Check out this Russian Bentley Ultratank the wildest off-road Bentley ever conceived. The idea of chopping up a $150,000 Bentley Continental GT and turning it into a tank is wild.
Watch this video of the luxury “Bentley Ultratank” bombing through dirt and over jumps.
From JalopNik: I don’t speak Russian, and I’m not exactly an expert in tank engineering, but here’s what I gathered: The team built a giant tracked platform out of steel tubing. For suspension, they mounted four bogie assemblies on each side, each with a single pivoting suspension arm that carries four wheels.
Each of the bogie assemblies has a “trailing arm” (if you will) with a long coilover mounted to it. That coilover, which is bolted to the platform on the other end, is actually a shock from an Audi A6 mounted inside a Toyota Celica shock body, which with a spring mount threaded onto it.
