Going super fast is not for the faint of heart. Going super fast on undulating terrain such as the desert sand, dunes, and rough mountain tracks is for folks with balls of steel. If you belong to the latter, here’s a car you might be interested in: the Prodrive Hunter.

600 HP Prodrive Hunter All-terrain Hypercar

Billed as the world’s first all-terrain hypercar, the Hunter is said to be even more extreme than the Bahrain Raid Xtreme competition car driven by nine-time World Champion, Sebastien Loeb, which it was based on.

Its front-mid mounted 3.5L V6 twin-turbocharged engine is 50% more powerful, producing over 600 ponies and turning out 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque. The power is put to good use on all four wheels via a six-speed paddle shift gearbox, governed by front, center, and rear differentials.

All told, the Prodrive Hunter is capable of wiping the century sprint (0-62 mph) in under 4 seconds and has a top speed of almost 300 kph (186 mph).

Other notables include a high-strength steel tubular structure, carbon fiber composite bodywork, double wishbone suspension with two adjustable dampers per wheel and 400 mm of suspension travel, an FIA standard safety cage, carbon fiber seats, six-point safety harness, dual fire extinguisher system, lightweight lithium-ion battery, a 480L fuel capacity in a safety cell, six-pot calipers with vented disc brakes, and 8.5J x 172 forged aluminum wheels shod in 35/12.5-17 off-road tires.

Clearly, this is not only not meant for the faint of heart; it isn’t made for the road either. If you have a race to win, in the desert sand, dunes, or rough mountain tracks, this ultimate off-roader is for you… if you have £1.25 million (around US$1.52 million) to spare.
