Celebrity TV chef and presenter, Mike Robinson, has taken delivery of a bespoke Isuzu D-Max pick-up, to equip him as the hunting season in England gets into full swing.
Mike Robinson is a keen huntsman of game and gatherer of wild food, and has worked with Isuzu UK to select a number of special modifications for his new pick-up.
To help Mike – one of the lead presenters on ITV’s Countrywise Kitchen – make progress around the 20,000-acre estate he manages, his Isuzu D-Max rides on 17-inch matt-black alloy wheels, fitted with 255/65R17 all-terrain tyres. Mike has also had all of the vehicle’s standard chrome-finished exterior parts wrapped in matt-black vinyl – including the front grille, door handles and rear bumper.
Based on an Isuzu D-Max 4×4 Utah double cab, Mike’s model features a unique rubber tray set on the dashboard for holding his binoculars firmly in place – but still close at hand.
For large kills, Mike’s Isuzu D-Max is fitted with a load-bay drawer system, winch and ramp.
Mike commented: “I need a dependable workhorse pick-up and my previous Isuzu Rodeo proved incredibly robust, utterly reliable and virtually unstoppable off-road.”
