Samurai mountain climber
At first glance, this vehicle by Lino Martens looks like any other chunky, jacked-up off-road vehicle. But the model was built to commemorate a very special feat: the achievement of the highest peak ever climbed by a car. In 2007, Gonzalo Bravo and Eduardo Canales reached a height of 21,942 feet on the Ojos del Salada volcano with their heavily modified 1986 Suzuki Samurai.
