With its six cylinder turbo diesel engine, the Marauder - which is described as the world’s most unstoppable vehicle - can hit speeds of up to 120km per hour on road, and is strong enough to survive a land mine explosion.
The military vehicle makes light work of rough terrain, despite weighing up to 18,000kg' when fully kitted-out with protective casing.
The Paramount Group, who make the vehicle, have received thousands of enquiries from members of the public eager to buy one of the Marauders.
But the company only sells them to governments.
Nico de Klerk from the Paramount Group said: "It is a clean sheet design, one of the world's most advanced and modern armoured vehicles, it has very high levels of protection as standard against land mines and ballistic attacks.
"Only sovereign governments can purchase the vehicles.
"Also only governments that are approved by the South African government and the UN.
"It is by far the world's most iconic armoured vehicle."
Footage shot at testing facilities in South Africa shows the Marauder smashing through walls and withstanding an explosion from below.
The Marauder is also filmed driving through water and tackling muddy hills.
It was originally developed for peacekeeping and reconnaissance missions, and holds a crew of two in the front with space for eight fully equipped troops in the back.
The tough and versatile Marauder has become one of the best-known armoured vehicles in the world since its launch in 2007.
It was filmed being put through its paces at the Gerotek testing facility outside Pretoria, and the Paramount Group's very own Battle Creek facility near Rustenburg.
