If you’re looking for a total showstopper on the road, then the Land Rover Black Mamba 6×6 SUV is for you. Prepare to turn all heads and be the envy of everyone as you drive around town with this robust beauty. Georgia-based car repair and maintenance company Classic Overland is on a new task called Project Black Mamba. This project involves customizing an original 6×6 Defender. This range of SUV is actually one of the rarest and most powerful off-road vehicle to have ever existed.
But How Did the Land Rover 6×6 SUV Come to Be?
A six-wheeled Land Rover may sound new to some since the British automaker is known for its four-wheel drive cars. But in the 1980s, JRA Limited produced the Land Rover Defender 110 in 4×4 and 6×6 variants. These tough vehicles were specifically made for the Australian Army and were designed to tow huge loads over rough terrain.
Classic Overland was able to find one in a fire station in the Winelands of Franschhoek, South Africa. Surprisingly, the rare truck only has 30,000 km on the clock. Moreover, it has a specially tuned V8 3.5-liter engine still in good condition. Now you know what happens when a rare truck gets into the hands of a custom car company. Since they found the vehicle in Africa, they decided to dub the project ‘Black Mamba’ . This is as a reference to Africa’s most feared snake. And that’s how the SUV came into existence.
