This is the first ever “luxury super tank”, the Ripsaw EV2. Brogue has a great fondness for Donald Southerland’s Sergeant Oddball in Kelly’s Heroes, so we got understandably excited seeing this high-speed super tank originally designed and built for the military being made available to the public. The EV2 (short for Extreme Vehicle 2) has supercar performance and can go from 0-60 in 3.5 seconds, and reaches a top speed of 80mph thanks to its rear-mounted 600 horsepower diesel engine. Sensibly, the gun and most of the body armour have been removed, but the EV2 is still perfect for taking on all terrains including ice, snow and sand. The luxury part? You can spec the interior with rare-skin seating and a touchscreen entertainment system – and the price will run well into the hundreds of thousands. Production numbers will be limited and your ride could take up to six months to build. But to have your very own tank? Well worth the wait, we say.
