Mmm, Anarticamobile

"Designed to fit into a small Twin Otter aircraft that BAS use for working in remote deep field locations, the two-person vehicle has a combination of tracks and wheels that allows it to operate anywhere on the continent over hard ground, snow or ice surfaces.

It also comes with an unmanned pathfinder which travels on a GPS controlled route ahead of the main unit. The pathfinder is secured by a 30m umbilical cord and uses ground-penetrating radar to assess risk."

Oh I have no excuse to actually own one of these, but I want one so. Reminds me of the newest Batmobile.
