It was also modified to run on jet fuel, the only available fuel on the continent.

The trip lasted about a month.

The team traversed nearly 4,000 miles over the course of that month.

The average speed was about 17 mph, because it wasn't a sprint, but a marathon.

Contributing to the effort was Patrick Bergel, great-grandson of Sir Ernest Shackleton.

100 years ago, Sir Ernest Shackleton was a trans-Antarctic pioneer, and this drive was put together to celebrate the event's centennial.

Sadly, this setup will not be offered to buyers in wintry states.

Good luck trying to source jet fuel, too.
