    Will be Retro..Obviously they hired a company to film..awesome camera setup, im guessing its a massive gimble. Im supprised they dont use a full size RR like topgear with the smooth air susp, maybe with the gimble its less important.

Anything made after this new ADR came into effect shall comply with it, so modern vehicles have to meet the following -

    Section 11 deals with internal and external protrusions - Vehicle Standard (Australian Design Rule 42/04 - General Safety Requirements) 2005

    Based on this I would assume that an Australian variant couldn’t have a side ladder from the factory and fitting one aftermarket would potentially be illegal, but no more so than a fishing rod holder, side awning and such so like a lot of things we do with our vehicles, it’s up to each individual to determine what risk they are happy to run with and accept the consequences of those actions. I this case, if you were pulled up I don’t think it would be too hard to remove it to keep the Police happy. Much lower risk than say running 35” tyres and a 2” lift on a vehicle it is not designed for.

    Just my 2 cents. 😊
    I found the same thing, and the version of s.11 enacted in Victoria. Perenties, when being used by the Army, were probably exempt from the rules that applied at the time.

    The only info I could find was from Qld and it says that a roof-mounted load can't project any more than 15cm from the sides of the vehicle. On that basis a lot of the awnings I see are illegally mounted.

    There's no indication that mounting something on the side of a vehicle is legal at all.
    Side dimensions of the vehicle includes the widest point - Eg. mirror.
