Now’s the time to buy this eight-seat Monster Truck
‘Mayhem’ is up for auction with a guide price of between £50,000 - £60,000
Here’s a stat for you – apparently there are only nine Monster Trucks residing in the UK at this current point in time. Four of those trucks are known as ‘ride trucks’ – which feature extra seats in their truck beds so that Joe Public can experience that car-crushing joy.
Fancy being a part of that exclusive owners’ club? You’ll be wanting to bid on this – a Chevrolet Silverado better known as ‘Mayhem’. Crikey.
It’s heading across the block at the Bonhams MPH December auction and is expected to fetch between £50k - £60k. It’s a proper business investment though and has been working as a fairground ride at shows since it was brought to the UK in 2013.
It was built in that same year by TNT Monster Trucks in New York. The base is a Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD pickup, and Mayhem still deploys the standard 6.0-litre V8 engine. There’s an uprated transmission though, as well as 66-inch wheels, rear crab steering and dual control so the front-seat passenger can slam on the brakes.
Oh, and the air conditioning and radio both still work, just in case you were worried about a lack of creature comforts.
Has there ever been a more perfect vehicle for the times we’re living in? We think not.
