Apocalypse Manufacturing, the company known for constructing innovative six-wheel-drive trucks to combat all on/off-road scenarios, have debuted their “Dark Horse,” the world’s first and only Ford Bronco 6×6. This masterfully created 400 horsepower, six-wheel-drive super truck is build number 1 and set to run at premier auto-auctioneer Barrett-Jackson’s Palm Beach extravaganza, on Saturday, April 9th in a prime-time bidding slot.
The Dark Horse starts life as a four-door, four-wheel 4×4 Ford Bronco, that comes with a factory turbocharged V-6 engine. To enhance the truck’s look and function, Apocalypse Manufacturing tunes that motor to produce a trampling 400 horsepower, through the use of software tuning, larger injectors and a full exhaust upgrade, thus giving it a distinctive snarl.
What begins as an SUV that measures 189” in length will end up a pickup truck that measures 225” bumper to bumper. As the standard Ford Bronco enters the warehouse, its back is immediately cut off before its body is extended through the use of steel and fiberglass to create a five-foot-long, fully functional, bed.
The Bronco’s convertible roof is discarded in favor of a custom-made elongated fiberglass, hardtop, slant back, that can be easily removed and added back as much the owner desires.The Dark Horse and other Apocalypse Manufacturing 6×6 models, like the Doomsday, HellFire and Sinister 6, have some similarities in their rear-end drivetrain and some glaring differences when it comes to each truck’s front end./ DPCcars
