Wald Tuned Toyota Hilux Gets Black Bison Look
Would you like this look for your Hilux?
WE are sure you have heard of Japanese tuning company Wald International. Well, for the slightly older Malaysians who are car enthusiasts, the Wald name was famous 14-15 years ago when a Malaysian importer of reconditioned cars ‘Amazing Tempo’ started a dealership selling mildly tuned cars using Wald bits.
It soon became big news when this dealer started selling hundreds of Volkswagens with Wald mild tuning and this promptly brought Volkswagen back into Malaysia. Started with the Mk5 Golf GTi and followed with the Polo, Touareg and the Golf TSI.
Wald tuning is sadly no longer officially sold in Malaysia (there is a private dealer you can contact on facebook for WALD in Malaysia) but we have just seen this Wald tuned Toyota Hilux. Called the Black Bison, this is one mean looking aggressive Hilux.
We believe that Wald is trying to build a vehicle that is, “Aggressive, Powerful and has a Muscular Style.” Often times when a tuner goes after just those qualities, they end up going overboard, but Wald has kept its tuning quite sane.
Here the Toyota Hilux is completely transformed into a menacing beast. Everything from the vents in the front fenders to the rear wing make the Black Bison look like a truck that wants to play with the Raptor. The aero kit consists of a new front bumper with signature integrated fog lamps, bold side skirts, a rear apron with integrated diffuser and new quad-exhaust system. Not to mention the wide 20 inch wheels that complete the murdered out look of the black on black beast.
Even though Wald made no modifications to the powertrain, the Toyota’s trusted diesel engine when heard through the new high performance exhaust, is more than enough to match the aggressive exterior of this Hilux Black Bison.
Only problem is the pricing. With Wald no longer officially in Malaysia, you will need to order this directly from Japan, or take a drive across to Thailand and we are sure you can get a similar looking menacing kit for your Hilux from Thai truck tuners.
