I didn't know they built 2 of them.

Didn't the one they took on the Gumball breakdown?

Only one, this is number 2 of the cars they brought to the rally. They have that other ugly GTRish thing

If it's like the original it has this:

The basic configuration of the newly designed vehicle included a 5.7-liter Chevy V8 engine, a truck axle for the rear axle, front racing tires by Hoosier, rear 4×4 mud tires by Interco., and the suspension system of Baja racing trucks. The design and development process took nine months and cost several million dollars.

Trans I dunno, probably C6 transaxle

I pulled the info from Wiki I don't know personally. They look like swampers to me

I don't think it broke down during Gumball but heard it wasn't prepared to face rain that happened on the first leg of Gumball so they just transported it to the next location.

that's exactly what happened. It wasn't going to handle the rain without leaking

To answer a few questions:


  • This is the same car that was at Gumball 3000.
  • It didn't break down but the rain was too much and it wasn't prepared to deal with that.
  • It is powered by Chevy V8 from a Camaro.
  • There is no interior photos as the Tumbler's interior wasn't 100% finished when I took the photos.
  • Yes, it was a beast!
I wrote a rather long blog post about it...
