ICON D200 for Sema 2012

by SpeedLux

ICON had partnered with Banks Power to build a very special one-off Dodge D200 which was showcased at the SEMA Auto Show. The vehicle was based on the landmark 1965 crew cab and the fully restored ICON D200 will echo all of the classic crew cab’s design strengths with mild custom nuances, and decidedly modern performance and comfort.

“We couldn’t be happier partnering with Banks on a project offering us the rare chance to fuse the bolder design elements of the D200 into a modern-day custom filled with all the power and drivability enthusiasts expect from each of our respective brands,” comments ICON Lead Designer and CEO Jonathan Ward. “ICON and Banks Power have discussed potential collaborations for quite some time, so to work on the D200 for SEMA with them is simply awesome. We have a lot of respect for Gale’s innovation and to consult with him and his company on a build like this is just a stellar opportunity.”

The Icon D200 will features a modern-day Dodge 3500 series pick-up chassis and mechanical systems, the suspension would get 4 and a ½ inch Baja 1000 Chase lift kit equipped with Fox 3.0 reservoir shocks, and the vehicle will ride on Hutchinson 17 x 8 Monster WA-1175 series rims in a matte black finish shod with BF Goodrich all-terrain 37″ tires. Under the hood will be the 5.9 L Cummins engine which would deliver 975 lbs. of torque, Some features which will be seen soon on the D200 will be: Six-Gun Diesel Tuner, Banks iQ Man-Machine Interface, Monster Ram Intake Manifold, Banks Monster Diesel Dual Exhaust, a Banks Brake Exhaust Braking System ram-Air intake, back-up camera, water injection, and custom air/water Techni-Cooler intercooler, and much more. Inside the D200 it will feature American Indian Reservation sourced bison leather especially designed in collaboration with Parabellum Collection.Audio will include a JL Audio sub woofer and amp alongside a 165 KRC series mid range speakers and tweeters.

Banks Power CEO Gale Banks comments, “I’m blown away with the nostalgia meets excellence character of ICON vehicles. At Banks Power, we work to define future engine technology. We’ve always been about what’s next in powertrain and electronics. With ICON, we’ve found the perfect mix of their leading-edge vehicle construction, Banks Power components, and Gale Banks Engines. My thanks to Jonathan Ward for the opportunity and stay tuned, there’s more to come from both of us.”
