We’d normally dismiss such an oddity but this is just too bonkers not to like

If you happen to follow the car world’s digital illustrators, you know it’s a wild, wild world out there on our screens. Guys like Khyzyl Saleem and Ash Thorp can turn any jalopy into a hot-as-chilli restomod, and the same can be said about Jon Sibal.

Specifically, Jon came up with a re-tweak of one of his original works - a widebody Toyota Tacoma design - where he basically added a third axle to the whole thing, which now sits on not four, but six ‘meaty wheels’ as the artist calls them.

Six wheels are better than four, duh!

We know, we shouldn’t make such a fuss about a digital render but these things require some much creativity and work to become what they are that we cannot not take a bow. So yeah, in all fairness, this thing is a little over the top. Not too much, though, because some pretty badass, out and out extreme vehicles - for the road or for the off-road - have worn the Toyota badge throughout history.

Two such monsters we can think of right off the top of our heads are Mike Skinner’s NASCAR Toyota Tundra - which ran the Goodwood Festival of Speed hillclimb course in 50.44 seconds and crossed the finish line at 132 mph and Rod Millen’s 800-horsepower Pikes Peak Toyota Tacoma that also put on a show in Goodwood.

Jon Sibal’s creation, however, looks more suited to a sort of track-only truck racing championship of sorts with a lot more focus on the extreme element than Stadium Super Trucks, for example.

Why’s that? Well, the low-slung stance of the digital concoction, as well as the rad front splitter, rear diffuser and wing, hint at something that needs to go fast in a straight line but also when the asphalt gets bendy.

We don’t know about you, but we’d love to watch a racing series based on similar high-power trucks.

Tudor’s first encounter with cars took place when he was only a child. Back then, his father brought home a Trabant 601 Kombi and a few years later, a Wartburg 353. At that time, he was too young to know how they worked and way too young to drive them, but he could see one thing – each of them had a different ethos and their own unique personality. As time went on, he started seeing that in other cars as well, and his love for the automobile was born.  Read More
