Vilner Puts Their Touch On Hennessey-Powered Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT 600

Bulgarian tuner Vilner is becoming quite the interior specialists, this time revisiting a Hennessey Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT 600 project. The first time around was back in October 2010, when Vilner got their hands on the 600-hp, V8-powered Grand Cherokee after Hennessey had installed their performance package. This time around though, Vilner redid the entire interior with a similar red and black theme similar to the Jeep's exterior.

On the inside, plenty of red and black Alcantara has been combined with black leather that is trimmed with red seams. In addition, Vilner designed and developed a unique steering wheel for the Grand Cherokee that they claim offers the best possible grip. The steering wheel can be personalized to the customer's preference if requested and is wrapped with a similar Alcantara/leather combination.

For the exterior, Vilner modified the headlights with daytime LEDs and halogen diodes.

I think the exterior is pretty good looking. Not to keen on the interior though.

Damn that thing is done up. I guess to each there own. But I wouldn't spend my money on that. The exterior is okay though.

I can live with the interior...but the outside needs to be set on fire, much like that lime green jeep.

Not a fan of groupthink and limitless congratulatory high-fives.

Is the SRT600 package from Henny Turbocharged? The seats say TURBO on them. I thought that was a h/c package? I know they rate their packages at the crank hp. wise but 600 at the engine is WEAK!

I have to ask though, besides the color, where can I get a steering wheel like that. It looks like the new SRT wheels.
