An athlete ready for a marathon.
The Chelsea Truck Company has unveiled their latest athlete just in time for the start of the 2012 Summer Olympic Games, the CJ300 Jeep Expedition Vehicle. Based on the Jeep Wrangler, one of Afzal Kahn’s favorite cars, the new CJ300 brings a stylish appearance to a brawny, athletic SUV that is capable of an off-road marathon.
The team at the Chelsea Truck Company, under the A Kahn Design umbrella, was able to refine the exterior and interior styling of the Jeep Wrangler without taking away from the off-road capabilities and rugged build quality.
The entire CJ300 Jeep Wrangler was given a coat of Military Green paint, including each of the extended fenders and side mirrors. The front features a special Kahn grille that is flanked by a set of horizontal LED daytime running lights and smoked xenon cross-hair headlamps. Even the side markers, rear taillights, and fuel filter cap are in a contrasting black. The rear was given a set of Kahn cross-hair exhaust tips and a Chelsea Truck Company wheel cover. Each of the side wing blades are made of lightweight carbon and Kahn branding is used on the hood.
The Chelsea Truck Company Jeep CJ300 is as capable as ever off-road thanks to the upgraded wheel fitment. The standard wheels were replaced with strong 9 x 20 Kahn RS wheels with a smoked black finish and original center caps. The bigger wheels were then fitted with meaty 275/55/20 tires and contrasted by gold-painted brake calipers.
Even the interior is designed for rugged off-road duty but still retains a high-level of attention-to-detail. Bespoke seats can be installed by the British design team and can be fitted with quilted and perforated leather with contrasting stitching in a variety of colors. The featured Chelsea Truck Company CJ300 Jeep was fitted with red gauges, toughened rubber floor mats that can be easily washed, and machined and vented aluminum foot pedals. All of the windows can also be given privacy tinted glass to shield occupants from prying eyes.
The Chelsea Truck Company CJ300 Jeep Wrangler is currently available and can be custom-tailored to suit any buyer’s tastes. Pricing for the entire package has not been released.
