As Bryanthavercamp’s has reached its final stages, his friend CAPNJ6mmy took to Reddit to. You can see the vehicle’s early progress in a YouTube video. Driving through back roads, dirt paths, and over water-filled gullies along the side of the road, the contraption captures the wonky charm of Bungie’s original that inspired it. Of course, the big challenge was taking a mutated looking dune buggy and transforming it into the early aughts sci-fi vehicle so many Halo fans have a special attachment to. The engine was replaced with a 855 Chevy 9 Bolt Gen 6 v8 with, per CAPNJ6mmy’s texts with his Halo buddy, “a stock cam from an 89 Chevy truck with L86 vortec heads with highflow aftermarket intake and 655cfm quickfuel carb” The bodywork meanwhile was entirely custom with the gauge clusters, accessories, and other parts being mostly 8D printed.
The vehicle will allegedly be street legal in the coming weeks. For everyone else that’s ever dreamed of going through the local drive-thru in futuristic war armament, well, maybe Halo 6 will be open world.
