vilner cherokee srt600 2 Bulgarian Designer Goes Wild With American Muscle Car

The first line in the press release mentions Bulgarian Design Studio, Vilner. Call me narrow minded, but I can’t think of the last automotive marvel to eminate from the eastern block country. Which I suppose is why this Vilner Cherokee is so special.

Starting life as a previous-generation Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT-8, an already powerful SUV, the car first made a stop at legendary/insane tuning house Henessy, where they boosted the cars 400horses to a frankly frightening 600hp. Thankfully that power is distributed via all 4 wheels, or the owner would go through rear tyres like Chappies.

Dubbed the SRT-600, after arriving in Bulgaria, the car then underwent the Vilner transformation, the results of which you are currently viewing. The car has been created to the custom spec of the owner, who is not named.

Apparently much attention was paid to the steering wheel; covered in Alcantara, the owner wanted a very specific shape and feel. The rest of the interior follows a similar style, swathed in red and black Alcantara, combined with black leather, trimmed with ornamental red seams.

External modifications, besides the bodywork were made to the headlights, with daytime LEDs added and Xenon headlamps fitted, rounding off the new, hyper-aggressive look.

If your heart has always desired a muscular American SUV with crazy power and a Bulgarian-inspired interior, Vilner Design Studio will tailor each project to the individual.

Way back in 2007, there were reports that Apple and Mercedes Benz had signed a deal whereby Apple was to design an in-car maintenance, communication and navigation system for inclusion in Mercedes Benz vehicles. It’s all coming true. The iCar is what you get when you combine a Mercedes-Benz S Class car and the latest Apple devices.

The car has 750 horsepower and almost 1000-lb/feet of torque. It has a top speed of 211mph, and sprints from 0-60mph in just under four seconds.

The gadgets include a MacMini which is installed in an electrically operated tray located in the trunk. It feeds to a foldable LCD display in the ceiling.

Dual iPads can be used with Apple keyboards. The feature lets you control the climate; operate the command system and many more. A multi sound system is also available. The entire installation connects to the Internet with a 3G connection.

The car without the Apple power costs over $500.000. That could mean that the actual price for the full version would be much more. But you can enjoy the photos for free here.
