Howe & Howe Is Back With A Leaner And Meaner Sport Tank Called EV3-F1

What has a 1,500 horses 727 cu-in HEMI engine and is capable of tearing through any terrain with blunt, brute force, leaving behind track marks? Well, it is certainly not a Jeep. Neither is it a Chrysler, or Dodge. In fact, those rides will be deemed tame by what you about to witness here: Ripsaw EV3-F1 Single Seater Super Tank. Now, do not mistaken this with the Ripsaw EV3-F4, which is a four-seater. This baby here is a solo ride and you know what that means. It means you can do whatever the hell you like when you are behind the wheel. And you will want to do whatever the hell you like because, it is the most extreme and most terrain dominant Ripsaw to date.

Land Rover Set To Restored The 70-Year-Old Original 4×4 Prototype

Jaguar Land Rover group has an interesting project planned for 2018. The company has found one of the three original pre-production prototypes 4×4 that made their debut at the Amsterdam Motor Show in 1948. The vehicle was apparently bought by someone in the 60s and when it was found, it was in such a dilapidated state that it took a team of experts at Jaguar Land Rover Classic months poring over the archives to determine that it is indeed the long lost vehicle, the vehicle that started it all. As part of the group’s 70th anniversary in 2018, the group will embark on a year-long meticulous restoration progress to bring the 48’ prototype back to its former glory.

Track1 Is A Half-track Skateboard That Wants To Take On Any Terrain

You know what fascinates us with regards to off-road (skate)board? Track(s). If it has track(s), we are already half-sold. Just half.

This Is What A Bombproof, Flatpack SUV For The Military Looks Like

Flatpack and SUV are like oil and water. They will never ever mix, or at least that’s what we thought. However, one Russian engineer, Dr. Juri E Postnikov set out to prove us wrong with a somewhat toy-ish-looking SUV which he calls Partisan One. Partisan Motors is the company he founded that makes this unusually square-ish vehicle that somehow reminds us of Spongebob and clearly, Partisan One won’t be the prettiest on the trails, much less the roads. With the desire to create a vehicle which can be deployed to the battlefield quickly and efficiently, Dr. Juri came up with the idea of flatpack SUV and being this awkwardly squarish is the direct result of its flatpack nature.
