For sale: 12-seat, 700bhp monster truck
One million dollars is a lot of money. At current rates, that amount of wedge could buy you 109 Dacia Sanderos, sponsorship of 26,138 goats in Africa, or, um, a bijou studio flat in a stabby part of London.
But if you fancy being a bit more flippant with your mil, you could blow the whole lot on this: a 700bhp, 3.7-metre tall, 10-metre long, 6.8-tonne, 12-seat monster truck.
Christened the Sin City Hustler, it’s the handiwork of Arizona-based fabricators Big Toyz Racing Motors.
In a process spanning over three years, they’ve transformed nearly 500 metres of 2-inch metal tubing and normal-sized Ford Excursion into an elongated, car-crushing monster limo. And now it could be yours.
Powered by an 8.5-litre Ford big-block engine, we’re assuming most of those 700 horses are required just to get the Sin City Hustler rolling on its 170cm wheels.
Creature comforts include a set of clamshell air stairs (like a private jet), four-wheel-steer (like a GT3 RS) and two massive roof mounted air conditioners (like an office block.)
The designated driver sits in a centrally-mounted bucket seat, while 12 other race seats fill the cavernous interior - yep, that’s enough room for the whole Kardashian family to do the Baja 1000.
Or, perhaps, the ultimate hen do transport. After all, what screams ‘party’ louder than a flame-painted monster-limo?
Limousine building is, of course, an engineering problem we’ve tackled before on Top Gear, and experience has proved that it’s a lot harder than it looks. Luckily for potential buyers, the guys at Big Toyz Racing Motors have documented the making of Sin City Hustler in this incredibly lengthy build thread.
This, or a brand-new Sandero every week for the next two years?
