This Jeep knockoff has he classic style and the power to match, but it wasn' t enough to save the company. 

This does look pretty impressive as it powers through the water, while on land it seems graceful and sublime, just what we ask of a 4x4. Unfortunately, in the high-pressure marketplace of 4x4's today the Massif was unable to keep up. Loosing its contract with Iveco, the Massif makers Santana Motors were unable to stay profitable and sank, with over 1,200 lost jobs. There are less than 10,000 of these ever made, and probably even less now still around, so enjoy it while it lasts!
