2022 Arles Blue 2-Door Soft Top
World-renowned custom vehicle builders, Osprey Custom 4x4 in Castle Hayne, North Carolina, are proud to present our latest bespoke-built offering — a sporty & rugged Arles Blue 2-Door Soft Top – thoughtfully mingling respected heritage motoring with modern craftsmanship and technology.
Starting with a new, hot-dipped galvanized chassis, this exquisite build was completed by our talented team of master craftsmen in July 2022. A deep-breathing, free-revving 6.2L Corvette LS3 V8 provides more than ample forward motivation, while the smooth-shifting 6L80E 6-speed automatic transmission with PCS® LED display push-button gear selector mated to a heavy-duty, center differential lock-equipped LT230 transfer case distributes constant power to all four wheels, ensuring as much of the 435+ horsepower and 445+ pound-feet of ground-punishing torque make it to the ground as possible. Powerful disc brakes at all four corners ensure stopping is quiet, safe, quick, and efficient.
The upgraded, heavy-duty front and rear axles are located by slightly-taller-than-stock Terrafirma® Pro Sport springs, along with heavy-duty Terrafirma® shocks, Terrafirma® caster-corrected front and cranked rear radius arms, track rod, drag link, and Terrafirma® steering damper, all protected by a heavy-duty aluminum front skidplate. It rides on classic, satin silver 16-inch “Freestyle” alloy wheels wrapped with 285/75R16 Atturo® Trail Blade® A/T tires.
The body, finished in classic Arles Blue with matching wheel arches and trim was carefully mated to the chassis once back from our in-house body and paint shop. The black powder-coated 4-point roll cage protects precious human cargo and the tight-fitting black soft top with roll-up/zip-out rear windows keeps the elements at bay when needed, and can be easily removed when you want that wind-in-your-hair feeling. Black anodized aluminum door, bonnet, and windscreen hinges complement the overall color scheme, as the front end was updated with a gloss black premium grille with black wire-mesh insert, and gloss black light surrounds, side intake, and forced air wing top vents. The front bumper houses twin LED running lamps, and the tubular rear step bumper, complete with a rearview camera, a 2" hitch receiver, jacking/recovery points, trailer wiring harness, and heavy-duty swing-away rear tire carrier neatly finishes the tail end.
In the passenger cabin, the modern-style dash provides excellent heating and air conditioning, ensuring the occupants are comfortable year-round. And for those extra-frosty mornings, the front windscreen is heated. The durable interior is complete with Exmoor Trim® denim twill front sport seats, and the four side-facing, stowable rear seats with matching upholstery provide the ultimate in flexibility — seating for additional friends and family or true utilitarian cargo space. Heavy-duty rubber floor mats protect the fully-carpeted front footwells, and the leather-wrapped center console houses a deep storage cubby, as well as a wireless fast-charging pad for mobile devices, USB charging points, and aluminum cup holders.
Infotainment is furnished by an Atoto® S8 Android-based 7” touch-screen head unit with Bluetooth®, wireless Apple Car Play®, and Android Auto® surrounded by the satin black center fascia and complemented by a rich-sounding Rockford Fosgate® 8-speaker array. The front windows are power-operated, and the Viper® keyless entry and remote starting provide security and convenience.
