Do you like Halo? No, I mean, do you really like Halo? We’re talking about a wanting-to-drive-around-the-streets-in-a-replica-of-a-vehicle-from-the-game level of liking Halo. Okay, to be honest, we’d all like a chance to tear ass through traffic driving a badass vehicle from a video game. But if you’re a hardcore Halo junkie, one with a sizeable excess of cash laying around with no other purpose, now is your chance to own your very own Warthog.
Halo enthusiast Peter Cooper took the chassis of a 1983 Land Rover Defender 110 and, with a little bit of ingenuity, transformed it into his very own Warthog. And now he has decided to sell it. He tweeted that he’s “looking for a good home for her. Reasonable offers considered.” What constitutes a “reasonable offer” remains to be seen, if you’ve got a pile of money, and nothing better to spend it on, you might want to look into this.
Over the course of the four Halo games, the Warthog has undergone some slight changes, but it still looks pretty much the same, and Cooper’s replica is remarkably spot on. In the games Warthogs serve as anti-infantry vehicles for the United Nations Space Command, and Cooper built his for a short fan film called Operation Chastity. For some reason I doubt that his adaptation will perform as well as the pixilated version (it is 29 years old after all), but I’m sure he’ll let you take it for a test drive (if it’s still street legal) before you commit to dropping a big chunk of change on it.
