Ford Bronco ‘Brocky’ Off-Road Buggy

We’ve seen a lot of people do a lot of things with Ford Broncos in our time. But none of them quite compare to this insane one. Built to participate in the 2017 King of the Hammers off-road race with famed self-taught drifter Vaughn Gittin Jr. behind the wheel, this beautiful monstrosity is lovingly dubbed ‘Brocky.’ And let us tell you, it is a sight to behold.

You might not know it at first glance, but this buggy is actually a Ford Bronco – even though the only familiar parts look to be a bit of the body work and the badge. Its heavily modified shell was lowered onto a Jimmy’s 4×4 off-road chassis and loaded with an absurd 600 horsepower Ford Performance 427 V8. It’s also got an ATI Racing Transmissions SuperCase TH400 3-speed transmission, GearWorks 10-inch differentials that can be adjusted on-the-fly to adapt to the changing desert environment, 37-inch Nitto Trail Grappler tires, and a class-standard 20-inch of wheel travel in the front and 16 in the back. And while some of that might seem like overkill, this beast will need it to complete the grueling 165-mile desert race. [H/T: Maxim]
