Driving a real-life Tonka toy
The Bell B50D is one of the biggest dumper trucks in the world. Honestly, it’s huge. Matthew Jones takes to the wheel...

Largely because of the numbers. It's 10832mm long, 4067mm wide and weighs 34,520kg. It's an absolute colossus. Stand it on its end - you may need some friends for this - and it'll reach up nearly four floors. And it'll take 17.6 S-Classes to match its mass. Looking at it, you could probably park two of them in its tippy bit (which I'm reliably informed is called the body).
