Extreme, bro.

I’m not going to lie, I’m a fan of muscle cars. When I finally got the chance to purchase my own, I made sure it had a V8 engine, at least 300 horsepower, manual transmission, and could be heard down the street to the annoyance of my neighbors. She roars and I love it.

But as much as I love the pure muscle of my ride, it’s hard to fathom getting in and driving a luxury tank that has over twice as much horsepower. But hey, if that’s your thing, get you some of this…

700-Horsepower Luxury Tank Can Crush Everything In The Suburbs

Howe and Howe Technologies developed a vehicle that is basically the vehicular version of the dude at the gym who everyone knows is on steroids. The Ripsaw EV2 is an “extreme vehicle,” according to the manufacturer, and I can’t think of a better way to describe it.

The Ripsaw is a 700-horsepower monster that goes from 0 to 60 in just three seconds, which will come in handy if you ever find yourself in urban warfare, I guess. Its power comes from a 6.6 liter V8 engine, so a tank of gas is probably going to cost you more than your student loans.

While this thing looks like something meant for desert warfare on the outside, the interior has quite the different vibe. It’s considered a luxury vehicle meant for recreation, with high-end material coating the seats and a dashboard that’ll make Batman blush.

So if you’ve got an extra $400,000 to throw around, get yourself a Ripsaw and run over your neighbor’s puny BMW while screaming “EXTREEEEEME” out the window.
