A Hilux for the diehard enthusiasts and supporters

Three tiers of development are available to customers.

All motoring eyes are currently focused on the 2022 Dakar Rally.

Many Giniel de Villiers supporters may well enjoy the opportunity to own and drive a Giniel de Villiers or GDV Racing Toyota customised Hilux bakkie.

“The idea with the GDV Racing Toyota Hilux is to offer enthusiasts the opportunity to live their passion,” said De Villiers. “To my eyes, the bakkie is clearly non-standard, but it doesn’t feature any custom bodywork. This gives the car a stylish yet rugged appearance, and together with the changes under the skin, will set this vehicle apart from the regular Toyota Hilux.”

Three tiers of development are available to customers, starting with a decal-only kit at approximately R7 600. The next tier includes decals, a stainless nudge bar, stainless roll bar, ARB Intensity lights and Takla seat covers, with the GDV Racing logo embroidered.

“The top tier is where the components really shine,” said Kurt Brunner, head of business development, 4×4 Mega World. “In addition to the items already listed, the top tier also gains 17-inch Dirty Life alloy wheels shod with 265/70R17 S/T Cooper Max Tyres, as well as an adjustable Old Man Emu BP51 suspension system.”

The latter not only lifts the vehicle by 50 millimetres, but also improves the ride quality of the Hilux significantly. Furthermore, the dampers are ideally suited to off-road driving conditions and promise exceptional performance in sandy terrain such as dunes.

All the equipment employed in the bakkie is of the highest quality. Established brands such as ARB, Takla, Cooper and Old Man Emu ensure that the GDV Racing Hilux exudes a feeling of quality and excellent workmanship.

“The GDV Racing kits can be fitted to either new double-cab bakkies or to cars that have been on the road for some time,” continued Brunner. “We are treating this as a limited edition, however, so prospective buyers should make contact with us sooner rather than later.”

The kits are available through selected branches of 4×4 Mega World.
