    Get a life.

  2. Pyromaniac says:

    Are they allowed to drive that..monster.. around all russian streets and roads? I know it fits perfectly for some of the Russian roads, but what about a 2 lane one?

  3. Henke says:

    Never before has something so utterly useless occupied so much road for so few.

  4. chaosgone says:

    Just what we need in the U.S. to go grocery shopping at Costco. ;)

    • Sam says:

      Actually, at the $80K starting price, it’s geared to those who tow enough to wear out normal pickup in a year or two.

      Yes, there are people who tow that much.

  5. BigDog says:

    Converted semi-tractor into a pickup. Its pretty funny, really.

  6. Boris Abramov says:

    Help!!!!! – russians are turning redneck….NO NO NO!!!!

  7. Tex says:

    This thing looks like it was made for the typical Russian mobster that always dreamed of being a truck driver.

    I don’t think they sell this thing in the US. I did see some huge, ugly Chevy concept pickup truck at the Texas State Fair last year though.

    • smokeydog says:

      They are built by International in Garland, Texas and can haul 20 tonnes.

    • da, ya amerikanyetz says:

      They definitely sell them in the US.

    • sensinyou says:

      yup,sold in usa,called the cxt,about 100 grand.its just a med duty extended cab with a f350 bed on it.usa is going to replace the hummer,the ih co. has a prototype truck up for government testing which is way cooler than this thing.

      • Texas1 says:

        The rumor is that GM is going to stop making the Hummer because sales are way off and it is no longer profitable to make.

        • sensinyou says:

          civilian hummer is in trouble for various reasons,the military h1 type is deemed out of date and too light to take needed armor. the military hummer was designed by chrysler in the late 70s,and has been in service for 25 years,one of the oldest vehicles we have in front line service

  8. smokeydog says:

    They are designed to haul heavy equipment, boats, etc. on a goose neck trailor for long distances.

  9. rawklobstar says:

    there is absolutely no reason for anyone to own one of these, ever.

    • BigDog says:

      Rawklobster, perhaps you should be the arbiter of what people can and cannot buy with their own money.

      • BigDog says:

        Gosh, Texas1. I didn’t know ‘this thing’ was built in Iran or Syria! Good thing you are here to keep all this stuff in perspective for us.

        • Texas1 says:

          I think they should governate this one with that french fry oil fuel.

        • Texas1 says:

          Sorry Dawg, I kind of see rawklobstar’s side on this issue. Besides, people who drive these big ass trucks take forever to park and get out of their parking places. Sometimes, you just want to smack them.

          • BigDog says:

            Inconvenience to your person is a rational reason to be irritated. Stretch limos are probably worse. I can’t think of any other reason to complain, tho.

  10. Boris says:

    These kinds of vehicles are very useful in Russia (for ordinary transport) considering the bad roads!

    For actually transporting loads, a KrAZ truck would be better.

    Ok, I had to research this thing. Here’s the description from the manufacturer’s website.

    For those who prefer not to make a subtle entrance.

    When people see you driving an International® MXT™, they don’t forget it. They look up from their tricked out SUVs, and realize they don’t have the coolest ride on the street anymore. They’re even more jealous when you press your foot down and let the force of 300 horsepower leave them in awe of what they just witnessed.

    And while you’re savoring all the attention, you’ll be relishing in the lush comfort of the spacious interior. Features like touch-screen CD/DVD radio, GPS navigation, ivory-faced sport gauges and leather seats make you question whether it looks better from the inside or from the street.

    Starting at $125,000 the MXT Limited will be available in the Summer of 2007

    • BigDog says:

      hahaha! Sweet.

    • sensinyou says:

      mxt is actually a different truck,its two feet shorter in height than the cxt,and is the military “M”XT version of that truck pictured,the”C”XT civilian. mxt is a vehicle ih would like to sell to the us armed forces,who are replacing the hummer. it has independent front suspension,and is purpse built truck,not that cheesy thing pictured here.

    Just right

    Hmm….are you sure it was lad’s magazine, not something else???

  15. Ivan Minic says:

    Now.. that is a big one

    чтоб вы в жизни русской понимали…

    Howdy you all, I am an american and about as redneck as it gets. We used to be proud of the distinction, it meant you worked for a living, and did not indicate your taste. My area of Colorado has some of these vehicles, and alot of just standard big ass american trucks as well. abot 30% I see in use as intended. We do have cattle ranchers that reeally need the equipment. Another 70% are want to be cowboys. They are usually the smallest guys in height and muscle. I suppose the truck becomes some measure of stature.

    I am a U.S. marine and redneck, but i only need a jeep and a sedan and get fairly decent gas mileage. I wish everyone would consider the gas before their ego. I agree with many of you that Russia does not need this and we should do with less in the USA as well. Tax a vehicle by it’s tonnage and that will keep them of the road.

  18. whatever says:

    Not based on a 20ton truck ,more like About 5 ton capacity. and not nearly 600hp. and they dropped them from production cause they didn’t sell.
