Jimny’s come equipped with an 86Hp strong 1.3-liter engine and are priced at 17.200 EUR (23.200 USD). However, you’d better hurry up because only 75 units of each version will be offered. If anything, you won’t go by unnoticed.
