World’s Most Expensive ATV


World's Most Expensive ATV
All-terrain vehicles, also known as three- or four-wheelers and quad bikes, may not be entirely street legal in most states but they still find use in agriculture, competitions and off-road excursions.
The original ATV was a six-wheeled, amphibious vehicle called the Jiger, produced in 1961. It wasn’t until 1970 that the first three-wheeler was made by Honda. The vehicle gained popularity when it was featured in the James Bond Film, Diamonds Are Forever, and a number of television shows. In 1982, the four-wheeler was introduced by Suzuki in the form of their QuadRunner recreational vehicle.
The most expensive ATV in the world is the GG Quadster customizable four-wheeler. The 167 horsepower vehicle is powered by a 1,157 cc BMW engine and is capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in only 3.5 seconds. The ATV’s chassis is constructed from billet aluminum, bringing its weight to a total of 825 lbs.
The most expensive ATV can be purchased for around $65,500, but options like additional storage, heated grips or a unique paint job will, of course, increase that price.
