Number 1

This is Prototype No. 1. Used as a mule vehicle to trial and develop different designs, processes and configurations. It has already been fitted with several different engines and gearboxes (we've timed an engine/transmission assembly swap down to 1.5hrs) and has been rebuilt with different body panels and components far too many times. It has been an invaluable tool in the development of production vehicles and is finally being retired to a life of hard use on and off road.

Judge Dredd

Reminds me of the taxi from the movie. Maybe we should design a forward control?


This picture does give an idea of how much the corners of the bonnet taper in. The idea being that the first thing to touch an immovable obstruction is the tyre. (The mudguards can be removed if you want to get really serious.)

Not so Stealth

We nicknamed it Stealthibex because of its angular shape and blacker than black paint job. Thing is, it seems that if you want to get noticed, get a Stealthibex. You can't drive down the road without everyone stopping and staring. Some with a look of excitement on their faces, some with fear, most with shock.

Need for Speed

If Staffordshure 4x4's 500hp Ibex is too much to handle then here's something for sale that's a little more tame but still pretty quick ;) I know it's not an Ibex but it's still a 4x4, just.
