"What the world needs now, is love, sweet love" sang Dionne Warwick in her 1966 black metal anthem. However, a company from the US disagree, instead believing what's really missing from the world, is a commercially available luxury tank.
Howe & Howe Technologies, based in Maine, USA have released the Ripsaw EV2 Extreme Luxury Tank. As you do...
It's based on a design for a military grade tank they made, which was reported to be "the fastest dual tracked vehicle ever developed" and that featured on the cover of monthly page turner Popular Science Magazine.
This peaked public interest in the Bat Mobile-looking runaround, and the company decided to start producing one for the high end luxury market. What they ended up with is what the How & Howe Tech themselves call a "handcrafted, limited run, luxury super tank, developed for the public."
Details of exactly what the Ripsaw is capable of are still currently under wraps. However, we do know that each one takes about six months to fabricate from scratch, it will be customisable to meet the prospective owners 'needs', and will set anybody genitally insecure enough to want one hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Judging from the video, the Ripsaw handles just about any terrain mother nature can throw at it. It looks like something that John Connor and his troops would do with when Sky Net inevitable accidentally create an army of Terminators that will try to enslave humanity.
However, we can't help but feel that the only people with bother the finance and desire required to own one are rappers with more money that sense, and bored 70 year old business men who're desperately trying to substitute their ever decreasing sexual virility.
