This murdered-out 4×4 is ready for war.
If you’re going to name a vehicle after a wartime operation, it’d better be tough as hell.
EPTA Design’s «Desert Storm» Trophy Truck fits the bill. The London-based firm’s off-road concept looks like a cross between the Batmobile and a post-apocalyptic machine from Mad Max.
A blacked-out body that’s slightly reminiscent of a vintage Mustang sits high on four aggressively-styled metal wheels surrounded by knobby tires. Roof-mounted flood lights suggest that this thing could go for miles in total darkness. The cockpit is heavily protected with metal screens on the windows and what appears to be a hefty roll cage.
We don’t know what materials EPTA would use to build the 4×4’s shell—Hi Consumption says carbon fiber. Same goes for the Desert Storm’s powertrain, but given its purpose, we’d at least expect a turbo-charged V8, automatic transmission, and all-wheel drive.
Fingers crossed that EPTA can bring their badass creation to fruition.
