UPDATE: Video of the Alton F-650 is available
click above for high-res gallery of the Alton F-650 XUV

We've seen some outrageous F-650-based vehicles like this before (the DeBerti for one), but for some reason, the Alton F-650 XUV jumped out at us at the Chicago Auto Show. Perhaps we were already focused on Ford's Work Solutions trucks in the vicinity, but this insane beast just put our DSLRs on autopilot. The F-650-based XUV was built by Alton Manufacturing and carries a GVWR of 25,999 lbs. That makes the 660 ft-lbs of torque generated by its 7.2L Caterpillar engine seem paltry. Besides the big-rig-meets-Excursion bodywork, your nearly $200,000 expenditure for this XUV will get you hardwood floors, custom captains chairs, a 42-speaker sound system, two drop-down 16-inch TVs plus a 42-inch plasma, four computer workstations, plus a train horn. Oh, you'll also get bragging rights for the biggest, baddest truck in 99% of the world's neighborhoods.

      Agreed, the ultimate Prius crusher. I bet if you dug deep enough you'll find that Tim "the toolman" Allen had something to do with this.

      Wow.

      I guess I'm ahead of the game, I've got an F850. ;-)

      Though, mine is a dumptruck, so it isn't quite as fashionable. =-(

      (By the way, my truck has less power with a higher GVWR and it gets around just fine thanks to having a 5x2 transmission. Trucks like this make up for a lack in HP with torque and gearing.)

      What's really disappointing, for that kind of money (and yes, its a stupid truck, but ignoring that for a minute), is the apparent lack of design/build quality that went into it. I mean, look at the rear bumper shot (3/5). Not only does that not look "factory," in fit and finish, it doesn't even look like they got the basic angles/proportions correct. It almost looks like a really bad photoshop attempt. You'd think that $200k would get you a bit more these days.
