Says it's has 2 300 liter tanks which can get it almost 2000 km. Converted to US units....

600 liters = 158 gallons
2000 kilometers = 1242 miles

Rough mileage = 1242/158 = 8

I mean it's only got a 6 cylinder turbo engine that has 168 bhp. Torque isn't specified anywhere, but I would bet this things gearing is crazy.

But yeah. I completely agree with that. You could have give good shop 100 grand and they could probably build you something from the ground up that was very similar.

Yes, a new rig could be done... and I am thinking a Semi Truck for me, but this is one BAD *** rig! You have to admit someone had lots of time, and great ideas!
