We’re not sure if this is an ATV, or just a really small tank. Produced in St. Petersburg, Russia, the Sherp ATV is touted as one of the most durable and versatile ATVs on the market. It weighs just under 3,000 pounds and comes equipped with a 44.3 horsepower Kubota V1505 diesel engine, giving it a modest 28 mph on land. What is truly impressive about the Sherp is that it is aquatic as well, thanks to its giant, self-inflating tires. That makes getting across a lake with open ice a breeze, although it still looks pretty scary. Don’t worry too much about the vehicle sinking either—a built-in device rapidly drains water from the craft if it becomes overburdened.

If that wasn’t enough, it even comes with a protective polymer shell. Of course, it does have a pretty hefty price tag. The base price of the Sherp ATV starts at $65,000 while an upgraded version, decked out with a larger cabin and hard top, is marked at $70,000.

Is that too much to pay to one-up just about everyone you know? What are your thoughts on this beast of an ATV?

  1. The Sherp A TV looks like the ultimate ice fishing rig ,snow buggy , winter toy ever seen in a single package ! The soft top version could be an instant, mobile duck blind . It kind of reminds me of the ” rollagon ” vehicle the military tested in the 1950’s based on very low pressure ,high flotation ,bladder-like tires .
