Epic: Toyota BXD20 Mega Cruiser for Sale

Posted by B-San on July 30, 2011 at 2:00 PM


A BXD-what? Yes, indeed, there currently is a impressive BXD20 Mega Cruiser for sale in Holland. The Toyota Mega Cruiser was a civilian-product series from Toyota's military BXD20 series used by the Japanese army for Inland Security. It was produced from '95 to '05 in very limited number and basically was an more modern and reliable alternative for the aged Hummer H1 from the US military forces. Under the hood Toyota had placed a bullet-proof 4.1l L4 Diesel engine producing 150HP but also a torque of 390Nm. As for the transmission there was only one option available... automatic. It also came with runflat tires, inboard brake-discs, full-time 4WD system, central diff lock and a co-steering rear-axle as stock. And impressive it is with its huge size. From he side it has a lenght of more than 5 meters. Its almost 2,20 in width, just under 2,10 in hights and has a groundclearance of 0,42 meters. Than for the real offroaders the values that do matter. The maximum cant is a 50 degree, the maximum approach angle a 49 degree and the maximum departure angle a 45 degree. Normally these BXD20's were only sold in a very limited number in Japan but a Toyota Land-Cruiser specialst in Holland imported two of these heavy machines into Europe and one is for sale at the moment. Its a '96 model imported to Holland in '06 with just over 86.000km on the clock. This 6-person edition also is equipped with the basic needs for civil use as a Radio/CD player, powersteering, electric windows, central locking, airco and roofrails. Machine guns not included. The price? Well... I think you don't want to know. The most basic BXD20 would have cost you about €86.000 new back in 1995. A used one would still cost you between €60.000 and €75.000. However I believe this company doesn't really want to sell this car and its more of a publication stunt. I think that cause they dare to ask almost €180.000 for it! Which is, lets be honest, just a scandalous price if they would be serious. Its atleast €100.000 to expensive. So, unlike at most of our post about rare Japanese cars for sale we'll advise you NOT to buy this car. But if you are interested in the ideal car for Rambo's Japanese cousin make sure you have a test drive in this car and if you like it import one from Japan and than spend that 100 grand you saved on some nice Hakosuka for in the weekends for example? Sounds good right? Still kuddo's for bringing cars like this over to our side of the world though. Out!

Hello :)
I'm very interested in buying the vehicle. Since my girlfriend lives in Zoetermeer. Will it be possible to purchase one. Since the 2000 model white megacruiser has my attention.
Can you provide me more information on the vehicle and where to get it. I know the rules in the Netherlands are strict. But tell me how much so I can start saving.

Yes, you are 100% right. We had priced that Mega Cruiser so high because we were not planning to sell it and on the other hand we were not allowed to advertise it without attatching a price to it.

Its now 2016 and the black Mega Cruiser has gone. It found a new owner in Germany who for long time wanted to have one. He seems very happy with it.

We now have Mega Cruiser no 2 for sale. Completely restored and back in its original color white as it was delivered from Toyota. Due to restructuring our company I decided to sell this one too. You cannot have it all and Im not planning to start a museum. Besides the Mega Cruiser we also have some Toyota Fire trucks for sale.

Best regards, Maarten Verschure [email protected]

This Megacruiser was priced not to sell. On the Dutch Ebay site named "Markplaats " ( Marketplace ) you are not allowed to advertise cars you do not like to sell. So therefor the exhorbitant price.

Currently this company has 2 Megacruisers for sale, the black one pictured and a white one wich is under restauration. The balck one is from 1996 and the white one is from 2000. To get more information you have to contact these people. The company is named Landcruiser Adventure. This is the showroom department for one of the largest Landcruiser specialists in Europe.
