Stop, it’s not the Oshkosh! Sure, it does come with the proper military gear and looks like something out of a war zone. But no, it’s not the replacement of the Humvee the US has recently closed a partnership with. We’re looking at an armored military vehicle that was used on the set of some movies.
Oshkosh will build around 55,000 vehicles for the US Army and the Marine Corps, but since the Humvee was made in more than a quarter of a million units, this is probably the first shipment out of many others. The announced partnership between the government and the military gear maker is worth $6.7 billion. Not only do these machines look mean, but they are also quite technologically advanced. Oh, they also are not available for civilian use.

The 2008 MRAP MAV Protector I, on the other hand, may come to your likes, considering it’s packing about the same amount of hardcore army gear, without being an actual war machine. Oh, and you can buy one too.

Protector may be the name of the model, but it also represents its mine-resistance capacity, not to mention its ability to resist all types of ambush situations. Underneath the heavy protection layer lays a 6.7-liter Cummins turbocharged diesel engine that smoothly runs via an Allison transmission. “Ice cold” A/C system for those who can’t bear the dessert’s hot sun, 24 Volt LED lights, air brake system and run-flat tires are also part of the bigger picture.

Did we mention the full armor package including undercarriage? Oh, yes, we did. Then, you’d also want to know about the new seats, new paint, fresh service and operational weapons turret. As if all this military gear wasn’t well enough to tackle any guerrilla-fighter wannabe, there’s also a celebrity tag to it.

According to the eBay ad, before the current ownership, the truck was originally purchased for the movie industry and has been seen in shows such as Iron Man 3, Lone Survivor, CSI TV Series and others. Now, all you need to do is find a way to get $179,850 (EUR159,071).
