Expedition slides on Snow
So my cousin pulls into this spot so that we can get off and mess around in
the snow, the only thing was when he pulled in all four wheels were in the
snow, so it made for a interesting video of him backing out of the spot

on a steep incline.

720-hp Global XRS 7200 6x6 Expedition Vehicle Thunders
If the Earthroamer XV-LTS and Mercedes Zetros don't quite reach the level
of luxury-meets-off-road-fortitude you're looking for, may we suggest the
Action Mobil Global XRS 7200. This large expedition vehicle combines six
driven wheels of off-road fury with a luxuriously appointed living pod that
has the look of a chic city apartment. It brings comfort and style to the
farthest stretches of desert, highest reaches of mountains and deepest
sections of jungle. And it costs several times the average stationary home.

Düsseldorf...Inside the Global XRS 7200View all
Action Mobil designs some of the world's most extreme all-terrain
expedition vehicles out of its headquarters in the Austrian Alps. The
company got started more than 35 years ago when founders Stefanie and
Otfried Reitz, then advertising executives, were looking for a vehicle to
travel in through Africa for a fashion photo shoot. They needed something
rugged enough to navigate to photogenic backdrops of the veld but
comfortable enough to keep fashion models prettied, smiling and
camera-ready. Finding nothing suitable on the market, they developed their
own, realizing along the way that there was a real market for such a
Fast forward to 2014 and the Global XRS 7200, a highlight of the recent
Düsseldorf Caravan Salon. The large expedition vehicle has a grumbling
720-hp engine cranking its six wheels – that's more than double the horsepower of the
aforementioned XV-LTS or Zetros. A central tire inflation system ensures
that the tires are at the right pressure to effectively put all that power
to use over the variable terrain below. Action Mobil's "Arctic Kit" keeps
the truck running smoothly in cold weather.
The 18-ton 7200 is built atop a MAN chassis and measures 31.8 x 8.1 x 12.4
ft (L x W x H, 9.7 x 2.47 x 3.79 m), with its camper body occupying 23.6
feet (7.2 m) of that overall length. The all-terrain rover has dual 400-L
(105.7-gal) diesel tanks toward the center of its wheelbase and 140-L
(37-gal) black water and 250-L (66-gal) gray water tanks just forward of
the fuel supply. Fresh water comes from the onboard 720-liter (190-gal)
A rear lift makes it easy to carry and access a bike
Since an 18-ton truck-camper really limits one's maneuvering capabilities,
Action Mobil offers a rear motorcycle lift. The hydraulically controlled
rack lowers down to drop a much more nimble, two-wheeled form of
transportation into the driver's hands.
As impressive as the ultra-rugged exterior is, the spacious,
climate-controlled interior is arguably even more impressive due to a cozy,
elegant look with rich, grained paneling; stone flooring, counters and
tabletops; LED lighting and metal trim. The central kitchen area cooks up
meals on its Gaggenau induction cooktop and steam oven. Food can be found
in the single or dual 175-L (46.2-gal) refrigerators and single 150-L
(39.6.-gal) freezer, all custom-insulated by Action Mobil. A Miele
washer-dryer unit keeps the family's clothes fresh on extended journeys.
Inside the Global XRS 7200
Like virtually every other camper and RV out there, the Global XRS 7200 has
a convertible dinette set that doubles as a bed. The design includes
expanded sitting, eating and sleeping space via a second, smaller
convertible dinette just forward of the rear, two-berth master suite.
Just behind the Alcantara-trimmed driver's cab, which accesses the camper
by way of pass-through door, the bathroom houses a soft-closing bidet
toilet, sink and shower. The remainder of the interior fills out with a
generous amount of closet, cabinet and drawer space.
When you're spending days, weeks or months traveling on and off the grid,
keeping entertained can be a real concern. The Global XRS 7200 covers its
occupants with a 40-in HD TV, Apple TV media streamer, Bose audio system
and multi-TB hard drive for storing multimedia content. It is also equipped
with a satellite internet connection and wireless local area network.
The Global XRS 7200 features an entertainment package with 40-in HD TV
A 720Ah lithium-ion battery bank with 5,000-watt inverter keeps all
electrical equipment up and running. The batteries are charged off the
engine during driving, and a 1,440-watt roof-mounted solar array takes over
when the 7200 is camped out.
Action Mobil does not list pricing information for its custom made
expedition vehicles on its website, nor on the XRS 7200 information packet
it sent us. The price was quoted at €850,000 (US$1.1 million) on a
Caravan Salon video presentation, and we're sure it could quickly rise up
over €1 million depending upon the equipment and options selected by the

1927 Ford: Double-Trouble -- /BIG MUSCLE
• Gordon Tronson
In the world of hot-rodding there are few cars that are going to leave as
big an impression as this - the 1927 Ford Model T custom simply known as
"Double-Trouble". It rides on a custom-built tube chassis that's fabricated
from 1.5-inch tube. Is powered by two 4.6-liter modular V8s from Ford with
four, count 'em, FOUR Superchargers for
an approximate power output of around 1,200 hp. It also utilizes the
rear-end (inboard disc brakes and all) from an early Jaguar. It's a rolling
a Hot Wheels car and a masterpiece of engineering that is sure to make all
your naughty bits tingle.
