The Marauder: Top Gear drives heavy, armored vehicle through inner city.

In June 2011, the civilian version of the Marauder was featured in British motoring program Top Gear,[9] with Richard Hammond comparing it to the discontinued Hummer. Among the activities tested were ordering fast-food from a drive-through restaurant, driving off-road and over cars, and—specifically in comparison with the Hummer H3—being blasted by seven pounds of plastic explosive.[10] Unlike the (civilian spec) Hummer, which was completely destroyed by the explosion, the Marauder was still operational and sustained only minor damage for the most part, although it did drive off with a blown tire.
