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. 
This was built for the Let's Break Some Records LUGNuts challenge. You can view more photos in Lino's photostream, and the source image here
