'Hell’s Revenge' is a Fiery Jeep Tribute to Harley-Davidson
This month, Harley-Davidson fans from all across Europe will descend upon the idyllic seaside town of Portoroz, Slovenia for the annual H.O.G. Rally. Much camaraderie is made, motorcycles are ridden, music is enjoyed, and apparently… Jeeps are customized. Jeep, one of this year’s event sponsors, reached out to Garage Italia Customs—the folks who created the lovable Fiat 500 “Stormtrooper”—and asked them to produce a show car for the epic Harley-Davidson celebration. This, as you might have guessed, is it. And it’s quite fiery. Meet the 2016 Jeep Renegade “Hell’s Revenge”.
According to Jeep, the custom Renegade 4x4 draws upon the common ground between the two iconic transportation brands, in particular their riders’ (or drivers’) quest for adventure and freedom. And what better a way to blend those two than a fiery chopper-inspired paint job.
In its transformation from standard Jeep Renegade to custom show car, Garage Italia replicated the vibrant air-brush effect flames, a styling staple of many Harley-Davidson bikes, and in this instance, using fluorescent paint. The flame-inspired design continues inside as well, onto the dashboard, and though admittedly the flame look seems to have gone out of style for bikes, inside it looks properly trim. The seats however are a bit less hot-hot-hot, wrapped in stylish Nappa leather and black denim.

Given that it’s still a Jeep, the “Hell’s Revenge” nets a custom skid plate, as well as a requisite suspension lift, bespoke alloy wheels, grippy BF Goodrich tires, and a pair of hood-mounted LED spotlights.
Pop open the hood and you'll find an air-cooled Harley-Davidson v-twin. Just kidding, it's a 2.0-liter turbodiesel four-cylinder, which makes 170 horsepower and comes mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission. There’s always next year, though! The H.O.G. Rally runs from June 16th to June 19th, 2016.
