1100-HP Road-Legal Hypertruck Unveiled: 30 Travel, Sky-High Cost

Unleash Power: Supercharged V8 or Full Electric Drive Options

Scarbo Vintage, the mastermind behind the legendary Hoonipigasus, has recently unveiled its latest masterpiece, the SV Rover. This revolutionary “hypertruck” is designed to excel in both high-speed desert racing and intricate rock crawling.

After an extensive process spanning 14 years, the SV Rover has finally come to fruition. Originally conceived as a desert racing truck, similar to the highly coveted Ford Bronco DR, the finished product is now legal to use on public roads.

The SV Rover may bear a resemblance to the timeless Land Rover Defender, but it is in fact a one-of-a-kind creation, featuring specialized carbon fiber and aluminum exterior. It boasts advanced inboard pushrod suspension accompanied by front and rear air cups, granting an impressive 30 inches of overall wheel movement. For those who may question this measurement, we invite you to view the brief video clip below for proof.

The height control and valve settings, which can be customized by the user, play a crucial role in regulating the shock absorption of the 40-inch tires mounted on 20-inch forged wheels. These wheels are also equipped with a high-performance braking system consisting of six-piston Brembo calipers paired with 15.7-inch carbon ceramic rotors.

The SV Rover is an advanced pickup truck with a rear mid-engine and a supercharged V8 engine, capable of delivering an impressive 1,100 horsepower. While detailed information on the powertrain is not disclosed, it is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission featuring paddle shifters. Additionally, the vehicle boasts a spacious 65-gallon fuel cell. For those looking for a quieter ride, a 1,006-hp electric powertrain option is also available, utilizing a 75 kWh lithium-ion battery pack.

When it comes to its abilities off the road, be it in Baja or Moab, Utah, the SV Rover boasts the option of choosing between a two-wheel and four-wheel drivetrain. Additionally, it offers high and low-range transfer cases as well as front and rear lockers. As an added bonus, it also comes equipped with a four-wheel steering wheel.

Despite its appearance, the truck is surprisingly comfortable inside. The SV Rover boasts a sophisticated cockpit, featuring Alcantara upholstery and billet aluminum details. For a more sporty feel, the vehicle also offers the option of Sparco racing seats for its two passengers. The interior is equipped with two screens – a 12.3-inch gauge cluster and a 12.8-inch multimedia display placed in the center.

Indeed, it is equipped with a climate control system, a push-button start feature, and power locks and windows. On top of that, there is also a storage space at the back, although we question how well it functions with the powerful V8 engine situated just behind the seats.

Scarbo Vintage has yet to announce the release date and official cost of their road-worthy desert racer, however, according to Motor Authority, it is estimated to begin at $1.5 million. This may seem like a substantial sum for an all-terrain plaything, but unlike other off-road vehicles, no towing is necessary to enjoy its capabilities in Southern California’s rugged terrain.
