Not Your Father's Hummer


TheStar.com - When a Hummer won't do: Buy a Gurkha.
It can stop a bullet from an AK-47, shrug off a roadside bomb, and it makes a Hummer look like a chick car.

The $200,000 (U.S.) Gurkha is coming to a road near you
The first batch this year will be divided between the Candian military and the US military. The first civilian delivery is scheduled for a "well known personality" in California. Not Ahnold, but a friend of his.

8,620 kilograms, 150 kilometers per hour. Not bad for a bunch of Canucks. [Hat tip Gullyborg]
