Unlikely tunage: Italians take on Ssangyong
Proof that Italians can design some that aren't sexy is at hadn: the Intercar RX 400 pickup. Intercar, a recently self-anointed car design firm near Modena, took a Ssangyong Rexton and added a pickup truck bed. Why you would start your tuning enterprise with a Ssangyong, and why you would make it even less attractive than it already is (a feat that should be recognized as difficult, for sure, but not desirable), are questions we simply can't answer.
The company's background is motor homes and campers, and it shows. That might also explain why Intercar thinks you'd want a 90.5-inch goiter permanently attached to the back of your Rexton. Sure, it can fit all kinds of recreation vehicles, and a wheelbarrow and load of of dirt, as well... but if you bought an SUV, isn't that what trailers are for? Intercar's other tuning forays aren't nearly as bad, and its 2-seater sidecar is just plain kooky.
