  • Startech Range Rover Truck

To be fair, you could easily say the same thing about the average sports or exotic car owner. Still, there's something about a pristine Range Rover that makes us want to get the thing covered in mud, hit a trail, or haul something in the rear cargo area. Startech, which is the division of Brabus that deals with non-Mercedes-Benz bits, seems to sort of feel the same way. CHECK OUT: Audi R8 Rebodied With Skoda Details: Travesty Or Awesomeness?
