Concept for Antarctica: James Moon's Ninety Degrees

This image was lost some time after publication, but you can still view it here.

Designer James Moon's concept snow tracker, called Ninety Degrees South, could be the ultimate niche vehicle. It's projected as an extreme SUV (the first letter standing for "scientist's") that can travel over Antarctica's unique terrain of rocks and snow. A novel interplay of tracks and wheels, driven by a high-efficiency diesel engine, makes the two-person NDS ideally suited for expeditions on that southmost of continents. Even cooler (heh heh) is its mechanical shotgun-rider, a pathfinder probe that travels up to 98 feet ahead, guided by GPS, that uses ground-penetrating radar to find dangerous crevasses that could swallow the craft whole.
