If you have the money and want a vehicle that looks like something you would see in a Hollywood movie, the Gurkha is the vehicle for you. It comes in three versions including the LAPV, MPV, and RPV. Late last year a version of the beast called the RPV Civilian Edition was launched and that version of the vehicle is street legal.
It’s gigantic and would be a handful to drive in traffic standing 98-inches tall, 99-inches wide, and 20-feet long. The massive Gurkha truck as a 141-inch wheelbase. This massive beast is a full foot wider than the already massive Hummer H1 Alpha. The Hummer was notorious for being as wide as a lane on many streets.
Power for the Gurkha comes from a 6.7L V8 turbo diesel with a 6-speed automatic transmission. Buyers can also opt for a 6.8L V10 gas engine with a 5-speed automatic. The truck also has a 2-speed transfer case and shift on the fly 4×4. Pricing is unknown, but it is certainly a very expensive piece of equipment. If the Gurkha looks familiar, it is the vehicle The Rock drove in Fast and Furious 5.
