The Warthog might be Master Chief's vehicle of choice in the Halo games, but once he sees the amphibious Scamander, we suspect he'll be putting in an official requisition for a new ride.

The off-road vehicle was originally envisioned by Peter Wheeler, owner of sports car manufacturer TVR for 23 years, but he passed away before it came to fruition. So his wife and a team of engineers made sure the vehicle was eventually built, and Evo magazine had a chance to take it for a spin. Long story short, it looks like a heck of a lot of fun.

 

On land the Scamander can reach a top speed of 120mph, and its 300 horsepower V6 engine can push it from 0 to 60 in about eight seconds. Which is actually pretty impressive given this beast can tackle any terrain on Earth, and isn't slowed down by even the shoreline. [YouTube via Autoblog]
