Very cool truck, but what's with the driving style depicted in the promotional video?

Are there really that many teenagers walking around with over $450,000 to spend on a new truck to go "tear it up" in?

Definitely portals.. I guess when you're building the uber truck, you have to go with portals. I bet we will see this in the next James bond flick.


there's a market for even the most insane

Question is, will it fit in a Costco parking spot?

I think it's cool! But the cost is ridiculous.

ThisFabTrek had a 6x6 for a while, and while not on portals, I doubt it cost nearly that much. Apparently they sold it when they went to the US. Believe it or not, they swapped the 6x6 Defender for an 80's style conversion van. Talk about a step down!

Made for the middle east? please. This truck was designed exclusively for American rappers. Hell I wouldn't be shocked if Mercedes asked Jay-Z himself to approve the final design. I promise you that in years time from now you can walk up to any Miami club on Friday night and there will be five of these out front in all white rocking 6 chrome 24s

Just saw the baby brother at the club (no, not da' club!) lol

The thing is STUPID TALL!!! Pretty amazing and capable piece of sh!t, though, that I would be caught dead driving. Respect to the owner as it's already been off-roaded, dented the front skid, bent the dumb rocker exhaust, and somehow the RR door. And he doesn't even have plates yet! Haha. Must have thought those portals (which were amazing) made him even taller than reality.
