Built on the chassis of a Hummer H1, this real-life "Halo" Warthog is almost 8 feet tall, more than 8 feet wide and more than 17 feet long.The body matches exactly the proportions of the Warthog in the game and rides on immense 49-inch tires. A brief test-drive put the driver of a UPS truck at eye level. The vehicle is essentially a pickup, with two conventional seats in the cabin and a truck bed. There are no doors, just a low sill. Mounted in the bed is a fake 50-caliber machine gun. Underneath the hand-assembled skin is the chassis, transmission and engine from a 1996 Hummer H1. It has a 6.5-liter diesel V-8 engine and a four-speed automatic transmission. It has four-wheel steering, which would have cost far too much to build from scratch. Second, the real version is 12 percent smaller than it would have been had Aria made it on a 1:1 scale. Ferrara's team spent six months creating a Warthog body identical to the video version, down to the smallest detail. These include fake rivets on the industrial-grade foam or plastic reinforced fiberglass body panels, hand-holds to get into the vehicle.And the gauges in the Warthog's interior with static readouts. Even the horn has been lifted from the game and attached to a speaker.

I've gotta say I've always wanted that horn sound from the Warthog to put in my Bronco.

well you would always weld on some industrial crane hooks either side of a front bumper mounted winch, or use some bull horns...or even a chieftain's helmet. Now those are much harder to get. (don't even try) ;)

how much is it $

Brutechieftan Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2013  Student General Artist
Alot. I'd ball park it around the price of a 'cheap' Ferrari. It'd be the price of a Hummer H1 rolling chassis plus the cost of the hand made carriage. So probably $230,000. They did you plastic for the interior so I might be way off on the price. It could be as cheap as $80,000 (CAD)

Well that's easy. Just convert a maglev (magnetic levatation) train carriage (the part u sit in) into a Halo Ghost ;) the hard part is the plasma cannons and fusion drive core...;P

6 months to build the custom carriage, it sits on a H1 hummer chassis.
