Think of the Avtoros Shaman 8x8 as a tank, armored SUV and ATV all combined into one. Weighing a massive 2.5-tons and measuring 6 meters in length, 3 meters high, and 2.5 meters wide, this beast can tackle any terrain. It's powered by an Iveco F1C 3.0L turbo diesel engine that generates 146-horsepower, mated to 6-speed manual gearbox.

The Shaman has a 1.5-ton cargo capacity, and is capable of scaling 45-degree inclines. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.
