Dodge Power Wagon
Dodge Power Wagon
This pickup, modified from the 1950's model, was the biggest pickup truck ever made. It holds four air conditioned bedrooms, a living room and a bathroom, with a motorized tailgate that drops down to become a terrace. This monstrosity was commissioned by billionaire Seikh Hamad in the UAE.
Antonov an-225

This hulking strategic cargo plane was designed by the Soviets in the 1980s. It has 32 wheels in its landing gear. It has a wingspan of 290 ft, meaning you could just barely fit it on a football field. It has flown multiple times as well, making it more useful than planes almost it's size.

See that car down at the base of this thing? Can you spot the tiny person nearby? Yeah. This thing is the biggest, literally. It was built to mine, and it can mine an area the size of a soccer field down to 90 meters per day. It requires over 16.5 megawatts of power just to operate it. That could power over 2500 houses per day.

Here's another sample for you to see... This thing is basically a factory on wheels.
BelAZ 75710

This larger than life dump truck is the biggest in the world. It has two engines pumping out a total of 4600 horsepower. It may not be efficient, but it works.
Prelude FLNG

This ship is so large, you can see it's basically as big as the small mountain in the background there. It's 1600 feet long, and weighs over 600,000 TONNES when operational. Keeping that much weight afloat is some sort of miracle. (It's function is to take natural gas and turn it into liquid out at sea instead of on land.)

This thing was an experimental creation back in the 50's to try to reduce dependency on railroads to ship things, especially to more back-country places where building rail might not be preferred. The longest reached 600ft.

As you can see here, it can pretty much go anywhere, and as such it is considered an offroad vehicle, which makes it the largest offroad vehicle too!
World's Longest Limo
World's Longest Limo
This world record long, 100ft limousine created by Jay Ohrburg in Burbank, California, has 26 wheels and requires two trained drivers to actually maneuver it around. Inside it has a heated Jacuzzi, a swimming pool, a king-sized bed and a sun deck. It’s even got a helipad on the back, as you can see the helicopter landing. Why you would need to land a helicopter on a limo though, nobody knows.

It's so long we had to give you a picture of both ends. This is the front, and you can see the limo here in it's natural habitat, trying to get enough gas to power itself, but struggling to actually fit in the gas station.
Nasa Crawler Transporter
Nasa Crawler Transporter
A big, flat, hulking mass, this thing was designed to transport the space shuttles from where they were built over to where they would be launched. What's most impressive though is that this thing is laser-guided and laser-leveled to keep the platform upright and precisely plant the shuttle where it needs to be at the destination.
Schwerer Gustav
Schwerer Gustav
This bad boy can fire 7 ton shells almost 30 miles away. It is the king of siege weapons, used in the second world war to take down one of the strongest French fortifications. The shells are almost as big as a tank!

You can see the size of it better here. It's a railway gun (meaning it needs to be on a railroad to move at all) so the usefulness is limited for combat, but it certainly makes for good morale to have a gigantic gun on your side.
MIL V-12

The king of helicopters, this prototype was built to carry extremely heavy payloads. It currently holds the record for taking payloads over 30,000lbs higher than any other helicopter.
SPMT
SPMT
"Self-Propelled Modular Transporter." Each individual wheel is it's own unit, but when you slap a bunch of them together.... they can carry the heaviest objects in the world, and can be longer than any other vehicle in the world.
Schuerle SPMT

You can see the sets of tiny wheels at the bottom of the picture, but together they are managing to carry this whole oil rig. Impressive.
Antonov an-225 (for scale)
Antonov an-225 (for scale)
You can see, compared to the other airplanes nearby.... just the WING of the 225 is about as big as a normal commercial airliner. This thing is huge.
