Dax Shepard is making a movie-remake of the buddy cop TV show CHiPs, and apparently running around filming in the gnarliest camera-carrying car I’ve ever seen.

What one might describe as the offspring of an insect and a dune buggy actually looks like a Baja prerunner; a rear-engined long-travel desert monster built for slamming through an off-road race course.

Or, I guess, chasing Hollywood guys around with an enormous camera on an even bigger stabilizer.

We’ve seen plenty of kickass camera-carrying vehicles on sets. Usually Ford Raptors, Mercedes ML AMGs or Porsche Cayenne Turbos. But this is the first buggy I’ve seen on movie duty. Maybe they’ll use something like this to shoot the Dust To Glory sequel!

Anyway after scrolling through Shepard’s twitter feed I’m suddenly excited for this CHiPs movie.
