    I didn’t know it before, but I think I need a Petrovich :D

    What country? That’s easy. It’s Jamaica! You can tell by all the snow and the Russian-style buildings.

    Love the rebuilt Volga. It’s too bad there aren’t companies that build modern gadgets that look old… that also work really well. There are some that build retro-style, but they’re mostly terrible quality.

      It’s a container for Putin’s ego.

      This looks very much like a container for a submarine nuclear reactor.

      Multi tires are used to lower the pressure made by car over a land. If it is a swamp – for example – then it is possible to cross it over. In case there were only four wheels – it will simple sink. Similarly – if you walk on thin ice, then it is safer to lay a ladder, and then walk on ladder, because it will spread your weight over larger area.

    The Petrovich is cool, but I would think that the 2L engine seems a bit small considering that it’s a rather large off-road vehicle. Using the Cummins Engine that the HMMV and the Tigr uses would seem to be a better choice at the expense of Fuel economy.

    Also, I’d like to see somebody pimp out a Chaika, or a ZiL.

    Uh, oh!! The splattered car!!! Watch out for psittacosis, Comrades!!!!

    great set of good looking vehicles, thanks

    Well, i didn’t figure out what town is it, but is sure looks familiar to some town in Romania like 25 years ago…

  8. R says:

    ECOTRANS company was founded in 2004. It specializes in mechanical engineering and metal working but its passion is off-road vehicles. So, meet ‘Petrovich’.

    Reminds me of Unimogs, though admitted this Russian one looks wicked.

  9. Rupert says:

    The engine is way too small for the vehicle, and it will also be unreliable since it’s Italian.
