Off-Roading Is Much More Fun If You Have An LS V8-Engined Tank

Off road mad man BJ Baldwin has a new ride - a heavily modified armoured car with 800bhp. Looks fun, no?

Remind me later

OK, so the vehicle this is based on - a Ferret Scout - is technically an armoured car and not a tank, but it’s still spectacularly awesome. Its original six-cylinder, 130bhp Rolls Royce engine has been ditched for something a little more potent: an 800bhp General Motors LS V8. It’s good for 26 inches of suspension travel at the front, and a massive 36 inches at the rear.

We want a go…
