The automotive news cycle is a peculiar one. Report on it long enough, and it’ll start to seem like a torrent of horsepower figures, Nürburgring lap times, never-ending lists of optional extras and, sometimes, sensible price tags. But take a step back and you’ll notice, dotted throughout the yearly news feed, gems of absolute automotive insanity — cars and trucks that technically fit into certain categories, but live on another planet entirely. Take our word for it: There are still many characters and personalities hidden throughout the automotive realm who still have a sense of humor vast enough to build and put these monstrosities on the road.
The F250R MegaRaptor
It’ll eat an F-150 Raptor for breakfast.
A Defender on Steroids
It’s certainly not your typical East Coast Defender build.
The 8×8 Russian Overlander
Russia seems to have a penchant for building ridiculous all-terrain vehicles.
A Jeep With No Equal
It’s packing a lot more than just a lift kit and a matte black paint job.
More Luxury Than Most Can Handle
It’s got portal axels, a V12 and cupholders that heat your drink.
