INEOS AUTOMOTIVE LAUNCHES ‘DETOUR’ – THE FIRST LIMITED- EDITION GRENADIER FROM ARCANE WORKS

11 Jul 2024
  • How does the Grenadier Detour enhance personalization and long-distance comfort with its design options?

INEOS Automotive has unveiled the first limited edition vehicle from its newly created Arcane Works division, the INEOS Grenadier Detour. Just 200 of the hand finished 4X4s will be produced, using bespoke design elements and working with UK craftsmen to allow customers to add their own personal style alongside custom-made specifications.

Unveiled at Goodwood Festival of Speed, the Detour retains all the Grenadier’s refined dynamics and off-road capabilities, while customers can select from an extensive range of external and internal design options to enhance both the vehicle’s level of personalisation and its long-distance comfort. Continuing to offer a choice of two straight-six, 3.0-litre BMW engines that have a proven track record in refined driving, the Detour will use an exclusively tailored exhaust system in petrol models to enhance the sound character and emotion of the vehicle.

George Ratcliffe, Commercial Director, INEOS Automotive says, “We chose the Arcane name for our new division because the limited-edition vehicles it creates will be so unique as to be rarely spotted in the wild. Working in small-batches and hand finishing the cars means we can give a level of individuality not found in the 4X4 market. For our first launch, Grenadier Detour felt like a fitting name as the Grenadier is for people who enjoy driving, and sometimes it’s worth taking the longer route.”

Detour models will be identifiable by their unique 18-inch forged alloy wheels, a specially designed front grille with headlight surrounds, and four new dedicated paint finishes - Magma Red, Whiteout Blue, Squall Green and Storm Force Silver which are each polished by hand to enhance the finish. Along with the four exclusive colour options, Detour drivers seeking the ultimate in personalisation can select the Arcane Works bespoke paint option that uses a colour matching system which bases the paint colour on a sample provided by the customer or matched to an existing vehicle they may own. Their Detour will then be hand-sprayed in this one-off colour, and hand-polished to a high sheen in the UK.

A specially created exterior contrast pack has been created that includes new colour options of the front and rear skid plates, roof rails and rear ladder, whilst exterior lighting has been decoloured to provide a sleek visual.

The cabin environment will offer a high level of personalisation with a choice two new satin finishes for the transmission tunnel, doors and air-vents, and tactile leathers and fabrics for key driver touch points. As well as the option of four fine-grain Bridge of Weir leathers for the quilted seat upholstery, and two cashmeres from Johnstons of Elgin for the headlining, all Detour models will feature a laser-etched aluminium door scuff plate displaying the vehicle’s limited-edition status. Understated Arcane Works exterior and interior badging is created by British jewellers, Vaughtons.

Each run of limited-edition vehicles from Arcane Works will showcase a unique set of features, and carry a specifically tailored name. Arcane Works will also become a test bed for new technologies and systems for future INEOS vehicles, such as uprated engine modifications, new chassis systems, and many new materials and features.
