Bentley is famous for building world-class luxury cars and offering a seemingly infinite number of customization options, but never anything that comes even remotely close to this.
The tuning specialists from the popular Russian YouTube channel AcademeG have taken a Bentley Continental GT coupe and removed the doors while replacing the wheels with tank-like tracks. They dubbed their creation “Ultratank.”
Actually, the modifications go well beyond what we can see. The frame was completely reworked and a solid axle was mounted in the rear to power the tracks via an automatic transmission equipped with a torque converter.
One cool detail is the steering. While the wheel comes straight from a production Continental GT, a unique mechanism was fitted to apply the brakes to the inside track when the car needs to turn. As power continues to flow to the outside track, the car is able to change directions.
The following videos show how the Bentley Ultratank came to be and how it handles on the trails. As you’ll see, there wasn’t enough tension on the tracks at one point to prevent them from falling off the rollers, but the team managed to put them back on and continue their run.
As far as off-road vehicles go, this one is pretty much in a class of its own.
