*Warning* you will cream your pants at the thought that this truck can DRIVE away from a 7lb block of C4 under your rear axle. Heavily armored, 19mm thick glass, can survive several hits from RPGs. Diesel.. big.. bad ass....

Just a sick truck.

Kleenexes are on the table.

Looks nice. I have never seen one before. I imagine they get crappy mileage.

You say they are featured in Top Gear, is that a magazine?
Top Gear is "la premier" in motoring television, based out of London, UK., they review mostly European cars (duh) but they come across the pond sometimes.

Here's the YT of the Top Gear "review"

Cool.

It is nice to see more media shifting over to internet, instead of so many staying with TV, even after the changes that have been made to TV.

My opinion;
Too big, too heavy, parts are likely a bear to get (and spendy) also it undoubtedly gets very poor fuel mileage...
I also bet it won't fit most garages or parking spaces, and is likely a pain to drive on city streets.

Enjoy!

Did you watch it drive over cars? Parking spaces are the least of your worry ;).. I bet it gets better mileage than some people's Suburbans or 460 powered trucks

Driving over cars will get you a short trip to jail or a 12 gage load as a sign of appreciation.
Driving over cars is not a big deal (unless you are a 14 year old monster truck fan), most large tired 4WDs can do it.

Just not a practical vehicle.

Enjoy!
