A Navara to Die 4.0?
Friday, July 20, 2007
Fitted with the optional Premium pack, the Navara comes with electrically adjustable front seats, leather upholstery, an in-dash six-CD changer, specially logo'd floor mats, chrome door mirrors with integrated indicators, 17in alloy wheels, cruise control and an electric sunroof. If that's not enough for you then don't forget that it also gets a polished stainless steel styling bar mounted behind the cab, Die Hard 4.0 decals and an individually numbered tailgate badge.
Nissan has gone Hollywood crazy with the unveiling of a limited edition Navara Outlaw double-cab 4x4 pick-up under the Die Hard 4.0 banner. It coincides with the launch of the latest film in the Die Hard series starring Bruce Willis.
Five of the 444 trucks to be produced will be more prized than the others. Once every single truck has been sold all the new owners names will go into a hat and numbers 1, 4, 44, 400 and 444 will be randomly allocated.
Customers who receive them will also get a free specification upgrade as found on the top-of-the-range Aventura model. It includes a voice-activated satellite navigation system with a full colour 7in screen and an upgraded, MP3 compatible, audio system. The package is worth £1,200.
If you want even more goodies, then you may want to note that a Die Hard 4.0 accessory pack is available for £755, including fitting and VAT. For your money you get a styling bar to protect the front bumper, rear parking sensors and chrome lashing rails for the cargo bed.
The Die Hard 4.0 Navara costs £18,995 plus VAT, or £20,095 plus VAT if you want the automatic. It's based on the just-launched 2008 model-year Navara with features such as an upgraded Bluetooth hands-free mobile phone system and puddle lights fitted to the door mirrors. Clearly Nissan reckons that 4x4 owners don't like getting their feet wet.
