This is What Would Happen if Lamborghini Made Tanks…

A necessity for anyone with self-indulgent aspirations. 

The Ripsaw EV2 luxury supertank was dreamed up by a pair of brothers from Maine, Mike and Geoffrey Howe, of Howe and Howe Technologies for the U.S military. Because of its provenance the EV2 is literally the ultimate conveyance for crossing the toughest terrain, in complete comfort.

Dressed in Army boots the Ripsaw is a high speed super tank, actually its the fastest and most agile dual tracked vehicle ever developed, serving as an unmanned light tank, deployed ahead of convoys or sent on surveillance missions in place of human soldiers.

In civilian clothing the Ripsaw retains its speed courtesy of a 600 hp Duramax turbo-diesel engine, which will propel it to a top speed of 75 mph–IN A TANK! Giving the Ripsaw it’s agility is a Lamborghini-esque chassis fabbed from aerospace-grade aluminum and high-strength steal, which joins 13.4-in of suspension travel and 21.5-in of ground clearance.

Continuing with the Lamborghini theme, ingress into the 2-person, air-conditioned interior happens through a pair of automatic gullwing doors, duh. Occupants are treated to eight-way leather racing buckets, a reverse camera, GPS navigation, a DVD player, and a reflective windshield.

The Ripsaw will absolutely not be allowed on public roads, limited to private property and off road parks, no permit is required for operation, but the manufacturer does specify all owners must attend a one-day driving course before taking delivery.

If you want one of the handcrafted super tanks it will set you back at least $295,000 before, getting into the luxury or performance packages. Each one takes up to 6 months to complete, so order now and it should arrive in time for next summer.
