Does this 4×4 remind you of a Jeep Wrangler? It’s normal. This is a model developed by the Italian tuner Militem based on a Wrangler Rubicon 392. “This car is sold exclusively in North America”, explains Militem, who therefore wanted to offer its own version on the Old Continent. This is how the Ferox500 was born.

Described as an EUV (for “Extreme Utility Vehicle”), the Militem Ferox500 differs aesthetically from the Jeep Wrangler by means of a body kit. This expands the 4×4’s screens, adds 22-inch black rims, removes the rear spare tire and even includes a carbon fiber grille. This material is also used on the bonnet air intake and the mirror caps.

In addition to black logos, the design of the Ferox500 is also characterized by four matte black exhaust outlets directly integrated in the rear bumper. These make it possible to roar the V8 Hemi 6.4 engine, which here develops 470 hp for 637 Nm of torque. Coupled with a four-wheel drive and an eight-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission, this Militem Ferox500 block allows you to achieve 0 to 100 km / h in 4.5 seconds.

Militem has completely revised the suspensions

Sporty, the Ferox500 is capable of adventure, according to Militem. The tuner has equipped the 4×4 with adjustable aluminum and carbon fiber suspensions, or even high-performance shock absorbers and a calibrated torsion bar that acts as a steering damper.

Large brakes to stop the 470 hp

The braking system has also been inspected, in collaboration with specialist Powerbrake. The Ferox500 thus receives grooved and semi-floating brake discs at the front, combined with six-piston radial-mounted aluminum brake calipers and high-performance pads. The rear axle has discs combined with four-piston calipers.

This luxury item finally rediscovers the interior of the Jeep Wrangler. “We’ve revolutionized the cabin,” Militem boasts proudly, explaining that he made this cockpit by hand. The seats in particular have been redesigned to adopt a style inspired by motor racing. They have Nappa leather and Alcantara upholstery combined with red stitching. Leather also covers the dashboard, dashboard, steering wheel, gear lever and the inside of the doors. Some elements are made of carbon fiber, they get a glossy treatment. Ambient lights can be configured by the driver.

Militem Ferox500 can already be ordered. The price is set at 149,500 € excluding taxes.

Shortly said

It’s a real monster created by Italian coach Militem. Based on a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392, this specialist created the Ferox500, a luxury 4×4 as sporty as it is adventurous. The machine receives a tuning kit that expands its body, while its interior has been reworked by hand to get a luxurious finish, all in Nappa leather, Alcantara and carbon fiber. In addition to the suspensions and brakes, Militem has of course modified the Hemi 6.4 V8 engine. The power of the American block is thus increased to 470 hp for 637 Nm of torque, to allow the Ferox500 to reach 0 to 100 km / h in 4.5 seconds. Militem Ferox500 is sold for € 149,500 excluding taxes.
