An XE made famous by the notorious OJ Simpson police chase is being brought back – and is now available in the UK.
The Ford Bronco 4×4 SUV, which the American football star drove when leading 20 police cars and 9 helicopters through LA in 1994, has been remodeled for British racers.
Described as “one of the most anticipated vehicles of the past year”, the all-new design draws inspiration from the 1960s and 70s.
Luxury auto expert Clive Sutton said: “The stylish yet rugged exterior showcases the Bronco’s off-road capabilities, while the comfort and modern features make the new SUV a luxury driver. day as an adventurer’s toy,” said luxury car expert Clive Sutton.
It can be yours for as little as £45,000, but you’ll have to wait until 2023 as every car in the first batch has already sold out.
Features include high and low range transmissions, electronic front and rear differential locks, turn assist and even the ability to deactivate the front stabilizer bar at the touch of a button.
With a 2.3-liter or 2.7-liter engine and a seven-speed manual or 10-speed automatic transmission, “the four-door Bronco has the guts to take on any challenge.”
But despite the off-road credentials, it also boasts details suitable for those less likely to wade across rivers and over rocks.
As well as the removable soft top, the driver can remove each door individually to “create a completely unique vehicle for summer driving”.
OJ Simpson infamously fled the police in one of the vans after his wife Nicole and her friend Ron Goldman.
Nearly 100 million people watched the former NFL player in low-speed pursuit, when he pointed a gun to his head and threatened to kill himself.

Every major news network interrupted scheduled programming to cover the incident, while thousands of people crowded the sides of the road to watch the passing traffic.
The chase ended when Simpson and longtime best friend Al Cowlings pulled into the sportsman’s mansion, where he was arrested for double murder.
The chase has made the Bronco a worldwide icon, and a reboot of the car is possible after Clive Sutton secured a model range.
Each vehicle comes with comprehensive coverage for two years or 30,000 miles.
And the company will also handle all import, shipping, tax and registration requirements.
Clive Sutton, Founder and CEO: “Shortly after Ford announced the new Bronco 4×4 SUV, we received inquiries from customers from afar.
“Besides our core supercar and luxury offerings, we are proud to be the first to bring the most desirable models to the UK from the US.
“Bronco offers UK buyers a way to stand out from the crowd with a vehicle as uniquely capable as it is.”
