Jeep Wrangler

CelebrityCarsBlog reported that Activision gave Kobe Bryant a 2011 Jeep Wrangler, Call Of Duty: Black Ops Edition.  TopSpeed helped provide details about the car.

"The special edition version of Jeep’s most popular off-road vehicle comes in either a two-door model or a four-door Unlimited model and is based on the Wrangler’s Rubicon trim. The special edition Wrangler was given a completely blacked-out exterior paint that goes well with a set of mineral gray allow wheels wrapped in some pretty intimidating 32-inch off-road tires. The vehicle also happens to have some Mopar influences on it, too, including Mopar tail lamp guards and a Mopar fuel door. Oh, and there’s also a number of Call of Duty: Black Ops stickers adorned on the car."

It’s hard to say whether or not he kept the car, but at least it is a polar opposite vehicle to his Lamborghini Aventador and Ferrari 458.  Though it is just a two-door Wrangler, it does add a degree of practicality and would make his identity more discreet on public roads.  The cosmetic difference help distinguish the Wrangler from other vehicles.  Personally, I’d be far more interested in the 32-inch off road tires.

Unfortunately, there were no changes to the engine or drivetrain.  No wonder why we don’t associate Kobe Bryant with the word, “Jeep.”
