Der Zeisel: The Ultimate Off-Road Wheelchair
November 11th, 2013
Have you ever wanted to feel like Emperor Palpatine, or Davros, the creator of the Daleks? Well, now you can get closer to that sensation, thanks to this off-road machine. It looks like the ultimate wheelchair, putting all other wheelchairs to shame.
Der Zeisel, which means “the seat” in German, looks like a combination of a tank and a mobility scooter. However, it’s able to handle snow, grass, mud, and sand. A racing seat was bolted onto a tube steel frame and its two off-road tracks are powered by electric disk motors, which produce 21 hp and 30 lb-ft of torque. The included battery pack will operate the seat for up to five hours, driving at a maximum speed of 22 mph.
Der Zeisel is controlled by a one-handed joystick, and the vehicle is fitted with wooden armrests, metal mudguards, and comes in a variety of awesome paint jobs. You’ll have to shell out about $30,000(USD) to get yours.
