Friends, in case you haven’t noticed we live in a bold new automotive world. If you require further evidence of this, peruse the slideshow above featuring 14 ultimate off-road vehicles that run the gamut from merely brilliant to certifiably over-the-top insane. Of particular interest here are two critical facts – every machine in this group is road-legal, and all are available for purchase to the general public. That is, provided you have money to spare, and we mean a lot. Most of these things will set you back six-figure sums

All but one of these 15 machines are turn-key and expensive, but number 15 is one you have to build on your own – either by your own hands or with the help of friends who prefer getting paid by the pint instead of by the hour. Jump into the slideshow to see what we're on about.
