Putting A Bentley Continental GT On Tank Tracks – Because Russia

Leave it to the Russians to come up with the idea of taking a Bentley Continental GT and putting it on top of tank treads. The project dubbed the Ultratank is able to handle steep grades, goes off road and – well, it’s a Bentley that sits on top of tank treads.

Although its maiden voyage was a strong proof of a crazy concept, the luxury tank is far from perfect. When taking sharp turns, the treads slide off due to the lack in tension on the treads. It also only has a top speed of 31 mph (which one would believe is more than enough for something like this) but the team wishes to double those numbers. The brake pedal also doesn’t work yet but if anything were to get in the way of the Ultratrack, I’m sure the tank would win that accident.

If you are like me and can’t understand Russian, fast forward to the 5:30 mark to see when the Ultratank takes off. I promise it will be one of the more stranger, yet epic things you see today.
