O público que passar no estande da Toyota poderá ver uma das picapes Hilux que realizaram uma expedição inédita pelo pólo norte, percorrendo mais de 1.000 quilômetros, durante sete dias. Para suportar as situações extremas de terreno (neve) e temperatura (cerca de 35º negativos) foram feitas diversas modificações na mecânica e carroceria dos automóveis, o que também conferiu um visual imponente ao modelo.
As modificações vão desde a instalação de aquecedores no motor e no tanque de combustível, até rodas de 15 polegadas e pneus especiais para neve de 38 polegadas, além de acessórios.
Para viabilizar esta aventura, foi realizada uma parceria entre a Toyota, o programa Top Gear da televisão britânica BBC e a empresa Artic Trucks, responsável pela preparação das Hilux. Vale ressaltar que o motor das Hilux que chegaram ao Pólo Norte é o original 3.0 D-4D, com 136 cv de potência. Trata-se do mesmo propulsor que equipa a Hilux comercializada no Brasil.

Thomson Reuters Eikon Polar being built in Iceland
In December 2011 a three man team will set out in one of our Arctic Trucks built vehicles with the aim of beating the old Guinness World Record set in 2005 going from Patriot Hills to South Pole in under 3 days with an average speed of nearly 16km/h to mark the 100 years anniversary of the first successful attempt by Roald Amundsen.
The challenge is to improve the current Guinness World Record, driving from Patriot Hills on the Antarctica coast to the South Pole, over 1100 km distance each way
The vehicle used for this attempt is an AT44 built on Toyota Tacoma with a unique styling by Ian Nisbett Design.

Extreme AMPHIBIOUS Russian offroad vehicle: Aton-Impulse VIKING-2992
4x4xAMPHIBIOUS, VIKING combines the best of extreme off-road with internal floatation and water-jet powered amphibious capability.
The ATON IMPULSE VIKING-2992 is a unique special purpose vehicle, ideal for heavy industry, exploration, arctic use, flood-relief, NGOs, rescue and emergency services. VIKING is the only amphibious off-road vehicle in the world to have passed through certification to meet UN/ECE regulations for unrestricted ON-ROAD USE.
VIKING's world-leading amphibious capabilities are based around its purpose-designed flotation construction, centrally mounted engine and powerful water-jet propulsion enable it to ford open water at speeds of up to 15 km/h. The vehicle's wheels may be optionally engaged while in amphibious mode, providing unique ability to cope with shallow water and to transit the challenging littoral zone, where other vehicles commonly become stuck in soft mud.
Off-road, VIKING is overwhelmingly superior to comparable amphibians, with cross-country ability akin to tracked vehicles. High maneuverability, turn-over resistance and endurance provide safety and comfort in remote or hazardous areas.
With a curb weight of only 1.46 tonnes, riding on giant 1300x600x533 tires, VIKING's exceptionally low ground pressure enables it to "float" on soft snow surfaces and avoids damage to sensitive environments. VIKING has independent pneumatic front and rear wheel suspension with adjustable clearance and a tire air-pressure adjustment system operable from the cab while driving the vehicle.
VIKING's is designed for security and endurance rather than high speed, which in any case is hazardous on rough terrain. Top speed on-road is 50 mph at 16.8 mpg; off-road at 11.8 mpg, currently limited by the tires (cost $700 each) speed rating. ATON IMPULSE is bringing out new, higher-speed rated, custom tires, as well as bullet proof tires. More powerful engine models will be fitted in future models.
The VIKING-2992 will for the first time be available for international purchase in late 2012.
