At first glance, you’d be forgiven for not recognizing that the Hercules 6X6 is actually a heavily modified Jeep Gladiator. So extensive are the changes made to the Gladiator that the Hercules looks entirely original. With a starting price of $225,000, it will be a rare sight.
About the price, from what we can tell, it does not include a new Jeep Gladiator which itself starts at over $33,000. The Hercules 6X6 is fully-reskinned from top to bottom, front to back, and obviously fitted with a second rear axle. From there, nearly every element is customizable.
The powertrain is where all the money can go. Included in the price is the Jeep’s standard 3.6-litre V6. An SRT-sourced 500-horsepower 6.4-litre V8 is a $40,000 option while, and hold on, a 1,300-horsepower supercharged 7.0-litre V8, paired with the Ram TRX’s ZF 8-speed transmission, is a $249,000 option.
From here, the chassis can be fitted with one of two off-road FOX-sourced suspensions and a big-brake kit. Other options include automatic side steps, which will come in handy if you opt for the 5-inch lift kit, a built-in front winch, exterior lights, and various bumpers.
The interior can also be fully customized however this is where it becomes evident that the donor vehicle is a Jeep. Despite this, the Hercules can get full-leather and Alcantara interior trim as well as various levels of audio upgrades. Rezvani also offers a thermal night vision system should that be of interest.
With little effort and a few choice options including the 1,300-horsepower powertrain, pricing easily shoots beyond $525,000. If interested, you can reserve one today with a non-refundable $1,500 reservation fee.
