Don't worry, animal lovers, it's just a Nissan Navara accessory
13 February 2007

Ever hankered after a really well-equipped pick-up truck? Us neither, but that isn't stopping Nissan from forging ahead with its latest forecourt offer. Anyone who orders a Navara pick-up between now and the end of March gets a saving on a couple of brand new additions to the extras catalogue; specify the 'Armadillo' sports bar, roll-top flatbed lid and loadliner, and you'll get £50 off.The 'Armadillo' sports bar is ideal for the aspiring, upwardly mobile sheep farmer who's looking for a bit more bling in his life. Those wholesome, country girls will swoon at the sight of its polished shinyness. You needn't tell her that you only paid £2432.78 for the full kit, or how great it is for tethering disobedient ewes to; she'll just be bowled over by your munificence.Autocar has one question: why did Nissan chose to name a set of roll bars after a partially sighted remnant of mammalian natural history made famous in this country by its inclusion in an advert for a chocolate bar? Several sources have speculated that it may be a veiled reference to one of the Navara's rivals. Our information is that if you do fit this 'Armadillo' kit to your Navara, it will roll-up into a protective ball when threatened by a nasty-looking L200. Those Mitsubishis are 'hard', after all.
