Whenever we watch a video featuring something unbelievably crazy, we immediately presume that those mad Russians have had something to do with it. And, wouldn’t you know it, they’ve only gone and done it again; serving up another eye-popping visual feast that’s properly-properly mental. Not for the first time this century, Russia has made us drop our breakfast on the floor with its far out vibes. Oh Russia. You are soooo Russian.
The latest Russian video to get our knickers in a twist, shows an amphibious mini-monster truck dubbed the Sherp ATV. Cooked up by a mechanic in Saint Petersburg called Alexei Garagashyan, the Sherp ATV has four enormous low-pressure tyres allowing it to go, if this footage is anything to go by, wherever the heck it wants.
The nutty vehicle, capable of travelling on land and through water, measures 11 feet in length. It’s massive ground-clearance makes it capable of comfortably clearing 70cm obstacles without breaking a sweat, and the Kingston valves means water can be efficiently drained from the body. It might look like a children’s toy but the Sherp ATV might just be the ultimate adventure-mobile. And, what’s more, it only costs $119,000.
