The ‘Desert Storm’ Trophy Truck Is Made to Dominate Any Terrain

This murdered-out 4×4 is ready for war.

If you’re going to name a vehicle after a wartime operation, it’d better be tough as hell. 

EPTA Design’s “Desert Storm” Trophy Truck fits the bill. The London-based firm’s off-road concept looks like a cross between the Batmobile and a post-apocalyptic machine from Mad Max. 

A blacked-out body that’s slightly reminiscent of a vintage Mustang sits high on four aggressively-styled metal wheels surrounded by knobby tires.

Roof-mounted flood lights suggest that this thing could go for miles in total darkness. The cockpit is heavily protected with metal screens on the windows and what appears to be a hefty roll cage.

We don’t know what materials EPTA would use to build the 4×4’s shell—Hi Consumption says carbon fiber. Same goes for the Desert Storm’s powertrain, but given its purpose, we’d at least expect a turbo-charged V8, automatic transmission, and all-wheel drive.

Fingers crossed that EPTA can bring their badass creation to fruition.
