Gregg Higgs is owner of Fab Fours, a car accessory manufacturer that has become known as the company behind some truly inventive custom car designs. Gregg and his team have now transformed a 2015 Chevy Colorado truck into a 4x4 beast named Kymera, that might just be the wackiest design from the team yet. Gregg told Barcroft Cars: “The whole point of Kymera is just to be over-the-top absurd. There's mild, wild, and then Kymera. It's just out of control.” The customized truck is powered by a 650 horsepower 5.9 litre Cummins Diesel engine. Front and rear steering and huge Fox shocks mean the Kymera is capable of traversing the most unpredictable terrain. From rock-crawling to desert-bashing, the impressive 9,000-pound machine can take on any challenge. The truck also features a 153-inch wheelbase, stands at around six and a half feet high, and has a top speed of 40 to 50mph. Gregg said: “Being in it, you can't see a whole lot. You can't hear anything. And you're just really holding on and pounding away and trying not to get beat up by the cage.”
