Meet Hennessey Maximus 1000, A Very Angry Jeep Gladiator With 1,000HP

Texas tuner Hennessey Performance has taken the 2020 Jeep Gladiator, tuned it and calls it Maximus 1000 which it proclaims as “the ultimate Jeep Gladiator.” And why shouldn’t it be “the ultimate gladiator” when it now has a very angry 6.2L supercharged V8 Hellcat motor under the hood that discharges an insane 1,000 horsepower and turns out a metal-twisting 933 lb-ft (1,265 Nm!) of torque. Holy mother of… that’s a lot power and torque! Continue reading Meet Hennessey Maximus 1000, A Very Angry Jeep Gladiator With 1,000HP

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.

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

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

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.

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?
