Drive Halo's Warthog

I'm not the one to post motor news. I was never taken with cars. To me they are just a way to get from A to B faster. I could care less for horse powers, turbos, and hood ornaments.

But this was too good to let it go. Chrysler just published its concept for a new vehicle called the Jeep Renegade 2008. It's supposed to combine an electric and diesel engines and achieve a maximum speed of 110 MPG. So far, I could care less, but then I saw the concept drawing:
And this threw me immediately into the world of Halo, the Xbox 360 game I'm playing right now. You see, the game's protagonist, the Master Chief, gets around the map on a vehicle dubbed "the Warthog" that looks like this:


Am I the only one seeing the similarities, or have the Chrysler designers came up with this design during an evening of hot, hard multiplayer action? smile

PS: as far as I know, Chrysler does not offer a Gatling gun as an option with the Renegade. But who knows? if enough people ask for it... Could be a great way to clear a traffic jam wink.

And go to jail... I think the Chrysler CEO plays halo to much with his designers...oh well.
