The best cars to make into safari models

Most tuner and modding movements tend to pass us by, being usually of questionable mechanical and aesthetic merit. The beauty of the end result is in the eye of the beholder of course but one trend all of us in the GRR office is a good thing is the one for ‘Safari cars’.

If you’re not familiar with it, the starting point is usually a classic but fairly common coupe or convertible from the late ‘60s onwards. This will be treated to modest lift courtesy of some beefed up suspension components; nothing wild but enough for some knobbly tyres on chunky alloys. These are usually covered with some flared arches and matched to other body cladding and protection, rally spotlights and a sturdy roof rack. Here then are the cars which we think most suit such treatment.
