The Laforza 4x4 is made in Italy in the Pininfarina factory. It is primarily for military and police use over there. It has an Alfa Romeo 6-cyl engine in it in Italy.

However, a company called Monster Motorsports in Escondido California imports them into the USA without the engine and transmission.


There they are equipped with a Ford 5.0 loter V8 and an automatic overdrive transmission. They are then sold as a luxury SUV with Ferrari leather and walnut trim.

Laforzas are designed for low level drops from airplanes and therefore have to be very tough. They weigh 5250 lbs (~2400kg). These are fun off road vehicles as you feel almost indestructable in them.
