Ah yes, red...the color of love. Or if you just happen to fancy Bulgarian tuning at its finest, the color of Vilner’s latest project for the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT600. We’ve been fans of Vilner for quite some time now so a lot of the things they do really don’t surprise us anymore. But this one really took us for a loop, simply because they managed to turn a Hennessey-prepped Grand Cherokee into a visual concoction of bloodshot madness.

If you recall, this isn’t Vilner’s first take on the Grand Cherokee SRT600, having previously worked on the SUV last year, but that one certainly pales in comparison to this one. What makes this particular project stand out - for better or worse - is the extensive work done on the car’s aesthetics, especially on the interior. Apart from the new headlamps and new LED daytime running lights, the exterior of the Grand Cherokee was left unchanged by Vilner compared to their last project, but the interior is another matter entirely. One look at it and your attention immediately is drawn to the red and black Alcantara that’s complemented with black leather and red stitching. On top of that, there’s a new flat-bottom steering wheel that can be customized to the whims of the owner.

As for the powertrain, the modified engine still boasts of Hennessey’s ’Vortech’ turbo system, one that took the SUV’s 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine and bumped its output from the standard 360 horsepower all the way to a delirious 600 horsepower.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Very impressive! I like the luscious red paint on the body and wheels, excellent interior and powerful engine.

I love the shiny red color of it. Very aggressive and hot. And it became more special because on its interior and engine system, well construct.

This kind of vehicle is for the mountain or anything that not have a hi-way. The hoods are great it folds to see the engine of vehicle.

They tuned this one already so it is their second chance. If that is the case, they already know what upgrades they need since it is their second time. By the way, I do like the red blood color and the matte black.

IMO, it’s better to leave that color in Ferrari though its speed performance is kind of impressive! The power output of the car is equivalent to a sportscar. And I guess this is the most powerful Jeep production that I have seen.

Hell! this car tuning is quite an impressive vehicle! The boost up to 300+ hp in the power output of the car is quite an impressive speed performance. BTW, I don’t like the paint job of this car.
