THE luxury Ineos Grenadier 4X4 designed by Britain's richest man could be yours – but it won't come cheap.
This car is manufactured by INEOS Automotive, owned by billionaire Jim Ratcliffe.
Jim – a self-made man who grew up in a council house in Manchester – drove 1,800 miles from Mongolia to Beijing in a handful of Grenadiers, 1920s Bentleys and 1952 Land Rover.
His Grenadier 4×4 starts from £59,000 and rivals the Land Rover Defender and Toyota Land Cruiser.
Available to buy now are two five-seater station wagon models aimed at private buyers and both available with petrol or diesel.
Both models have BMW motors and Brembo brakes, the Daily Mail reports.

The Fieldmaster is aimed more at lifestyle drivers, while the Trialmaster is for more hard-core off-roading fans.
They are called 'Belstaff Editions', after the motorsport-inspired clothing brand which Ratcliffe's Ineos also owns.
There are two more versions classed as "light commercial" vehicles: a two seater Utility Wagon priced from £55k and a five-seater Station Wagon from around £59k.
The Grenadiers have LED front lights, a chunky front bumper and steel wheels.

The CEO of INEO, Jim Ratcliffe, said to This is Money: "The idea behind the Grenadier is t develop a 4X4 that will be an uncompromising, no frills, no fuss vehicle that provides the best-in class off-road capability, durability and utility."
"It will support those who depend on a vehicle as a working tool, wherever they are in the world."
