Vehicle customisation is nothing new, but when you take a hi-spec vehicle to start with, and the customisation is done by the manufacturer – you end up with something special. And that’s exactly the case with this one-off Hilux Gladiator.
Already a highly spec’d model, this version of the Hilux SR5 has been uniquely modified beyond recognition into a muscular beast, fit and ready for anything from climbing mountains to towing the boat, trailer or weaker rivals out of the mud.
Modifications and accessories fitted to the Hilux Gladiator include a suspension lift kit, 20-inch alloy wheels, front and rear bull-bars and winch, snorkel, bolt-on flares, sports bar with custom mounts for the spare tyre, custom Gladiator Grille, Toyota Racing Development (TRD) skid plate, TRD side-steps and full custom-decal vehicle wrap.
Inside, the Gladiator has a custom made full Pantera red leather interior, featuring tombstone front seats. The driver will hang onto a leather-wrapped steering wheel, gear knob and rest their feet on custom floor mats with Gladiator branding. The rear deck features a roll-and-lock retractable lid with custom mounts for a sports bar.
