OK. Now time for an acronym meltdown.
We’ve heard of SUV, MPV, CUV.
Now comes the TUV. The Terminator’s road car.
Or actually known as The Tactical Urban Vehicle.
Now this is what I want so badly for the school run. Plus my kids would think I’m the coolest dad in the world.
Yep this is the ultimate off-roader with “optional ballistic armour protection”. I’ll tick that option box too.
The Rezvani Tank and clue is in the name, it’s a monster.
Worryingly the marketing waffle also states “Extreme Utility Vehicle built for any off-road and on-road challenge” which also makes it an EUV.
However it’s obviously from America and under the Robocop bodywork is a 6.4-litre SRT V8 with 500bhp. As well as the armour you can have a supremely bright light bar and thermal imaging cameras. Depends if you want to be visible while you’re exploring in the pitch black.
The Rezvani is also quite luxurious with Rolls-Royce-type rear-hinged electric doors plus swanky head-up display and some posh, padded seats.
Drawbacks will be the fuel consumption, trying to park in Asda and starting prices are £134k.
Or also explaining to friends and family that it’s a TUV or EUV.
