I had never heard of Korean carmaker SsangYong until about a year ago when I walked past a dealership in Switzerland, saw the vehicles on the showroom floor, and thought to myself, "Good Lord. It's like someone cross-bred an M-Class with a Lancia Thesis."

In case you're wondering, that's bad. That dealership, to me, was like some sort of automotive Island of Dr. Moreau.

Anyway, SsangYong UK has announced that it's releasing two new new limited edition Rexton SUVs, and when they say limited, they're really not kidding. The Rexton S Sport is limited to 90 units and comes with navigation, Texas alloy wheels and Chicago side bars with steps. It costs £19,995.

The Rexton SE Sport is limited to just 65 vehicles, and gets a Kenwood nav, Montana 18" alloys, Denver side steps and rear parking assist. It'll set you back £23,995.

What those American cities have to do with the accessories they're named after is a total mystery, but hey, if it wasn't bizarre, it wouldn't be a SsangYong.
