I'm going to have to vote on the "not sweet" side. Its nice they think it has "aston martin" quality panel fit and paint, because it sure doesn't have aston martin quality leather work. I'm pretty sure astons have glossier paint than can be seen on those side panels.

And really, what's with that name "Bellargio" - its just sounds like a bastardization of the LV resort "Bellagio." "Bellagio" actually sounds sophisticated and exotic, "Bellargio" just sounds like someone who says "Warshington DC."

These are so phenomenally tasteless that its just impossible to hate on them enough - even with petty criticisms like making fun of the name.

It is truly gross!!!

and some of the info in the text is BS!

like "ITS A 5 CYLINDER TD5 BMW TURBO DIESEL. 200 BHP.".....

The Td5 is LAND ROVER, not BMW. and Ian at IBH has only just this week got a true 208 bhp from a Td5 on a genuine accurate rolling road

"to gain donor status part of the original bulkhead needs to be retained"????

eh, that's a new one over here! more like they got a dodgy Td5 and used some old 25 year V5 logbook to import it over to the US.


walk,no RUN away!!

What a load of cr*p.

This is "Mr BELLARGIO" writing a lots of bull sh*t about his creation. The plate its on means its a 2000my or newer, so just been re-vined.

I have had the pleasure of meeting these guys. They are stuck up there own asses.

"THE BILLET ALLOY DOOR HANDLES ARE ACTUALLY BUILT TO FIT THE CLIENTS HAND SIZE, BELIEVE IT....."

............NO, they told me this is just something they say.

Dont belive half of what the listing says..........




Sorry, rant over

Reminds me of a neighbor of mine who has a 2008 F250 crewcab 4X4 that has like 22" rims and the tires have like 1" of sidewall to them. I even think he lowered it. What is even sadder is that he bought it new of the showroom floor.

Oh, no, you see, those people are wrong. I'm from Washington state, so I'm right.

Perhaps you should be banned from this site for 90 days for that comment.

Pipes through the chrome mudflaps?

It's a defender 90 hearse! I may have thru-hull exhaust on my boat, but I will never have thru-mudflap exhaust on my defender! If I ever do, shoot me in the head and put me in the back of this thing!
