The Most Rugged RV Ever Built

There are plenty of vehicles capable of making the journey across Antarctica, but not a lot in which you'd really want to spend that much time in the world's coldest environment. The Mercedes Zetros 6x6 Expedition Vehicle, however, will make you forget you're not inside a hotel, much less in a frozen wasteland.

For starters, it's called a 6x6 for a reason: the nearly 1,000 foot pounds of torque is divided evenly between all six wheels, making it very difficult for the Zetros to get stuck, even though it can weigh up to 27 tons. Mechanically, it's nearly flawless.

Inside, though, is where things start to get really insane. There's a fairly large safe hidden out of sight, and two televisions on the walls, including a 46-incher over by the dining room.

Oh yeah, and it's got its own freaking dining room.

Head over to the bedroom, and you'll barely notice the second, 40-inch TV, because that is a marble shower. Don't be afraid of the cold tile in the Antarctic, either, because all the tile is heated to protect your feet from anything unpleasant.

Once you're properly fed, warmed up, and bored with Antarctica's selection of TV stations, you can hop in back, where there's a freaking ATV stashed away, just for fun.
