When monster truck meets an amphibious car, you get the grenade-proof, 3.3-ton Aton Impulse Viking. Despite its monstrous stance, it's powered by an ample 1,770cc engine that generates 82 hp and 98 lb-ft of torque, enabling it to hit 37 mph on land and 9.3 mph in the water. This beast can tackle 38° inclines, and its low center of mass give it 42° of sideways tilt before the chance of tipping over. Since it rides on giant balloon tires, the driver can adjust tire pressures at any time directly from the cabin.
