Looks like one they would have used in Northern Ireland when there was big problems there.

Bet it drives like a boat !!

Ahh, good, I was worried handling would have been negatively affected.

Perhaps the "ground effects" would come in handy if the need to run a few hot laps around a NASCAR super speedway ever arose....

I have seen those many times in my travels through northern Ireland. I believe they call them "Snatch" rovers. They need the "ground Effects" to keep from having petrol bombs rolled under them. If you have ever traveled down the Falls road in Belfast, or got lost in South Armagh, you will know what I mean.

Wow, nice link. Nothing like a little on sided reporting. Do you watch Fox news? Next thing you know, you will be asking me what foot I dig with, or where I go to school.

Hey sorry about that, no particular axe to grind here, just posted the link for the photo but your right, no place for sectarianism.
