“The PRAETORIAN SCHOOL BUS by TORSUS can carry up to 35 children on any of the world’s toughest school run routes, whether on- or off-road. Special features include bespoke original seats styled around mathematics and science designs. The seats are covered with a polymer protective coating, made to rigorous TORSUS standards, equipped with a seat belt suitable for all ages while optional extras for the seats include a foldable armrest and hip support bar on the aisle side.”

Intended to carry up to 35 students to school over the world’s toughest roads; imagine the camper conversion you could build in this thing.

From the company’s CEO:

“The TORSUS PRAETORIAN is built for world’s toughest jobs and to transport personnel and equipment across inhospitable terrain in any conditions. The PRAETORIAN is based on an upgraded heavy-duty MAN chassis and is powered by MAN engines and drivetrain. The SCHOOL BUS edition of the vehicle features uprated off-road Michelin tyres and coating on body parts meaning that PRAETORIAN is engineered to take on any terrain, on any terrain, anywhere in the world.”

Powered by a 6.9-liter diesel engine, with four-wheel drive, front and rear locking differentials, and—wait for it—Michelin XZL tires, the Praetorian boasts some impressive specs. I can’t biggify this chart, but that’s a 900mm fording depth, a 33º side-slope capability, and a 65% grade capability.

Of course you don’t have to go with the Zonker yellow bus version; there’s also the more menacing-looking MP:
