Even Halo's Master Chief Would Be Jealous Of This The High-Speed Amphibious ATV

The Warthog might be Master Chief’s vehicle of choice in the Halo games, but once he sees the amphibious Scamander, we suspect he’ll be putting in an official requisition for a new ride.

The off-road vehicle was originally envisioned by Peter Wheeler, owner of British sports car manufacturer TVR for 23 years, but he passed away before it came to fruition. So his wife and a team of engineers made sure the vehicle was eventually built, and Evo magazine had a chance to take it for a spin. Long story short, it looks like a heck of a lot of fun.

On land the Scamander can reach a top speed of 190km/h, and its 223kW V6 engine can push it from zero to 100 in about eight seconds. Which is actually pretty impressive given this beast can tackle any terrain on Earth and isn’t slowed down by even the shoreline. [YouTube via Autoblog]
