Terradyne Gurkha RPV Civilian Edition

What happens when you combine a Ford F-550 with a tank? You get something pretty close to this unreal Gurkha all-terrain vehicle from the Canadian defense company Terradyne. This particular model of the armored vehicle is dubbed the ‘civilian edition’, but don’t be fooled, there is nothing tame about this thing.

Capable of taking 7 millimeter armor piercing rounds, ramming through chained gates, and driving in up to 30 inches of water, the Gurkha is ready to take on downright apocalyptic situations. With a 6.7-liter V8 turbodiesel capable of pumping 300 horses and 660 pound feet of torque via a six speed automatic to all four wheels, Terradyne’s 13,500 pound monster can do more than just protect – it can sprint out of tight spots at a top speed of just under 70 miles per hour. All things said, this is the armored car we want in our own back yard when the white walkers make it over the wall. Prices are set at $278,000. [Purchase]
