Behold: the Bureko 6x6, a Chevrolet Silverado on steroids
Preparing for the apocalypse? We’ve found your new wheels
You may have noticed that we rather like giant, end-of-the-world style machinery here at TG Towers. Anything that looks like it could fend off an army of zombies or survive a meteor strike is likely to cause a bit of commotion in the office.
You’ll easily be able to guess our thoughts on the monster you see above then. This is the Bureko 6x6.
It’s a result of a collaboration between engineers from Germany and the Czech Republic – and is completely road legal.
The car starts life as a 4.2-litre V8 Chevrolet Silverado pickup before it arrives in the Czech village of Homole and sprouts an extra axle. It then gets an updated all-wheel drive system, monumentally-large springs and some boxy styling cues to take it to full off-road spec.
If you’re that way inclined, Bureko will leave the standard power output at 414bhp. However, considering that extra axle means a standing weight just shy of 3.5 tonnes, you’ll likely want to consider one of the optional power upgrades.
And if you’re going down that route it’d be remiss not to go for the full-fat 986bhp output (a nice round 1000hp in metric money) wouldn’t it? It’ll set you back an extra €84,900 on top of the €290,000 list price, but if that’s what one needs to pay for survival in a post-apocalyptic world then so be it.
The rest of the options list is also pretty special. You can spec a performance exhaust system and race-bred brakes (probably a wise choice) for on-road driving, as well as full undercarriage guards and both front and rear winches for when things get a bit trickier.
Bureko also says that any upgrade or customisation regarding the road-going accessories, off-road accessories or interior of the vehicle is possible on request. Go on then – what’s the one option you would ask for above anything else?
