Jeep Renegade Hell's Revenge
The Jeep® brand is the main sponsor at the 25th anniversary of the iconic Harley-Davidson® event held in Portoroz, Slovenia from today to June 19th. Free and open to all riders and with an expected attendance of thousands of Harley-Davidson riders, enthusiasts and friends, the event is an unmissable highlight on the Harley-Davidson® calendar. For the occasion, the Jeep brand - that is partnering with Harley-Davidson for the third year running and offering branded hospitality and test drives at each of its EMEA based events - will be debuting the unique Jeep Renegade Hell's Revenge show car created by Garage Italia Customs (GIC).
Based on the Renegade model, the Hell's Revenge is a tribute to Harley owners and to all bikers who share the same values and lifestyle and confirms the strong affinities between the two brands.
The Hell's Revenge also represents a further step in the collaboration between the Jeep brand and Garage Italia Customs, which started last year with the two Renegade show cars customized by GIC for the Montreux Jazz Festival.
Having devised various concepts, the Design Centre of the Lapo Elkann creative hub identified flames as the key element of the personalization to represent passion, a main value in both the Harley and Jeep worlds.
Moving from the virtual to the real world, four layers of a matte paint base and fluorescent flames were applied on the vehicle's body, protected by a special transparent layer for fluo paint. The intense colour of the new livery has an immediate impact and recalls the particular airbrushing technique used on motorcycle tanks. Flames can also be found on the interior, thanks to the special painting of the dashboard. The seats, on the other hand, boast Foglizzo Nappa leather and black denim.
The Hell's Revenge is a Renegade which has been personalized in every detail to follow the tastes of fans of the custom-made. To ensure the capability of tackling and overcoming any obstacle, the show car features special technical equipment including a personalized skid plate, a suspension lift kit and special alloy rims combined with modified BF Goodrich tyres. Completing the unique look of the Hell's Revenge are two LED spotlights on the windscreen, fitted with specific supports purposely created by the expert craftsmen at Garage Italia Customs.
The Jeep Renegade Hell's Revenge is powered by the 2.0-litre 170hp MultiJet II turbo diesel engine and is mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission.
To further highlight the affinity between the Jeep and Harley-Davidson worlds, on Saturday the Hell's Revenge show car will open the spectacular parade of bikes that is hallmark of each Harley-Davidson rally as also the most exciting moment of the Portoroz program.
