Suzuki Based Off-Roader
This one isn't as radical as the Blitz or the Suzuki based buggy, but it has a different engine, roll cage and other improvements that make it perform better in the mud. More importantly it has the radiator in the back, which is an option with the Tomcat.
This Suzuki was towed to the site (behind a Daihatsu) using an A-frame. It was really being used as a trailer as it also carried the spare wheels and mud tyres for the tow vehicle so that it also could have a drive in the mud.
Note the external roll cage, racing harnesses, repositioned fuel tank, repositioned exhaust, new rear bumper with recovery point, revised front bumper, snorkel (vacuum cleaner hose?) and ‘doors’ that are very similar to a Tomcat.
This Suzuki has been modified with less vulnerable lights, bigger wheels and tyres, underbody protection etc and it is still road legal. It doesn’t however mean it doesn’t get stuck.
