Al Futtaim Motors, the exclusive Importer for Toyota within the UAE are showing us just how open minded they can be. In collaboration with Arctic Trucks – Remember them from the Top Gear Polar expedition -  they dropped what they are branding the Xtreme product range at the recent Dubai International Motorshow. So far so good then!

What they have basically done is taken a Land Cruiser, an FJ Cruiser and the mighty Hilux, and thrown the kitchen sink at them, in traditional Arctic Trucks style.

We can on and on about the modifications that have been made to the cars, but thought a sexy video of the Land Cruiser going through it’s build process and then hard charging through the desert, would be far more interesting. So hit play and soak it up.

For Phil it's all about the car, the quality of content and the story. Having experienced life on both sides of the automotive business, the unbridled urge to set up his own unique motoring website led to being founded in his spare room. The rest as they say is history.
