You Can Actually Buy One of the Murdered-Out Dune Buggies From ‘Westworld’
These all-terrain toys hit 60 mph in less than 5 seconds.
Some of the day-after raving that followed the season 2 premiere of HBO’s mind-bending Westworld concerned the debut of awesome, murdered-out Delos Inc. dune buggies.
Inquiries were posted to Reddit and Imgur regarding the mean machines’ manufacturer, and one user correctly identified the model as a Can-Am Maverick X3—specifically, the four-seater Max X RS Turbo R.
The only obvious difference is that the vehicles featured tearing up the sandy beaches of Westworld’s mysterious new park have beefier tires and no doors.
The entry-level Maverick X3 900 HO puts out a formidable 120 HP, but the top-of-the-line models featured in HBO’s hit sci-fi western squeeze an extra 52 horses out of the 900-cc Triple-cylinder engine courtesy of a turbocharger, as the name suggests.
This blasts the terrain-conquering toy to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds. For comparison, that’s the exact same time as this V12-powered 2017 Mercedes AMG S 65 Cabriolet.
It’s also the first factory 72-inch wide side-by-side ever and offers 14 inches of ground clearance—way more than you’ll get out of any car with commensurate acceleration.
All of four Can-Am’s Maverick X3 Max Turbo models will run over $20,000. If you want to rip it up like Westworld stars, you’ll need to buck up $29,400 for the “RS.”
