If you've been trolling around eBay lately, you may have been shocked to come across the beast that is the Toyota Tacoma Polar Expedition Truck. This one-off 2010 4-wheel drive vehicle is not your typical highway gas-guzzler; it was built specifically for travelling the perilous route to the South Pole and withstand the severe weather of Antarctica. You'll probably note that it is marked as "Used" as it was driven by Jason De Carteret to the pole and back in 40 hours. It is powered by a TRD supercharged 4.0-liter V6 engine that produces 341 horsepower and is supported with a custom-built suspension, a steel body, engine heater, interior (including four custom racing seats and roll cage), and 2 GPS devices to ensure no one gets lost either in the tundra or in the mean streets. It also comes with a solar panel and seven fuel tanks that will cost over $1,000 USD to fill .The vehicle is up for sale note directly through Ebay.
