A Bentley Continental GT might be the final automobile we might think about for a tank conversion. But, right here we’re.
YouTube channel AcademeG, primarily based in Russia, posted video of the luxurious beast of a tank that is almost full. It nearly completely works and can handle to topple over any terrain. In the meantime, the British appeal and luxurious inside is alive and effectively, which is considerably hilarious to see in distinction.
Formally known as the Ultratank, the modified Bentley rides on actual tank treads and appears to haven’t any points paving a path wherever the motive force needs to go. Sadly, the video is in Russian, so we are able to solely collect data from what we watch. It seems there are just a few issues with the construct. About midway via, a tread comes off when the motive force makes a left flip. Motor1 reported it is resulting from a scarcity of rigidity within the tread itself, which is sort of an enormous drawback. Anytime the Bentley-turned-tank corners to rapidly, the treads generally tend to slide off.
Reportedly, the brake pedal does not work, both, so the motive force must deliver the hulking mass of British and Russian equipment to a halt by pure means.
Proper now, the tank will do about 31 mph and the loopy group behind the venture need it to go doubly quick for a prime velocity of 62 mph. That is greater than sufficient velocity to get wherever the tank must go. The workforce additionally must vogue a set of doorways for the tank finally, however we sort of just like the chopped and open look of the peculiar piece of engineering.
Nonetheless, hats off to those guys as a result of there’s a number of mad engineering occurring right here.
