The EV3-F4 is the third iteration of what is perhaps the most badass vehicle ever made: The Ripsaw. Built by extreme vehicle fabricator Howe and Howe Technologies, the Ripsaw is a highly maneuverable “luxury” tank that can seat up to 4 adults. It’s a perfect example of what the Batmobile will likely eventually morph into. Every version since the Burton films has become increasingly bigger, more armored and military-esque. We see this in the Dark Knight trilogy tumbler, which was an armored prototype for the government, to the Batmobile shown in Batman vs Superman, where Batman literally drove through buildings. A full-on treaded tank like the Ripsaw is the clear next evolution.
Built with an available 1500hp engine and 112″ of track on the ground, the EV3-F4 is capable of carrying a party of 4 through just about any terrain. Need to get across that stream? You’re there. Want to see what’s at the top of that near-vertical summit. Go right on up. Need to catch the baddie that’s hiding in the old steel mill? Head on in – walls are only mental concepts for Ripsaw owners.
While things might be utter chaos outside your personal tank, you and your passengers will be sitting pretty in the EV3-F4’s fully isolated air suspended cockpit. There’s heating and air-conditioning, GPS and even paddle-shifters to help you slam through the gears F1 style.
Considering the cost of small batch, American made supercars that can’t tow anywhere near 15,000lbs, the Ripsaw EV3-F4 is a relative bargain at $400,000.
