Default 800 BHP Trophy Truck tears through Mexico - Baja 1000

This is one extreme offroad-onroad spectacle of a kind I had never seen before. It is nerve breaking.

One hell of a drive !!!. The " Ain't care " written at the bottom of the truck speaks all .
For sure to do anything of of this sort needs tons of expertise and courage.

Thanks for sharing.

Cheers,
pdma.

This is the off road equivalent of Ken Blocks Gymkhana.
It's has almost similar camera shots and angles.

Insane! I love trophy trucks and would dream to have one Hoonigan in my garage!

For folks who dont know do check out Dan Bilzerian. He is the bearded guy in the video and is notorious. His FB page is a delight to follow.

What's interesting about these trophy trucks is that they don't have windshields! You don't notice it until you're watching footage and you see something shoot into the cabin. (Eg. water in this case in the ocean shot).

Here's the original Recoil video :

I'd still say the original Recoil video was better in terms of a sense of occasion, and some fun moments (like when he sprays the car shoot crew with dust). And the driver in both videos is BJ Baldwin - 4 times Baja champion.
