The Tomcar & The Scorpion 4x4

This rugged little unit is called the "Tomcar".  Designed to be lightweight, flexible, simple and rugged, it is sold in Military/Commercial and Civilian models.  One aspect of the design that is interesting and somewhat unusual is the low center of gravity for stability.  Comes in 2 seater, 4 seater and pickup configuration.  The Tomcar is a nice alternative to a custom built 4x4 for pretty extreme off roading.

This is a relatively new diesel version of the supremely capable Scorpion 4x4.  The Scorpion is designed to navigate extreme terrain and it's heritage is from Rock crawling vehicles.  The articulation has to be seen to be believed.
