Swiss SUV couture: 1976 monteverdi 4×4 safari

following up on the monteverdi posts, here is one of the very first luxury SUV’s by swiss car manufacturer monteverdi. although the car was anything but swiss the company non-the-less functioned out of benningen, on the southern edge of basel. this was perhaps a reflection of the better known “range rover” by british leyland which although expensive, it sold for a fraction of the “safari” at the time. the safari’s price tag at the time was 185,000 swiss francs (approximately $241,215) a good chunk of change at the time. by dd
