The Ford F-150 may be the most popular pickup truck in the country, but it's seriously lacking in a few key respects — with only four wheels, less than 1,000 horsepower, and no bulletproofing whatsoever, the F-150 does little to differentiate itself from most other pickups on the road today.

Those looking for more uniqueness and a little more of, well, everything in their next pickup purchase need look no further than the Hercules 6×6, a completely over-the-top, six-wheel-drive truck launched this week by boutique carmaker Rezvani.

Exactly how outlandish is the Rezvani Hercules 6×6? Well that all depends on how much a buyer is willing to shell out for options. The base truck retails for $225,000, but add-ons like a more powerful engine, better shock absorbers, and appearance upgrades can more than double that figure. 

The bulletproof Hercules 6×6 Military edition starts at $325,000 and boasts standard security features such as armoring, electrified door handles, and a night-vision system. A fully-loaded model will run you north of $700,000, according to Rezvani's online configurator.

Rezvani builds the Hercules 6×6 based on the Jeep Gladiator, which it tears down and rebuilds with a reinforced frame, a new drivetrain, and an extra axle.

Both the standard version and the armored Military edition have three engine options.

There's the standard V6, a 500-horsepower V8, and a 7.0-liter, supercharged V8 out of the Dodge Demon.

That one claims 1,300 horsepower and 989 lb-ft of torque. It costs well over $200,000.

Rezvani calls the Hercules "the god of all trucks" and says it's "an antidote to today's boring truck segment."

With a look inspired by military vehicles, the Hercules 6×6 looks like the pickup Batman would drive.

It rides on 37-inch tires, and buyers can choose from three different suspension setups.

Other upgrades include bigger brakes for $5,600, a sport exhaust for $1,750, and a built-in winch for $3,750.

Rezvani has already logged at least 18 reservations, a spokesperson told Business Insider, with most customers springing for the Hercules 6×6 Military and loads of options.

The Military edition comes outfitted with ballistic windows and armoring all around.

Rezvani wraps the radiator, battery, and fuel tank in kevlar, and protects the underside from explosives.

It comes with outlandish security features like a smoke screen and "blinding lights" for losing trackers.

It also sports run-flat tires, a thermal night-vision system, and electrified door handles that shock would-be intruders.

Because one can never be too prepared, the Military edition also comes with gas masks, a first-aid kit, and a hypothermia kit.

For even more security, buyers of either truck can add on exterior cameras that continuously record.

As one might expect from a vehicle that starts at over $200,000, the Hercules 6×6 has a pretty luxurious and highly customizable interior.

Customers can choose the colors of the leather seating, stitching, and gauge faces.

An interior lighting package, headrest embroidery, heated seats, and an upgraded audio system are all options as well.

The Hercules 6×6 is available to order now with a non-refundable $1,500 deposit. The build time is 12-16 weeks depending on options.
