Great moment that a Bentley equipped with 81MPH tracks hits, because the makers claim that the & # 39; Ultratank & # 39; & # 39; is the world's fastest tracked vehicle

- The vehicle is made by combining a Bentley Continental GT with a tank
- Makers say they hope to get closer to the 200 km / h that the unchanged car can reach
This is the incredible moment that a Bentley equipped with caterpillar tracks reaches 81 mph – the makers claim to be the world's fastest caterpillar vehicle.
The classic engine is usually associated with luxury cruising instead of off-road driving, but a group of Russians behind the Bentley Ultratank project was determined to merge the two.
The impressive vehicle was made by combining a Bentley Continental GT with elements of a tank.
Despite reaching 81 km / h, makers say they are still not ready, and hope to get closer to the 200 km / h the unchanged car can reach.

The car is raised a few feet by the formidable side-mounted caterpillars that allow it to ride on rough and bumpy terrain
In images of the project being shot up, it shows the Bentley with its tracks reaching the amazing speed.
The designers who lead the project claim that their Bentley Ultratank is the world's fastest tracked vehicle.
The project has encountered several obstacles that need to be overcome, including ways to open the doors to get in and out with the rails in place.
The Russian team used a tank-like track system to turn the chic car into a military vehicle

The purpose of the test run shown in the images was to push the device to 81 mph, which they achieved.
But now the team says it's back to the drawing board to try and make it go even faster.
The Russians are working on the project plan to redesign the frame, replace the tracks for something even faster and optimize the controls to improve maneuverability.
Despite the low speed, the tank can cover steeper slopes and rougher terrain than the unchanged original.
Back in May of this year in a video titled & # 39; Bentley Ultratank: The Beginning & # 39 ;, tinkers from the AcademeG YouTube channel tinkered with the Continental in their workshop before removing the wheels from the vehicle for huge steps.
