This V8-powered armored truck also happens to be for sale.
You could go out and buy a new GMC Hummer EV (just not the sold-out Edition 1) and will very likely drive home very happy (whenever it arrives in showrooms). Plenty of off-road adventures await. Alternatively, and for around the same money, you could go stick with tradition by way of a 6.7-liter V8 powering the Terradyne Gurkha Light Armored Patrol Vehicle (LAPV).
Based on a Ford F-450 Super Duty chassis, this custom-built, 15,742-mile 2017 Terradyne Gurkha is currently up for auction on Collecting Cars. Its overall condition is claimed to be excellent, which makes sense given the low mileage count. Not only is it a beast off-road, but it also boasts a B4 armor level rating.
Hey, everyone has enemies. Some are just far more dangerous than others. Painted Matte Granite Grey, the exterior features a full LED lighting kit, 20-inch wheels with internal bead locks, and even a roof-mounted escape hatch for when you're completely out of other survival options.
Other cool items include 40-gallon primary and 80-gallon secondary fuel tanks, an Alpine audio system, a battery recharge system with auto eject, exterior and interior intercom, and military-spec window glass. The off-roading equipment list is impressive: Fox shocks, heavyweight 16.5ti winch, front differential lock, and an onboard high-output air compressor.
Inside you'll find black and red leather with diamond quilting, contrast stitching for all six passengers, and a center console with backlit switches and a map light. Of course, a vehicle this big requires a standard reverse camera and rear proximity sensors. Whoever places the winning bid will definitely be getting something very unique but not particularly fuel-efficient. Still, it's got body armor and bulletproof glass. Those two things alone are worth the price.
Speaking of which, the highest bid, as of this writing, has reached $65,500. The auction ends late in the afternoon this Sunday, December 12. Will the bidding hit or even surpass the $100k mark? It's hard to say because this thing is very niche.
