This Antarctic-Optimized Toyota Truck is For Sale


Anyone thinking of heading to the South Pole for an offbeat adventure? Your (heavily modified) chariot awaits you.

For anyone who has the deep desire to travel to the South Pole, we have to say you’re a bit of a lunatic. But if you do decide to risk it all, you’ll need a special type of vehicle to get you through the blazing snow if you want to avoid becoming a human popsicle. This heavily modified 2010 Toyota Tacoma is just that vehicle, and it happens to be for sale. The result of "three years of R&D by the world’s best vehicle engineers and designers," the "Polar" truck became the fastest land vehicle to ever reach the South Pole back in 2011.

Power comes from a supercharged 4.0-liter V6 with 380 horsepower paired to an automatic gearbox that sends power to all four wheels. Of the many customized features, some of the stand outs include 44" wheels, a nine-ton electric winch, crevasse-protection bars and anti-slide snow anchors, custom roof rack, insulated cab with roll cage, racing seats and harnesses, and a satellite GPS communication system. There are also solar panels that power the truck’s systems when the engine is shut off. It’s being sold as is from the UK. The highest bid was $52,600 but the seller’s reserve price has yet to be met. This thing is a total bad ass.
