    The sections of 44-gal drum being used as front wheel guards are an ingenious touch.
    Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

              Looks ok from the front and rear. Things go a bit awry from the side angles though.

                  Imagine if you can back from a bushwalk with your dog & you found a couple of those attached to her?!

                      Didn't know that this thing even existed until last night. Alfa Romeo body thrown over a Dodge Viper (Stradale version)

                      Pretty expensive asking price for a Viper:
                      https://www.motor1.com/news/73152/up...of-nine-built/

                      From the Wikipedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alfa_Romeo_Giulia_TZ

                      The TZ3 was built in two forms, celebrating Alfa Romeo's centenary (1910-2010) in two different heritages. Zagato TZ3 Corsa

                      The Alfa Romeo TZ3 Corsa is the track version of the TZ3 (hence the name TZ3 Corsa, corsa meaning race in Italian) built to celebrate 100 years (a century) of Alfa Romeo in racing. The Corsa is a one-off car that was first presented at, and won, the 2010 Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este in Italy. This unique car, based on the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione, was made for German collector Martin Kapp and is not intended for sale or for competitions.

                      The car weighs 850 kg (1,874 lb) thanks to its carbon fiber frame and hand beaten aluminium body and has a 420 hp (313 kW) dry sump V8 4.2 litre engine. The car has a 6-speed sequential gearbox, it reaches a top speed of over 300 km/h (186 mph) and it can accelerate from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.5 seconds.

                      The chassis is a carbon-fiber monocoque with some tubular elements. The suspension setup, front and rear, are double wishbones, with pushrod actuated coil springs, and dampers from Ohlins.[8]Zagato TZ3 Stradale

                      The Alfa Romeo TZ3 Stradale is the road version of the TZ3 (hence the name TZ3 Stradale, stradale meaning road in Italian), designed by Norihiko Harada of Zagato, and was built to celebrate 100 years of Alfa Romeo on the road. The TZ3's chassis is based on the Dodge Viper ACR-X, and has been re-bodied to suit road conditions. Only nine units of the vehicle have been made.[9]

                      The TZ3 is powered by the ACR-X's odd-firing 8.4-liter Viper all-aluminum 90° OHV 2-valve V10, but its power has been reduced, this time boasting 600 horsepower (450 kW; 610 PS) at 6100 rpm, and 560 pound-feet (760 N⋅m) of torque at 5000 rpm.[9] Redline is reached at 6250 rpm. All of this power is delivered to the rear wheels, via a 6-speed Tremec TR6060 manual transmission.

                      The interior design is mainly the same as a regular Viper, but the badges change to Alfa Romeo.

                      The body and the frame come from the ACR-X, which are manufactured with SMC & rim panels over a tubular space frame.[9]

                      The brake discs, which are 2-piece, come from StopTech, and the calipers are from Brembo.

                      The steering wheel is rack-and-pinion, with power assist.

                      The suspension setup for front and rear are A-arms, with coil-over shocks and stabilizer bars.
