4X4 News: The Polar Caps Require A Polar Hilux

When Jeremy Clarkson and James May decided to venture to the North Pole, they were looking for a vehicle that was indestructible (in other words a vehicle they could abuse), so the Toyota Hilux was the obvious choice. This mighty machine driven by the Top Gear presenters is due to go on display at the 2010 Outdoor Show. Great-Cars.co.uk reported that the “4×4 which conquered the ice and snowfields” will hopefully triumph at the show offering visitors the chance to get behind the wheel of a similarly awesome Hilux and test their own driving skills in a range of adventure off-roading tours which are being promoted at the show.

The Top Gear North Pole Expedition shows have been described by Concept-Cars.org as “one of their best shows, they really pushed their limits on this one”. 4×4 enthusiasts may want to head to the NEC arena between March 26th and 28th to take a look at the Arctic truck, which transported Clarkson and May to the North Pole.

A spokesperson for Toyota said that the Hilux that conquered the caps was “equipped with a few additional features to meet the demands of tackling the countries glaciers, including a set of giant 38-inch tyres that allow the vehicle to traverse deep into snow and thin ice”.

Toyota have a challenge on their hands if they want to attract the same number of viewers at the show that Clarkson and May did when they voyaged across the North Pole – with millions of viewers tuning in to see the Hilux become the first car to be driven to the Magnetic North Pole.
