JEEP WRAN­GLER, JURAS­SIC PARK, 1994

Leisure Wheels (South Africa) - - GEAR -

By now the Juras­sic Park brand is syn­ony­mous with Mercedes-Benz. The very first ML was in­tro­duced in the sec­ond movie, while the GLE Coupé was in­tro­duced years later in the re­boot, Juras­sic World.

What many don’t know is that all of man­u­fac­tur­ers paid to have their cars in the movie. Yes folks, Ford paid a pretty penny back in 1994 to fea­ture the Ex­plorer as the main hero car but then Jeep came and stole the show. Who can for­get Dr Ian Mal­colm ly­ing in the back of the Wran­gler Sa­hara, watch­ing in hor­ror as the T-Rex ap­proaches?

This car has been repli­cated a thou­sand times over. All you need is one square Wran­gler head­light and a Juras­sic Park wrap.

Price: We reckon you could repli­cate it for around R70 000. Can it 4×4: Yes, but get a Ru­bi­con in­stead of the Sa­hara.
