How to prepare a Toyota Hilux for the Antarctic

Posted by: on April 4th, 2012 Comments Off

Longest Antarctic expedition ever

In last week’s post, I promised that we would bring you a video highlighting the Hilux’s epic journey in the Antarctic. The video is a bit more than that though. In 2007, the Hilux became the first car to reach the Magnetic North Pole. Since then, it has conquered Icelandic volcanoes and an earlier Antarctic expedition, all to aid scientific research. Check it out after the break.

You’ll also find a diagram (thanks to Arctic Trucks) on how the Toyota Hilux vehicles were prepared to tackle the extremes of the South Pole.
