Duramax Powered RIPSAW F4 Super Tank Is Fastest In The World

Tired of run of the mill off-road rigs?  Big Bro-dozers and ATVs elicit a yawn these days? We have the perfect cure for you. Dig the RIPSAW F4 super tank by Howe & Howe. They have been making tanks for years and here’s the latest version.

Built for extreme off-road enthusiasts, the RIPSAW F4 has the power to take you almost anywhere. The tank is engineered as an all-terrain vehicle with high-speed mobility. Its heavy-duty rubber tracks allow the vehicle to tackle sharp slopes and loose terrains with ease.

The RIPSAW F4 has a four-passenger carrying capacity so you can share the excitement. Simply enter through the gull-wing doors and buckle those seatbelts and off you go. Tipping the scales at a stout 10,000-pounds, this gigantic “sport tank,” has a towering ground clearance of 22-inches with heavy-duty rubber treads.

Intimidating to say the least.

It’s powered by a 6.6-liter Duramax turbodiesel engine generating 800 hp and 1000 lb-ft of torque, tuned by Pacific Performance Engineering. Connected to an Allison 1000 heavy-duty transmission, the tank is capable of a top speed of over 55 mph, making it the world’s fastest dual-tracked vehicle.

There is an 800hp 6.6 Duramax lurking in there.

Other high-tech features include a FLIR (forward-looking infrared) M625cs camera, pop-up spotlight, and several light bars. On the inside, there’s a heated steering wheel for operation in subzero climates, a CB radio, and even a dashboard with two iPads.

Since their company’s founding, Mike and Geoff Howe have worked tirelessly to create newer, better, and stronger vehicles. They are inventors, military contractors, actors, and entrepreneurial businessmen who are also driven to give back to their community. They take pride in every project. They are fueled by a shared passion and a united vision. Those principles define Howe & Howe’s history and enable the team to keep creating innovative solutions for clients worldwide.
