In Mexico it costs the equivalent of $100,000 or more.
That just seems like a lot of money for a death trap, especially on the roads we have here in Mexico. They are horrible.
If the British Top Gear guys want to look for some of the worst roads in the world, like they did looking for the best, they can come here, but of course they are scared to come here and not because of the cartel violence.
The reason they were not continued as a truck motor is because in trucks they got extremely bad gas mileage. I was thinking of buying a used older one a couple years back only as a boat towing vehicle, until I looked up the gas mileage it'd get. With a good tailwind and being very gentle on the gas I'd have been lucky to get 6 mpgs while towing.
