Just one of two examples worldwide, the Ford F550-based 2015 Terradyne Gurkha RPV is a street legal armored vehicle that you can actually own. It’s powered by powered by a 6.7-liter turbodiesel V8 generating 300 horsepower, mated to a six-speed 6R140 automatic transmission and a shift-on-the-fly transfer case. The exterior is finished in matte black and offers B7/STANAG II levels of ballistic protection armor, complete with a 40-gallon fuel tank, an intercom system, siren, 20″ Hutchinson beadlock wheels, a winch, a rotating roof hatch, and more.



This owner purchased the vehicle back in 2015 and has since driven it just over 1,000 miles. It includes all the original equipment spreadsheet, manuals, an additional set of tires, and a clear Wisconsin title in the seller’s name. With the technical stuff out of the way, we can get back to the fun features, which include a manually-operated rotating roof hatch with a slewing ring, mesh window guards, a Class IV hitch, front / rear tow hooks, LED exterior lighting, heavy-duty bumpers, and an integrated Warn 16.5ti winch and roller fairlead.
