Someone spent 5 years making this real Halo Warthog truck

We know that there is going to be a special Forza Horizon 4 side mission featuring the Halo Warthog, but Bryant Havercamp has created a real-life version of the classic Halo military vehicle for himself. You can see it in the video below, where he showcases his project and describes his five years of labor to get the Warthog up and running.

Havercamp is a phone technician from Michigan and he call himself a big Halo fan, saying he has been playing the games since 2003. He built the Warthog using traditional fabrication methods, plus the frame of the 1984 Chevy K10. The process of building the custom vehicle first started with the roll cage and then the frame, and even included hand-making custom tusks for the front.

This Warthog is fully street legal, with the tricky parts built using a 3D printer, and a model that was taken from the Halo Game. Even though Havercamp’s Warthog has a completely functional dashboard, the task of building it was not easy. Havercamp explained the materials cost $10,000-$11,000 USD, but he thinks he can get up to $100,000 if sold to the right Halo fan.

Under the hood, the Warthog is powered by a fully rebuilt 1984 Chevy 350, good enough to get the vehicle up to a top speed of 85 MPH. This is a pretty cool project, and it reminds us of that time in 2012 when Microsoft commissioned a company to build a Warthog replica (complete with a mounted gun) to promote Halo 4.
