AstroBionix Thor, for when one planet isn't enough

Austrian firm AstroBionix was still putting the decals on its Thor Ultimate Deployment Vehicle, a 600-hp, all-wheel-drive rig built by Italian coachbuilder Fornasari, when we snapped this pic from the Geneva show floor. Imagine a real-life Warthog from "Halo."


AstroBionix says it does...things with space technology; I'd be more specific but my brain started hurting around "turn-key solutions for a wide range of projects spanning from space-based biotech research..." The Thor UDV is certainly the first vehicle to sport Kelvar body panels and options for both the Jaws of Life, night vision, land mine detection and refrigerated transport of human organs.

Power comes from a 7.0-liter V8 tied to a six-speed transmission; the companies claim a top speed of 174 mph. No word on how many cupholders Master Chief gets.
