The world is a bit of a crazy place right now. The panic surrounding the coronavirus pandemic is unavoidable, as the virus wrecks havoc on the world’s industries. With the economy taking hit after hit, the uneasy feelings that many people are facing right now aren’t unwarranted. These feelings though have left many running out to stock up on supplies as a full blown lockdown looms. For those of you are not content with simply staying put during this time, we would like to turn your attention to the ultimate bug-out vehicle: the Armortruck SUV.
More akin to something you’d see on the battlefields of Mars than on your local street corner, the Armortruck SUV is ready to take on a post-pandemic world. While it might only be a concept at this point, we certainly wouldn’t mind having one parked in our driveways. Penned by the talented Milen Ivanov, this space-age military vehicle looks incredible in these renderings. The level of detail combined with the video-game esque shape is exactly the type of goodness one would expect from Ivanov.
According to Motor1, the Armortruck SUV concept is a military vehicle, and as such it wears a body constructed from steel, titanium, Kevlar, and carbon fiber. Although, keep in mind, it’s a rendering.
To further ensure that the occupants are protected, all of the glass is constructed from an incredibly strong multilayer material. Behind all that armor sits a myriad of military-grade equipment, including thermal night vision and a roof-mounted oxygen regeneration and filtering system. Not the worst thing to have when something is spreading through the air. The artist envisions the SUV containing a hybrid powertrain, which should produce a combined 2,000 horsepower.
So while you can’t go ahead and order yourself a Armortruck SUV to help fight off the coronavirus, Ivanov deserves some props for this badass rendering. Even if this vehicle never finds its way into production, we’d love to see its design utilized somehow.
