43 SUV: Russian Way

SUV: Russian Way

Posted on February 18, 2008 by


Russian military vehicle  1

We had once a story about a Russian guy who has turned the military vehicle into a passenger car. This one is another of that kind, but way bigger, though lacks in the interior beauty. Still they have there now:
1. The mechanical gear stick was replaced with electronic joystick which is connected to electro driven gear box. Now they can switch the gears as easy as on a video game, before one had to have a huge muscle power to switch the gear on that Russian tough thing
2. Disassembled old army seats and put new ones, from the Chrysler minivan.
3. Improved the noise insulation.
4. Changed all the windows to the new ones, more thick, more nice.
5. Installed a rear-view camera and the monitor.
6. Put in a multimedia station, with hi-fi audio, video and wireless headphones for passengers.

Now they can take a ride more safely on Russian roads, and would find their way at any condition, that's for sure, even on Russian federal highway "Lena".

  2. Bishop Brennan says:

    ‘Red Ken’ Livingstone would love that thing going through London city centre!

  3. talking beaver says:

    I am afraid to ask how much would it cost to drive it around in terms of fuel consumption.

    A lot of space inside though.

    • KanuTaH says:

      Hey talking beaver, I noticed nothing racist come out of your mouth so far, congratulations! I have one small advice, if you want to be racist you always have this problem of stereotypes and bad people in any country so it doesn;t usually work out as you say it, but you can… turn this racism in to political criticizm…which is what shapes the world as it is and there you will hit right spot to complain about a certain nation’s actions or influences.. Have a safe day.

      • talking beaver says:

        Hello good Sir.

        I am not and never have been a racist. And I have no intention to become one.

        If you consider racism to be anything that is not Politically Correct and may offend someone – well, what can I say. You must be living in the wonderful land of fairies and unicorns. My apologies for stress this might have caused.

        Have not noticed you being critical of hatred mongering rabid loonies of Justion/Boris Abramov type though. The reason must be that they are very careful to stay Politically Correct even when they are talking extremely offensive nonsense.

        Have a nice day.

        • KanuTaH says:

          Then what do you call this contrast that you create between Russians and everyone else? Emotionally you seem to be offended when someone says anything good about Russians and always defend the others. And don’t forget that in older times Russia had to defend itself from all sorts of invasions too.

        • KanuTaH says:

          Yeas, and they are also very careful not to get caught for stealing billions from ordinary Russian pensioners in 1990s.

      • funny videos says:

        i am surprised he didnt say that it was latvians / estonians who made this “SUV” and that it was russians fault :)

  4. Too muchvodka says:

    I wonder what happens when this car finds itself in a traffic accident with a Trabant…

  5. John from Kansas says:

    Nice pick-up.

  6. Eris says:

    Try to guess again :)

  7. Eris says:

    And your point is? Vehicles like that are not common and their quantities are low.

  8. base says:

    nice, i wonder what happens if it crashes into a normal car. that person will not have a good day.

  9. Alex says:

    That is easy to imagine – this thing is like a light tank. Tanks dont crash into “normal” cars, they ride thru them…

  10. Miss India says:

    Russians are so poor i feel sorry for them :(

    • Indian by Nature says:

      So is India. whose 70% of military hardware comes from so called your poor Russia.

      • KolyaZZ says:

        Yeh…cause the Indians are too dumb to make their own hardware..

        • Teflon says:

          Yeah, Indians are too dumb to make weapons, they are too busy becoming doctors. Back before the modernized world, they fought from the backs of elephants, those were the best SUV’s of their day.

    • Eris says:

      Believe me, Russians do not need your «sorries» or anything else. They don’t even know you exist. So, better take care of urself, miss. ;)

    • KolyaZZ says:

      Indians are poorer than Russians. Check out GDP per capita and Russia’s GDP is five times that of poor old India. Russians can still get good jobs in Russia not like you starving Indians who need to emigrate and clean up the trash of white people. You Indians can barely grow enough food for your ever increasing population of oxygen thieves.

    • Moras says:

      Oh, Miss India this isn’t the only comment of yours about the Russians. Good job of putting ALL those millions into one group. Cheer.

    • browntown says:

      hey Miss India, please change your name, you’re insulting people like me (another Indian). Russians are kick ass! Only one thing I don’t like about them is that they would kick our ass if we ever moved there, the whole racist thing? Then again, if I were them, I think I’d have similar feelings.

      Apart from that, I love my russian girlfriend ( I live in Canada, she’s hot and no nonsense, all you indian chicks are drama and smell funny ). Shameful to know you and I have something in common. Yuck.

    • Alpha engineer says:

      Russians are good only at violence and vodka.

  11. Th blue Max says:

    1 inch isn’t approximately 2.54e-2 meters, it is EXACTLY 2.54e-2 meters (or rather 25.4 mm) because the imperial units have been redefined using the metric system. In the good old days Americans had several inches, just as there still are several ounces, depending on what you measure.

  12. Bill says:

    Cool! Better than a whimpy Hummer H-1!

  13. oli g says:

    dude this is an awesome website. i really want one-they should mass produce ‘em

  14. KolyaZZ says:

    To brain dead “Miss India”…your poor India has over 300 million people who survive on less than a $1 a day. 40% of your population is illiterate and 100% brain dead. India will never develop due to its ever increasing population which will result in famine soon.

    • AJ says:

      If I hadn’t seen Miss India posting in half a dozen other threads, I’d ask what all the negativity is about. But cripes – what is that person’s friggin’ problem? I’m guessing it’s just a chronic troll.

  15. gem says:

    no it’s not, cynical ignorant, cause EVERYWHERE besides US fuel consumption is measured in liters per 100 kilometers :p

  16. brbrbr says:

    but he right !!
    IDia is mos t EVILEST country in the world, beating in many aspects both N Korea, Cambodja, Solmalia, Iraq and some other countries.
    and poses [more]real threat to “Freedom World”, than China(and enumerated above), for example.

  17. Xpltivdletd says:

    Actually, “racist” in English has lost its original meaning. Now it only means “I-have-no-argument-but-I-still-must-win.” Since everybody’s rants appear in black characters on a white screen, “racist” takes on a particularly absurd smell in exchanges like this. Most people who can find their way here know you can “be” anyone & post a rant.

    But I’m holding my nose and hanging in there to applaud the VEHICLE in the pictures. NICE WORK. Guess the truck-bed isn’t ready to show off yet, but that’s cool. Somebody has put a lot of work into this beast and it shows.

    Pictures of roads in the former-Soviet-Union may be viewed in a lot of places on the Net, besides EnglishRussia. Some of these roads are paved. A car with little toy-size wheels and a scooter engine might go far, on a liter of fuel. But when you have a mud-road, YOU DON’T HALF-STEP IT. To get ANY Klicks-per-liter, you must remain able to move. That vehicle would still get *some* Klicks-per-liter, or *some* miles-per-gallon, on roads where nothing less is still getting inches-per-gallon.

    You in former Soviet Republics–LISTEN. Don’t allow your elected legislators to create non-elected bodies with power to inflict laws on you. It is the nature of legislators to contrive such things. You must stay on the case to prevent it or it will happen. That’s where we screwed-up in the U.S.A. We trusted the buggers we elected to do OUR bidding. They decided getting-elected made them our parents, and created bureaucracies to make all those laws they felt “must” be made because “Government-Knows-Best,” and they could boast of clean hands. Too many of us fell for that. I hope you can learn from our mistakes. Best regards–and NICE TRUCK.
