Polaris Buggy Turned into 640 HP V8 Monster Truck

It’s really nice when people with ingenuity turn something that is relatively ordinary (a buggy) into something very special - a V8-powered monster truck. A company called High Lifter has taken a regular Polaris RZR buggy and, as their name suggests, has lifted it clean off the ground.



It is more or less, we say, a complete re-engineering job, especially on the suspension side, which seems to be completely redone, not just modified. Another interesting aspect of this mini-monster truck is the power output of the GM-sourced V8 engine - a whopping 640 hp.



It looks like it must be a real blast to drive, if a little top-heavy. We would really like to have a go in one of these, we must admit, as it seems like it is very entertaining to drive, while also being a very capable off-road machine. However, it does seem to lack sway bars, which is very dangerous for something this tall, but they can probably be added afterward, anyway!
