King of the Hammers is one of those events that is hard to comprehend without being there. It’s epic in size, scale, and performance and features some truly unique rides. Ultra 4 rigs are one of the most hardcore all-around off-road machines you’ll find as they have to not only crawl over some of the gnarliest rock trails in the west but also do 100 mph across high-speed sections of the desert. It’s kind of nuts how much they have to be able to do, and boy is it fun to watch.
One of the most unique purpose-built vehicles in the world, the Ultra4 car came to be with humble beginnings, and has evolved into a formidable off road machine in a few short years. The cars drive the research and development in the off road industry, providing the ultimate test bed for product design, and survivability. Tested, and proven, at the King of the Hammers race in California, what some consider to be the hardest single day off road race on the planet.
