A total waste of money for the rich to splurge on for street cred.

A guy with a $300 deer rifle and some ammo and clear line of sight can stop it with little effort. I can think of about 20 ways to stop with the simple household equipment or parts and tools.

Fire, road spikes, chainsaw, rocks, and so forth.

Perfect transportation for the end of times isn't a vehicle at all.

The horse will serve you much better than that over priced piece of crap. Not to mention you'll easily save 300 grand even if you bought a small herd.

300 grand could be spent on things you might actually need.

The FLIR camera and " military grade emp protection device " are interesting but hardly worth that kind of money. As the gentleman above has stated, easy to stop that thing. Which means you'll be sitting there watching the bad guys on your FLIR camera as they swarm over this over priced toy and that's when the person(s) inside will realize they dropped over a quarter mil on a coffin with wheels.

I stand by the horse. For more reasons than I have time to explain. Just one thing. No one is getting very far in vehicles post shtf. At the start of it I suspect most roads will be gridlocked. But even the roads that aren't will be dangerous. That thing will draw all kinds of attention I assure you. Folks in rural areas where roads may be utilized will be keeping an eye out for trouble. Maybe most would just let you cruise on through but then again, maybe not.

Fuel. That thing has over a thousand ponies and it's likely pretty damn heavy. Throw in a few folks, their gear, water, food and maybe a few Jerry cans of fuel so your likely not even gonna squeeze 10 mpg out of it. If your not stopped and killed or forced to walk you might go a few hundred miles on the fuel you have. What's the plan when you run out of fuel?

If you must travel your best bet is to not be seen. The best way to do that is overland. I don't care what kind of capability that thing has, it's not getting far through the woods without a trail at least.

If you still want a versatile capable vehicle you can get or build your own for much less that will get you just as far as this hyped up luxury gimmick

I consider this more of a toy rather than an end of the world bug out vehicle but I'd be willing to bet I'd get just as far, if not farther than that thing with it. At a tiny fraction of the cost.

Is one that does not use fuel, and can be used to cut fuel.

A friend in SC told me it took him 8 hours to get from Charleston to Columbia during a hurricane evacuation. Some ran out of fuel that weren't prepared and service stations along the way ran out of fuel. That's without bad guys trying to steal or kill.

So a BOV might be only for one day's use unless one can get out early. The best plan if one is serious is to get out and learn to live on the land now before disaster strikes.

I am going to bug in as I don't think anyone is going to get far from home in a vehicle and I fear that what I don't anticipate could cost me my life at the worst or squash all my plans at the least.

I live in a wooded area so sunny spots change throughout the day. With your setup I could just move the whole deal to a different spot as needed.

A $350,000 Jeep Wrangler?
While that 800 horsepower is spinning the tires into chocolate donuts and burying itself my neighbor’s rusted Subaru Brat will cruise by with his kid’s in the back shooting at the zombies.

Oh not at all. If I was a millionaire I'd have one. It's cool.

Even then though I'd not use it after the world ends. It's not going far under those circumstances.

The old Stanley Steamer has a niche here. I've seen those run on coal or charcoal, as well as the more usual kerosene. The truck versions were pretty simple to service, and, being steam, were not demanding of expensive high strength alloys.

If I could afford one ... I'd get an Earth Roamer. I used to deliver supplies to their manufacturing plant in Colorado. Awesome on the inside and the outside.

I'd post pictures but since I started using Brave instead of Google or Firefox, I lost the ability to post pictures.

Looks nice but the "Special Builds" and Limited Edition vehicles can be a real PITA when it comes to service and parts in terms of just getting the parts and in terms of the costs.
