Few things we like more than having a vehicle so beastly and versatile that we can do anything with it: like going on vacation to a conflict zone or, directly to the apocalypse. For the first case we already found the motor home Action Mobil Globecruiser Family 7500. And for the second we are already saving.
James Edition, specializing in the luxury market gives us the opportunity to have the 'tank' with the we have always dreamed of. The company Terradyne Gurkha brings us a modified Ford F-550 XL 4x4 (and so much) of which only have been constructed two units and that has a level of protection ballistic 7, the highest one. And it is on sale for 590,000 euros. The equipment is worth it.
This vehicle is designed to handle anything that can be launched and projected, and level 7 ballistic protection implies that it resists impacts from munitions as powerful as 50mm, used by snipers from a great distance or to drill vehicle engines and helicopters in movement. It can stop long-range projectiles and great power so its next owner must belong to some international security body if it does not want to raise suspicions on the day of purchase.
The Terradyne is built from a 2012 Ford F-550 XL 4x4 with a 6.7 V8 Turbo Diesel engine that provides 304 hp. And as it could not be otherwise, comes equipped with 6 ports of arms on the doors and the back and the body is made of ballistic steel which, as we have said, supports the impact of any type of weapon at the same point without compromising the passengers.
Other extras included are two roof-mounted search lights, automatic battery charger, a 16.5-liter front winch with a capacity to withstand more than 7 tons, Continental MTP 81 all-terrain wheels, electroacoustic system (sound reinforcement or megaphone), various sirens and different colors to illuminate the interior.
Terradyne is a Canadian company responsible for designing, developing, testing, manufacturing and introducing into the global market a select range of tactical armored vehicles that have been transformed into a civilian version but are still ready for combat. A couple of years ago we talked about the Conquest Knight XV, a Terradyne personalized by this company.
If you are interested, this beast sells in Los Angeles and counts on its odometer with 24,300 kilometers. The price, as we have said, is close to $ 700,000. It is not a vehicle to go on a Sunday to the countryside with the family, but it would be ideal for a warlord. Although now that The Walking Dead returns
