TOYOTA TACOMA POLAR EXPEDITION TRUCK

TOYOTA TACOMA POLAR EXPEDITION TRUCK

This is a one-off, purpose built vehicle designed to travel the severe winter weather of Antarctica and set a land speed record to the South Pole. In 2011, Jason De Carteret, a renowned adventurist, using “Polar” broke two Guinness records crossing the Antarctic ice cap from Patriot Hills to the South Pole and back: 39 hours and 54 minutes, at an average speed of 27.9mph! This project was underwritten by both Thomson Reuters and the Discovery Channel. The link below to the Discovery Channel will tell you the complete story:
