Liberty Walk Jimny!

Just when you thought you'd seen it all from everyone's favourite Japanese bodykitters, here comes the Jimny



It says a lot about the reputation of Liberty Walk now that it can launch a new model with absolutely no details whatsoever and still catch the attention of all the automotive news outlets. Probably helps that it's the adorable new Suzuki Jimny in this case, though...

"We are pleased to announced the launch of first LB SUV in our history!" proclaims Liberty Walk's Instagram post, continuing: "New LB style and more aggressive! It will be released this year! We accept pre order now!" Certainly the more aggressive element is in no doubt, the Jimny now boasting ginormous arch extensions, roof lights and scoops. Those BBS-style wheels look a good deal larger than standard as well. And it that a rear spoiler?


The eagle-eyed amongst you may have noticed the 'G mini' numberplate, this Jimny launched on the same day as LB's latest G-Class upgrades. If it mimics the big Merc as standard, why shouldn't the Jimny follow the G's lead as a modified car? It'll be easier to park as well.

Beyond what you can see here, there are no further details yet available on what the tuner has planned for the Jimny. But suffice it to say we're very interested to learn more. Because, whether you're willing to admit it or not, you kinda quite fancy one too - don't you?

Other than the arches and possibly the splitter, it looks like lots of pointless ugly crap.

Compared to their other crap this look almost sane, which shows how good the new Jimny retro style body is.
Not sure you need those wide tyres with the maximum cubic engine the jimny comes with though. is it 1400cc with 80bhp? ahem

Better buying a standard one and spending money with Uk offroading suppliers so it can take your dog for a dog walk up Ben Hope without you getting out of the car.

I have as much respect for Liberty Walk as I do for Mansory. Pure garbage.

it`s Liberty Walk, if you expect anything better than ugly ill fitting st you`re in hard luck. Almost makes the old Max Power era seem tasteful, before the 22" spinners took over

It looks like something I would've Photoshopped aged 15.

Where can I submit terrible photo manipulations as news stories?

There's a point to a splitter on a 4x4?

Won't those massive rims cut the already meagre top speed and acceleration?

I think the jimny Sierra (in this new shape) is the version which will be standard in the UK. It has the larger engine and the wheel arch extensions.
