Until 2007 and the launch of the third generation of this iconic 4 × 4, the Jeep Wrangler was only offered in a short three-door version.

This Jeep Wrangler Rubicon “limousine” is the work of Illusion Coach Builds, an American coachbuilder: the transformation was carried out in March 2006, just after its delivery. The wheelbase of the Wrangler TJ has been increased by almost four feet , while two doors have been added to the rear, as well as two additional seats which bring the total to six seats , all in three rows. A custom-made hood covers the entire model.

Aside from the addition of the third row of seats, the interior of this Wrangler remains fairly basic: there is black leather trim, air conditioning, and a CD car radio. Under the hood, we find a 4.0-liter straight- six, developing 193 horsepower for 318 Nm of torque . Everything is transmitted to the four-wheel drive via a four-speed automatic transmission, while a MagnaFlow exhaust line completes the list of modifications.

This Jeep Wrangler Rubicon limousine only displays 67,650 kilometers on the odometer, and has been auctioned on the Cars & Bids site: at the time of writing, the auctions have passed the 10,000 dollar mark, i.e. the equivalent of 8,200 euros.

Stellantis: our selection of the 10 biggest novelties on the way!

Stellantis our selection of the 10 biggest novelties on the way

The new giant will go on the offensive in 2021.

After the consolidation and the end of the merger between PSA and FCA, Stellantis will be able to go on the attack in 2021. As a result, many new features for each of its brands. Auto Plus has selected the 10 most important. Follow the leader !

Fiat 500e Abarth

No more exaggerated rumblings coming out of the small hood of the Milan chip: the Fiat 500 is now electric. But it should still pass into the hands of the sorcerer Abarth , for increased power, sharper demeanor, and an aggressive look. It could happen as early as next year.

Alfa Romeo Giulietta

Alfa Romeo initially closed the door on a descendant of its Giulietta , which was simply to be replaced by the Tonale SUV . But with the merger with PSA, the compact could benefit from the platform of the future 308 , DS 4 and Opel Astra to return with its Italian charm. It remains to determine its positioning, so as not to step on the beds of its cousins.

DS 4

DS has just presented its new compact sedan, the DS 4 ! Premium and techno, it also inaugurates the new EMP2 platform, which will equip a good number of the group’s cars from this year. Find out more about the DS 4 here .

Fiat Punto

Like the Alfa Romeo Giulietta , the Fiat Punto had been abandoned but could well return thanks to the synergies authorized by the merger, with this famous EMP2 platform. It should be the alternative accessible to its cousins ​​308 and DS 4, and come to be placed at the level of a new Opel Astra, with an Italian touch in addition.

Maserati MC20

Maserati returns to center stage with a supercar! With 630 hp and reduced weight thanks to a carbon shell , the MC20 is capable of speeding from 0 to 100 km / h in less than 3 seconds! The first deliveries should arrive at the beginning of the year.

Jeep Compass

Jeep is taking advantage of the celebrations around its 80th birthday to launch a restyled version of its compact SUV, the Compass . And if the transformation is discreet on the outside, it is evident on the inside: the materials and the finish take a leap forward, as well as the on-board technology. More information is to come in a future dedicated press conference.

Opel astra

Another cousin of the future 308 which is based on the EMP2 platform! The sedan will be assembled in Germany , and will gain electrified versions, while the station wagon is maintained on the program. See you later this year.

Peugeot 308

The current 308 is already 7 years old! The time for renewal has therefore come. The style should be modeled on the new brand image, with “fangs” as daytime running lights, and drawn lines. As mentioned above, it shares a platform with a few other Stellantis cars, such as the new DS 4, the Opel Astra, and possible Fiat Punto and Alfa Romeo Giulietta.

Fiat 500 X Convertible

Fiat wants to attack the Volkswagen T-Roc convertible with a discoverable version of the small SUV 500X ! The top should remain in canvas, a bit like the 500 C. In short, the dolce vita!

Alfa Romeo Tonale

The compact SUV created a sensation when it was presented in 2019 , thanks to a very seductive design. Little news has filtered out since, the merger having shaken up the brand’s plans in the meantime. But the Tonale should be revealed this year . It was originally supposed to use the Jeep Compass platform, but could ultimately recover the decidedly profitable EMP2, which equips the future 308. To be continued!
