This surprise show car is Jeep making a statement; “we own 4x4”. The Hurricane is the most powerful and capable Jeep ever, it is an extreme off-road concept that stands as an example for the Jeep brand in a similar way that a Formula One Ferrari does for Ferrari's range of sports cars.

Despite its unique extremeness, the Hurricane does bear some comparison with the EX shown four years ago by Ford. Like the EX, it is a simple concept with lots of exposed structure and mechanicals, two seats and no roof. But the Jeep has a carbon fibre body cladding large V8 engines at the front and rear of the car - for a combined power output of 670bhp - and all four wheels turning to steer the car in a variety of different ways to enable exceptional manoeuvrability - even spinning on the spot.

Although a minimalist and technically orientated concept, some of the detailing of the Hurricane is truly exquisite; tiny indicators integrated into the front lamp cans, “Thrill rated” badges on the side flanks, intricate interior switchgear and square exposed rear lamps with a deeply embossed cross. A lot of fun!

The rock crawling freaks should love that thing. Looks similar to some of the buggys they build minus the independent suspension.
