With that huge splash about the Apocalypse or the Armageddon or the Judgment Day (global warming, nuclear war, zombie outbreaks, worldwide economic collapse, etc) we often find ourselves pondering what the future has in store for us.

It is hard to accept this harsh reality that as a species, our human race is not going to be around forever. Sooner or later, the judgment day could come in the forms of many nasty events.

In such apocalyptic situation, we can’t help but feel a little edgy about how we would survive, what supplies we would want with us, where we would go, how we would get armed and be protected against hordes of hostile threats and of course what car or vehicle we would use as our trusty stallion.

When the world is in chaos of such sinister events where infrastructure wiped out, civilization crumbled, you are going to need such a steed that is stronger, bolder and more capable than a regular luxury vehicle to help you travel around most in the terrains and protect you from robbers and other wild things
