Rarely i have come across a vehicle which truly grasps my mind to attention other than the Panhard VBL "Véhicule Blindé Léger". A purpose built 4x4 with the sole intent of comprising all aspects of off-roading and fulling its role as a military armored vehicle.
The following video says it all.

Be sure to see the specs of the vehicle at the bottom end of the page of the first web link.
Any of you 4x4 nuts think you've got a better one? Comments?
