Why are there always crazy cars in Russia?
If you live the in Northeastern region of the US, chances are you may have trouble getting to work this week. After being hit with the largest snow storm of the year (Jonas), the roads are pretty dangerous to drive on without some kind of off-road vehicle. Sure you could go out and buy the new Ford F-150 Raptor, but not everyone has that kind of money to spend on a winter beater car. For those on a budget, Russia has you covered. Often known for their "cheap ingenuity," Russians have created some of the weirdest and most durable cars in history.
Russian carmaker Lada is not known for making luxurious cars that drive well, but its freezing cold climate means that they were built to be tough. Now Russian YouTube channel RT has shown us what Russian ingenuity is all about by turning an old Lada into a tank. Yep, you read that right, a tank!
Who needs a new Raptor, when for a fraction of the price you can have a freaking tank?! Russia's craziness never ceases to amaze us, and this Lada is no exception.
