The NZ army's new 15-ton eight-wheel-drive armored LAV (Light Armored Vehicle) was recently clocked at 109 km/h on a public motorway, one km/h short of its 110 km/h top speed and 19 km/h over the road's limit for so-called heavy vehicles. The driver was issued a $120 ticket, which will reportedly not be picked up by the Defense Department. The LAV is capable of handling the most brutal off-road situations while still remaining relatively car-like on the road. For those of you puzzling over the metric measurement, 109 km/h translates to a blistering 68 mph.
