In December 2011, the Polar Expedition Vehicle by Ian Nisbett Design will attempt to smash the Guinness World Record for the fastest Antarctic land crossing- exactly 100 years since the previous record holder’s accomplishment. The PEV also represents a new era in faster, more flexible polar exploration. The bio-fueled vehicle uses half the fuel of similar vehicles and also uses solar panels to further reduce its carbon footprint. Hit the jump to watch this bad boy in action!
Aside from aiming to break the world record of 2 days, 21 hours, and 21 minutes, the PEV is also pushing the limits of technology, and incorporates the latest in real-time GPS satellite communication and navigation, as well as cutting edge survival gear, research materials, and scientific equipment.
Power: supercharged 320 BPH, 4L V6 engine, 44″ wheels, long travel adjustable suspension, 32 gears and custom axles for the toughest terrain.
Safety: crevasse protection bars, anti-slide snow anchors, crush-proof cabin, real-time GPS tracking and intelligent on-board safety system.
