|Check out this fantastic story about a group of Germans who are trying to set the world altitude record for a vehicle.|
Matthias Jeschke from Germany will try to break the existing high altitude world record for cars, which has been set by himself in 2005. Once again he will tackle the Ojos del Salado, the highest volcano of the earth, which is situated in the Chilean Andes.
The current record mark is 6.358 m, that is about 20.860 ft above sea level.
The record car is the new Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon, which will be launched in the European market after this event. Other partners of this project are Warn (winches), Goodyear (Wrangler MT/R tires) and Argo ATV (amphibian and all terrain vehicles)
I´m very pleased to announce this project and to keep you updated on any news concerning this record attempt. I will receive brand new information, directly out of the Atacama dessert, one of the most arid regions of the world. So be part of this adventure and do not miss any news from Matthias Jeschke and his team!
