(Update, the green one has been lost or broken. How do you lose or break a tank?) The Ferret is a serious 4 wheel drive machine that should make any owner proud and any Hummer owner jealous. It not only has a turret and grenade launchers, but it has a unique central differential driving all four wheels. With a major purchase like this, though, it’s always nice to have a choice. The green one on the left is listed on eBay for £8,500.00, the yellow one is also listed on eBay for £18,500. They’re located in England. The green one was stored for about 27 years and recently revived. It runs and drives and some of the lights work. There’s no info provided on the yellow one, but for an extra £10,000 it looks like you get a lot more toys as well as a spare tire. I assume the grenades and the .30in Browning light machine gun are more ornamental than mental.
The driver’s compartment of the green one on the left doesn’t look quite as nice as the yellow one on the right but they are both functional.
Here’s a peek of the 130 HP Rolls Royce engine in the green one. Things look a bit messy in there, but apparently everything is completely functional.
While not well suited for the daily commute, a Ferret would be great fun for a romp across uninhabited landscape. Military collectors take these quite seriously, I’m sure, but what great fun it would be to take off roads! I’m thinking these are great big boy toys that lots of us could have big fun with.
