    • Who would have need for shielded or double-shielded off-road vehicle? Army, bodyguards of all sorts, banks… In addition, there are versions without any shield (those are similar to hummer), with extremely strong fire protection, strong heat insulation (for arctic areas / for deserts) etc.

    • They are made from your choice of a Land Rover, Mercedes G-Klass, or a Chevrolet Suburban/Tahoe.

  1. It has level 3 glass. I imagine its targested at rich people afraid of kidnappers.

    Also the dashboard is out of a chevy pickup/suv, is that what its based on?

    • no its not based on gmc, they simply used some parts such as the spedometer, and engine parts, to lower the cost of maintance and repair, also for people who live in usa, so they wont have to wait a month to get new parts shipped from Russia, plus lowers the cost of making such vehicle.

  2. Those images don’t do justice to that car – they don’t show the hidden rocket system on the sides. Also they don’t show the flip control system that comes up when the driver is James Bond.

    That car HAS to have a laser SOMEWHERE.

    • One of versions uses GM engine and transmission, maybe some other components as well. That version is designed is to simplify the service of mixed group of T98 and hummers.

  5. Yup, GM on the inside, the instrumentation is the same as a Chevy Trailblazer/Suburban as is the wiper, headlight, and window motor controls.

    Lasers are optional but are illegal in California just like anything else you’d really want on a vehicle.

  7. Actually, everything that looks American is just popular in Russia. You get status-points if the car measures speed in MPH.

    Russians still even use more often dollars than euros, despite the abhorrent exchange rate of dollars.

  11. You (and the rest which say the same thing) seem to have some sort of blindness. Under the MPH there’s the KPH odometer with smaller chars.

  14. Dudster,

    Like Jaguars? Well, even if you don’t, prior to being bought by Ford, they used a modified GM Turbo 400 trans made here in the USA.

    SO, before you go bashing on our Russian friends, take a look at the Automotive Industry (or military for that matter). Using existing parts rather than “reinventing the wheel” is a sound concept. It is often referred to as COTS or Commercial Off The Shelf. In addition to building cars, the car and truck companies sell and buy sub assemblies from other manufacturers. Dana, Rockwell, and American Axle would really be hurting (even worse than now) were this not true. also companies like Delphi and Visteon (even though they went broke) were examples of this.

    So, consider it a compliment that the Russian builders are using “Decadent American Products” as part of their vehicles. See, we are not so different after all. If I were them, I would have used Ford parts especially considering they are the ONLY surviving non government owned car company in America, and likely will be the ONLY source of quality SUV and Heavy truck parts in America.

    “Golf Carts”, “People Wagons”, “Volks Mobiles”, no matter what the Government calls them either pedal powered or battery operated really don’t work for off road.
