It’s designed specifically for luxury superyacht owners and is not a joke.
You’d be forgiven for thinking these images of a Range Rover 6x6 pickup truck are the work of someone with a wild imagination who’s adept at Photoshop. Surely, such a crazy creation could never exist in the real world. But while these images are technically still renders, they’re previewing a future project. That’s right: this Range Rover 6x6 is being turned into a reality as a rival to the mighty Mercedes-AMG G63 6x6 and Maybach G650 Landaulet. It isn’t being made by Jaguar Land Rover, however.
T.Fotiadis Design, a German company that’s the brainchild of designer Theodoros Fotiadis, intends to turn the Range Rover into a 6x6 pickup. Based on the long wheelbase model, the Range Rover has been further stretched, given another axle, two additional tires, and a pickup bed. Dubbed the T.Fotiadis Superyacht Land Tender-SLT and measuring 19-feet long, the six-wheeled Range Rover is being designed for superyacht owners who want to travel on land in style. "It is designed to be a superyacht tender,” Fotiadis told The Drive. “Until now, superyacht owners arrive at the dock aboard their 30-foot tender limos and then have to use Maybach or Rolls-Royce to get around town.
The SLT is a vehicle dedicated specifically to the yachting world and style ambassadors." Talk about having first world problems. Each unit will unique to each rich owner’s specification and will even receive a new VIN number. Buyers will have a choice of a 2.0-liter four-cylinder with a hybrid system, a 4.4-liter diesel V8, or Jaguar Land Rover’s 5.0-liter supercharged V8. No pricing details have been announced, but we doubt that will of much concern if you can already afford a superyacht. All going well, expect to see the finished project debut at the Monaco Yacht Show in September.
