Roll up for the wild and the wacky

Herald Sun - Motoring - - What’s On -

THE truck touted as the loud­est in Bri­tain will be on show in Vic­to­ria for the first time this week­end at the Mel­bourne leg of the na­tional 2010 Auto Sa­lon show.

Mel­bourne Show­grounds will host the Vibe Dredd Truck (be­low), along with more than 200 other highly mod­i­fied ve­hi­cles from around Aus­tralia, as the city gears up for the coun­try’s largest au­to­mo­tive life­style show and con­test.

The black-and-yel­low Vibe Dredd Truck was orig­i­nally a prop car; a huge taxi in the movie Judge Dredd fea­tur­ing Sylvester Stallone. Only three of the trucks were built and the other two are owned by Stallone.

Vibe Au­dio spent more than $130,000 trans­form­ing the Dredd Truck into a sub­woofer speaker port.

The world’s low­est Land­Cruiser will also fea­ture at the show. Twisted Metal’s no­to­ri­ous LandBruiser (above) is lower than a reg­u­lar Land­Cruiser and has to be seen to be be­lieved.

Auto Sa­lon will run from 10am to 6pm on Satur­day and Sun­day. Fam­ily en­try $60, adults $29, chil­dren un­der-13 $15, un­der-5s free.
