Have you ever dreamed of a vehicle that you can use anywhere at any time on any road? Now you can buy it. The only problem is that you will probably have to go to Russia!

Automotive Russian engineering firm SHERP has produced a wonderful and crazy vehicle.

The SHERP ATV is an off-road vehicle which drives like a tank even though it doesn’t look like one.

It comes in two models:

  1. The standard model comes with removable soft-top over the bed
  2. The Kung model comes with a hard-top in a range of color

They both use a 44.3-horsepower four-cylinder diesel engine and a five-speed manual transmission with a maximum speed of 45 km/h on land and 6 km/h in the water.

It costs around 65-70 K US dollars.

The most important feature of SHERP ATV are its tires. They give him a toy-like look but are actually very potent, massive and strong tires. They are essentially tubles and ultralow-pressure buoys. The tire ridges aloud the vehicle to pull itsel through the water and even up over broken ice! It can also climb 27.5 tall obstacles.

The whole truck itself weights 1,300 kg.

Having military appearance it is easy to assume it could be used in military purposes. Although it is light and not armored it could still be used to transport supplies through very unusual conditions.
