When a Hummer just won't cut it, think Force Protection
The svelte 4x4 pictured above is Force Protection's Cougar, a "medium mine-protected vehicle" that makes a Humvee look, um, delicate.
The massive vehicle is nearly 20 feet long and over 8 feet wide, and has a curb weight of 15 tons. Motivated by a 330 hp Caterpillar diesel, the Cougar seats up to ten passengers, and everyone gets a four-point harness.
You just know that someone, somewhere is planning a candy-apple-red customized Cougar with another five tons worth of subwoofer's for SEMA. Don't say we didn't warn you.
(Thanks for the tip, Finished.Law.School!)
