You might remember that back in early August, Xbox was providing a bunch of promotion for the movie "Free Guy", and even brought a "life-sized" replica of a Halo Infinite Warthog to the red carpet event in New York.
It turns out that Warthog was actually built by popular YouTube channel Hoonigan (in conjunction with Xbox), which has documented the early part of the 'making of' process in the video below, with more episodes to come.
It's a fascinating look at the initial stages of the building process, as well as a humorous glimpse at the process of driving the Warthog to the event. The video also reveals that it's a a "fully capable off-road race truck that can jump, crawl and do everything you expect from an Ultra4 racing vehicle", described as "one of our wildest builds to date".
"Car nerds and video game nerds unite! We teamed up with Microsoft and Halo to build a real deal Warthog(M12-FAV) from the all-new Halo Infinite but of course we added our own spice to it…We took a Ford V8 like the one in the Hoonicorn, added two turbos to it and made a little over 1,000hp!
But this isn’t a car show pony, it actually RIPS. With fully functional off-road racing suspension, active 4-wheel steering our Halo Warthog is a fully capable off-road race truck that can jump, crawl and do everything you expect from an Ultra4 racing vehicle that you’d find at King of the Hammers."
You can check out the first part of the behind the scenes footage below, and keep an eye out on the Hoonigan channel for more episodes. We're assuming we'll see the real-life Warthog pop up plenty more times in the future.
