Toyota and Arctic Trucks recreate a modern model legend

For all its toughness, there’s a playful element to the Toyota Hilux that can put a smile on any driver’s face, a big-toy appeal that’s lasted through generations of the world beating pick-up.

Tamiya celebrated this quality when it produced its hugely popular radio-controlled scale model version back in the 1980s. Now Toyota is returning the compliment with its own, custom-built working replica of this miniature hero – the Hilux Bruiser. The big difference – and we mean big – is that this is a full-size machine that’s kitted out for the extremes of off-road driving, courtesy of conversion specialists Arctic Trucks – the team that built the Arctic-conquering Polar Hilux.

IN BRIEF

Toyota custom-built working replica of this miniature hero – the Hilux Bruiser. Inspired by the hugely popular radio controlled scale model version back in the 1980s.
