All 60 Toyota Land Cruiser Namib editions were sold by January 2020, and with the vehicle still in high demand, Toyota South Africa has commissioned a few more. Here's how much this unique and one-of-a-kind overlander costs, plus detailed specs.
The thing with limited-edition vehicles is demand quickly outstrips supply, especially if you know the vehicle on offer is one-of-a-kind and dripping with coolness. We're not talking unaffordable and unobtainable European exotica here either, but rather the humble and iconic Toyota Land Cruiser Namib edition. Toyota South Africa made just 60 of them back in the 3rd quarter of 2019 and by January 2020, all were gone. Rather than disappoint Toyota's incredibly loyal customers, the brand has made a few more, plus added a single-cab option.
