As befits the in-game version, the IRL Warthog features four-wheel steering and 1,060 horsepower. The vehicle was built for durability, making it suitable for off-road adventures — albeit probably less taxing ones than you’ll find in the game. It’s an impressive engineering feat regardless. Writing at Engadget, Mariella Moon has more details on how the Warthog came to be. Rally driver Ken Block and his company Hoonigan were involved in creating it, and — according to a recent post on YouTube — they worked with Microsoft and Halo on the project. (As Moon notes, Halo Infinite is due out this fall.) If this doesn’t sound synergistic enough for you, the place where it made its debut — the premiere of the gaming-themed movie Free Guy — likely will.
