Why Eat Sand When You Can See The Best Mint 400 Moments Right Here?

The 2016 Mint 400 off-road racing spectacle just wrapped up outside Las Vegas. We had a front-row seat in our $240,000 Mercedes-Benz 4x4, now you can too with these kickass action clips (and a few bonus photos!)

The Fox Shocks clip basically just a barrage of awesome, and Mad Media’s gives you a better breakdown of the race itself and the strategies involved in getting on the podium.

At this point I’m completely convinced UTVs like the Polaris RZR are the future of off-road. They just provide so much capability out of the box, are easy to modify and a relative bargain when you’re measuring bucks-per-smiles against a trophy truck or traditional race buggy.

We took a fair few photos ourselves, check out the best right here:

Enjoy! And stay tuned for even more images of the supercalifragilistic Mercedes G500 4x4² eating the Nevada desert for dessert.

“At this point I’m completely convinced UTVs like the Polaris RZR are the future of off-road.”

maybe for people with $20k+ to blow on dedicated offroad rigs, plus another $45k+ on a tow vehicle, and $1k on a trailer...

i’d always rather have an off road vehicle that is street legal— for when i’ve got the other car(s) apart for one reason or another and need to run to the store for that bolt that just sheared, or just generally because i enjoy driving something different.

and imo, that comment really only furthers the damage of the perception of offroading— that the ONLY way to get into it is to spend wheelbarrows full of money on dedicated off road rigs that need to be trailered into and out of ohv parks...

it’s an easy pit to fall into, and i think more articles like david tracy’s $600 beater rig need to get more light to make it apparent that is not the case at all.
