Posted on Instagram by Dirk Heilman himself. Assuming these are the 4 "2Cs" that have been produced in Hambach. All in the forums favourite colour! interesting to see whats different on them, and if the rear LCA mounts are higher... can't tell from this pic

The ground clearance definitely looks to be a little more than the other pictures I've seen so far. That could just be me imagining things though...

I wonder if that's just the lack of a white painted chassis giving the illusion of more clearance

You're probably right, that and wishful thinking on my part.

Although apart from height of the resr LCA mounts, I don't think clearance is an issue for most people. Slightly upsized tyres and a suspension lift will make it perfect.

A lot of the prototypes we have been seeing in videos have some sort of a sidestep. I don't think they are actual rock-sliders because the rock-sliders you can see on the Ineos Grenadier website (under "accessories") are tucked up much closer to the body than the sidesteps I have been seeing on the prototypes. In any case - I bring this up because I think the sidesteps dramatically reduce the visible ground clearance and make the underbelly of the Grenadier look rather low to the ground. None of these 2C vehicles have sidesteps (or rock-sliders), so I think this explains your observation that they seem to have better ground clearance than most of the Grenadiers we have seen previously. Just my two cents!

Played around with exposure and black levels in GIMP, and not much detail to be extracted.  Maybe we can get a closer picture of the rear LCA mount next time?

Ineos aren't exactly hiding the vehicle during development, so I'm sure we'll get a closer look soon enough
