Renegades of Funk

The modern Jeep Renegade is a fairly interesting looking but ultimately depressingly bland Euro-crossover based on a Fiat 500, with about as much off-road prowess as, well… a Fiat 500. Which means it’s selling brilliantly. This is absolutely not that car.

The original CJ5 Renegade was an altogether different animal, and Flickr’s Havoc has recreated it wonderfully thanks to a little inspiration from the marvellous classic Model Team set 5510.

Havoc’s Jeep Renegade CJ5 is packed with great building techniques to replicate the iconic off-roader’s look, and includes a superbly authentic interior and working steering too.

Head to Havoc’s Flickr album for the complete gallery of images, and you can check out the LEGO set that inspired it via the link in the text above.
