Phoenix-based Local Motors has been busy building off-road rally cars designed by crowdsourcing. A few days ago, it showed off the results of the same process applied to the idea of a military hauler.
Once the build of the XC2V is completed within a few weeks, Local Motors and DARPA plan to use the car as a proof of concept and to test just how well it might withstand the rigors of hauling people and supplies quickly over hostile terrain. Given what Rally Fighters are capable of, the toughest obstacle might come from the companies who make today's military vehicles.
