We’ve always been fascinated with big things, that’s a fact. Just look at how much we’re intrigued with gargantuan modes of transportation like the Titanic, the Airbuses, or the Boeing 747s. Even with today’s modern technology, it’s pretty amazing that these vehicles can seemingly defy the laws of physics simply by moving their steel-made, hundred-ton asses around. Now, if we already have these massive things on the sea and in the sky, what about the roads and the highways? Check out this list of colossal land vehicles we’ve found.
Nope, that’s not a really small guy in the photo, but a really big Wily’s Jeep replica owned by a Sheik. Why? Well, this is the same Sheik who bought seven Mercedes SELs way back in 1983 because he wanted one for each day of the week. So the real question here, my friend, is “why not?”
That’s Big Red, ladies and gents. A 1.5 scale Volkswagen Bug that was built on a truck chassis. How colossal this vehicle is? Well, it’s so massive it can easily crush smaller VW bugs if the driver wants to. But if you want to get the exact measurements, it’s 9 feet tall, 22 to 23 feet long, and 8 feet wide with 51-52 inch tires.
Meet Walter the bus. What used to be an airport vehicle was turned into a giant Volkswagen Bus that can run as fast as 50 mph and has a viewing deck and a dance floor on the top. Did we mention that it has those fabulous lights, too?
Oh no, they’re not shooting another Transformers movie. This is real life, believe it or not. This beast is Germany’s $100 million-dollar Bagger 288. A 311-feet tall, 45,500-ton digging machine that takes five people to operate. FIVE PEOPLE! Let that sink in for a moment.
It’s big, loud, and can crush cars with ease. Yes, that’s the 14-ton, 9-meter long, 3-meter tall Monster Motorbike from hell. Fun fact! The owner used to make this bike jump over things, but found out that it was too risky (ya think?). So now, it’s being used to run over stuff like that poor little car.
What you’re looking at is the world’s largest dump truck. This baby can carry up to 450 tons of debris with a top speed of 40 miles per hour. Impressive, ain’t it? Won’t be called the Beast of the Belarus for nothing.
This list won’t be complete without a massive pickup truck, we know that much. So now we give you this humongous Dodge Power Wagon replica, which is eight times bigger than the original one. Need proof? Check out the photo above with the “little” trucks beneath it.
