2022 Santorini Black 2-Door Soft Top
Osprey Custom 4x4, the world-renowned custom vehicle builders based in Castle Hayne, North Carolina, are thrilled to present our latest creation — this sporty Santorini Black 2-Door Soft Top – an evolutionary SUV featuring modern technology wrapped in true motoring heritage.
Starting with a new, hot-dipped galvanized chassis, this exciting build was completed by our talented Team of Master Craftsmen in October 2022. The venerable 6.2L Corvette LS3 V8 provides impressive forward motivation, while the precise-shifting 6L80E 6-speed automatic transmission with Camaro-style shifter mated to a heavy-duty, center differential lock-equipped LT230 transfer case distributes constant power to all four wheels making certain that the indulgent 435+ horsepower and 445+ pound-feet of torque makes it to the ground. Powerful disc brakes at all four corners ensure stops are 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 bold, gloss black 16-inch “Boost” alloy wheels wrapped with 285/75R16 Dick Cepek® Trail Country EXP® tires — an aggressive AT/MT hybrid that combines the best qualities of a mud-terrain tire with an all-terrain tire for comfort and accessibility from city road to dirt road.
Get behind the wheel and you’ll be greeted by our EXCLUSIVE, high-resolution, 11” widescreen digital instrument cluster with speedometer, tachometer, voltmeter, engine temperature, fuel level, oil pressure, odometer, animated turn signals, animated “door open” and low/high beam indicator, date & time, current gear indicator, warning icons, and other important messages. Long-gone are the days of “jumpy” fuel readings and dimly-lit analog dials.
Complimenting the high-tech gauge pack is a state-of-the-art infotainment system with an Atoto® S8 Android-based 7” HD capacitive touch-screen head unit featuring wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto®, dual Bluetooth®, built-in Digital Signal Processor, and GPS navigation, housed in a satin black center fascia and complemented by a rich sounding Rockford Fosgate® 8-speaker array and an 8” Rockford Fosgate® Punch® subwoofer coupled to a Kenwood® eXcelon® 5-channel, 1600 watt amplifier. Security and convenience items include power front windows and a Viper® keyless entry system with remote starting.
The body, expertly finished in luxurious Santorini Black Metallic with matching wheel arches and trim, was carefully reunited with the chassis once back from our in-house body and paint shop. The gloss black powder-coated 4-point roll cage protects precious human cargo and the tight-fitting, premium black soft top with roll-up/zip-out side and rear windows keeps the elements at bay when needed, and can be easily removed when that wind-in-your-hair feeling is on tap. LED-illuminated, “Osprey” monogrammed, black anodized aluminum exterior door handles, and black anodized aluminum door, bonnet, and windscreen hinges complement the stealthy appearance, as the front end was updated with a gloss black premium grille with custom “Osprey” badging, gloss black light surrounds, side intake, and forced-air wing top vents. The front bumper is home to twin LED running lamps, while the tubular rear step bumper accommodates the rearview camera, a 2" hitch receiver, and jacking/recovery points. A heavy-duty, swing-away rear tire carrier neatly finishes the tail end.
Satin black, powder-coated Masai® tubular side steps assist with ingress and egress to the well-appointed passenger cabin where you’ll find a modern-style dash that provides excellent heating and air conditioning, ensuring the occupants are comfortable year-round. The well-appointed interior is complete with Exmoor Trim® Black Rack & ½ Leather upholstered and heated front sport seats with contrasting white stitching, 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 front footwells and rear cargo area, and the leather-wrapped center console houses a convenient storage cubby, as well as a wireless fast-charging pad for mobile devices, USB charging points, and two oversized aluminum cup holders. For those extra-brisk mornings, the front windscreen is also heated.
