Inkas Hudson APC Is Toyota Land Cruiser Put To Good Use

If you live in an obscenely huge mansion on an obscenely enormous compound, then you probably need a SWAT team to safeguard your property and if so, you will be needing this vehicle, the Inkas Toyota Land Cruiser Armored Vehicle. It is an armored special purpose vehicle based on Inkas Hudson APC (which stands for Armored Personnel Carrier, btw) and one which your money can buy. Though for how much, we have no idea. But we suggest you read on to learn more on what this non-run-of-the-mill Land Cruiser has to offer before asking “how much?” Why? I don’t know. It could be a little overkill for your purpose. Just saying… Continue reading Inkas Hudson APC Is Toyota Land Cruiser Put To Good Use

GM’s Chevy Fuel-cell Off-roader For U.S. Army Looks Like A Show Truck

This is not a Hummer replacement. The U.S. military has already found that. This one here, the Chevrolet Colorado ZH2 Fuel Cell Vehicle, is the future of the battlefield. Apart of having the ability to go places – thanks to its lifted ride height and massive 37-inch tires – it is fuel cell powered, meaning it will be going places in a stealthy manner. On top of that, it has what GM refers to as “Exportable Power Take-Off” unit which allows the fuel cell power to support activities away from the vehicle, even if it is in areas where electricity supply is non-existence.

This Is What An URUS Would Look Like If Lamborghini Gave It Six Wheels

If you think the Mercedes-Benz AMG G63 6×6 truck is cool or the Toyota Land Cruiser 6×6, even cooler, then perhaps, you have yet to see this pleasant monstrosity dreamed up by Lamborghini enthusiast website, Lambo Cars. Clearly, this isn’t a real car. It took Lamborghini years to finally decided to go ahead with the URUS sport utility vehicle and so it would be an inconceivable thought that they would actual produce a beast like this. This concoction is apparently based on Mercedes-Benz’s G-Class 6×6 underpinning, but slapped with a body based on the upcoming URUS SUV, stretched to include a truck-requisite bed.

Nissan 240SX Converted To A Truck Without A Truck Frame And It Is LIFTED

Converting a sports car into a truck is not the newest new. Converting a sports car into a truck without a truck frame is also beginning to be a norm, but one that is without a truck frame under it and lifted? Now, that’s something rather new to us. Well, we do note that it maybe considered blasphemous to some to convert a 1995 240SX into a truck and LIFTED, but I thought this particular example that was once on sale on Craigslist was pretty sweet. According to its owner, it is completely road-legal and it is also off-road capable. And why not? It is, after all, lifted and has just the right set of shoes, doesn’t she? Here’s what it had to offer for $4,300: Continue reading Nissan 240SX Converted To A Truck Without A Truck Frame And It Is LIFTED

Forget About Mercedes G63, Here’s An Awesome 6×6 For Toyota Lovers

If you love trucks, then there’s no reason why you don’t love a 6×6 and similarly, there’s no reason why you wouldn’t feel sore that you can’t own the limited Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6. This is the part where we tell you not to fret and bring you the good news that not all hope is lost, well, that’s if you can settle for something a little lesser and when we said ‘lesser’, it does not mean lesser wheels, or axles; it is just a little less accomplished under the hood. Anywho, we would like you to meet the Toyota Land Cruiser 6×6 a collaborative vehicle created by NSV Automotive in collaboration with Australia’s Land Cruiser conversion specialist, Multidrive.

Sin City Hustler Luxury 4×4 Lets You Hit Up Your Prom, Monster Style

The beast you see here, dubbed Sin City Hustler (aka Extreme Excursion Limo Monster Ride Truck), will make taking stretch limousine to prom night so passé. Even the name itself speaks of cool, well, that’s if you don’t associate the word ‘hustler’ with anything bad, or Larry Flynt (regardless, it may not go down well with your teachers). Though it probably don’t have the ‘amenities’ like those 15 bucks an hour per pax stretch limousines, but who cares when you’re traveling in a 12 feet tall monster truck that stretches 32 feet long? Heck, your limousine driver don’t even need to conform to paved roads cos’ we are quite sure Sin City’s Ford 521CI (8.2L) big block motor that kicks out over 700 horses and its custom C6 shorty transmission, along with four wheel steering and four wheel drive can handle just about any terrain you can throw at it.

Red Bull Latest Event Vehicle Looks Set For Any Post-Apocalyptic Party

Think Mad Max kind of chaos and think parties. What comes to mind? Fire-spewing cannon, spiked-covered vehicle with bulldozer blade, and of course, armored vehicles, along with more sinister stuff like human-skin drums and trumpets fashioned out of human bones. The Red Bull “Armored” Event Vehicle you see here does not have fire-spewing cannon, neither is it covered in spikes nor does it has a bulldozer blade fitted, but its angular “armored” looks should nevertheless, make it more than appropriate for some ‘civilized’ post-apocalyptic parties – that’s if civilized is still an accepted behavior in any given post-apocalyptic scenario.

Post-apocalyptic-looking Toyota Ultimate Utility Vehicle is the Lovechild of Tacoma and Sienna

There’s something particularly alluring about a truck and minivan hybrid, especially when it is made for extreme driving conditions and look suitably apocalyptic, and that was probably why we are drawn to the Toyota Ultimate Utility Vehicle (UUV), a new breed of vehicle launched back in June as part of Toyota’s Ever-Better Expedition experience. You won’t be seeing UUVs in your local showroom though, cos’ this post-apocalyptic-looking off-roader is in fact a lovechild of a Tacoma and a Sienna. In another word, it is a custom job.

Marty McFly’s 1985 Dream Pickup Truck Reimagined by Toyota For 2015

Yesterday, or today for some regions, is the futuristic date introduced in Back to the Future II 30 years ago. There’s a lot of buzz about this date, which was called the Back to the Future day by the White House, that it probably drowns out Star Wars’s marketing campaign. While Toyota may share little to no spotlight in the now-iconic sci-fi flick, it didn’t stop the Japanese automaker from reimagining Marty McFly’s black Toyota Hilux 4×4 Xtracab pickup truck. It has recreated a modern version of Marty’s dream truck using the all-new 2016 Toyota Tacoma. Continue reading Marty McFly’s 1985 Dream Pickup Truck Reimagined by Toyota For 2015

Ford Celebrates the Release of Halo 5: Guardians with Special Version of the 2015 Ford F-150 Called Sandcat

If Halo’s Master Chief aka John-117 were ever to drive a pickup truck, the 2015 Ford F-150 ‘Sandcat’ Halo 5: Guardians Edition would be the truck of choice. Make sense isn’t it? Cos’ the F-150’s off-road capability will probably find the brutal terrains of the Halo world right at home. Ford calls upon the expertise of Galpin Auto Sports to realized this Halo’s United Nations Space Command-inspired truck which was put on display at the E3 2015 (June 16 – 18, to be precise) earlier this month to mark the release of the Halo 5: Guardians for Xbox One.
