    It will be interesting to see how they depreciate. A secondhand unit might be viable 10 years on.

    I started to read the article and thought the $120K must have referred to an up-spec'd unit... it's the base model!

    That's not a rival for the Defender or even the Troopie. In fact for that price you could almost buy one of each and still have some change.

    At that price I can't see them selling any.

    If it has airbags it will appeal to mining & gov't buyers. But then again, I'm sure a Council Ranger would rather drive a D3 or a RRS than a G-Wagen.

    However if they have airbags, they could then be customised for mine site ambulance work, and would be better than a 100Series adapted to such a task.

    Come down in price in real terms though as they were selling for like $75,000 plus when last on market in oz 20 years ago.

    But $120,000 totally over priced for what they got and can do

    Probably be cheaper to source a European model and do a direct import yourself

    Really can't see them selling more than a trivial amount at that kind of money.
