Terradyne Gurkha LAPV

If things go apocalypse bad, there is a vehicle up for auction for that. Collecting Cars has a civilian example of the Terradyne Gurkha LAPV. (Light Armoured Patrol Vehicle) It boasts everything you would need, including a minimum B4 armour level rating, two fuel tanks, a heavyweight winch and a roof-mounted escape hatch. No machine guns though, this is the civilian version. The Terradyne Gurkha is based on the chassis of a Ford Super Duty F450 and was intended for law enforcement, though this example was used as a “private security model.” A 6.7-litre V8 has 25,335km on the odometer.
