Icon Fj44 Peterson Special

Jonathan Ward’s Californian-based company ICON 4x4 has made a name for re-engineering legendary off-roaders, including Ford Broncos and Toyota FJs. The latest masterpiece to roll out of their garage is the beastly FJ44, called the Petersen Special. This is their most advanced build so far, with impressive upgrades such as a supercharged E-rod V8 engine with 540HP (pushing it from 0-60 in 5.7 seconds), an optimized transmission, and a set of custom Brembo brakes and suspension system. Other details include LED headlights, support for Apple Play, and brown Icon bucket seats to match the color scheme. Head over to Icon´s website for more impressive restorations.
