Road beast
It would be fascinating driving the truck through Kenya;s rough terrains.

Such a beast of a car would suit the construction, farming and mining sectors in Kenya and would be a favourite for engineers who have to grapple with rough terrain, loads of stuff and tight deadlines to commute between locations to get things done. I would be damned if you drive this car for show and shopping.
