Meet the awesome amphibious Russian offroad vehicle Aton-Impulse Viking-2992, this multipurpose vehicle can handle any terrain and there is just no stopping it!
The VIKING is the only amphibious off-road vehicle in the world to have passed through certification to meet UN/ECE regulations for unrestricted ON-ROAD USE.
VIKING’s world-leading amphibious capabilities are based around its purpose-designed flotation construction, centrally mounted engine and powerful water-jet propulsion that enable it to travel on open water at speeds of up to 15 km/h.
Off-road, VIKING is overwhelmingly superior to comparable amphibians, with cross-country ability akin to tracked vehicles. High maneuverability, turn-over resistance and endurance provide safety and comfort in remote or hazardous areas.
With a curb weight of only 1.46 tonnes, riding on giant 1300x600x533 tires, VIKING’s exceptionally low ground pressure enables to “float” on soft snow surfaces and avoids damage to sensitive environments.
VIKING has independent pneumatic front and rear wheel suspension with adjustable clearance and a tire air-pressure adjustment system operable from the cab while driving the vehicle.
This amphibious 4×4 can reach a top speed of 50mph (80km/h) on-road and has a fuel consumption of 16.8 mpg and about 11.8mpg off-road. the speed is limited to 50mph due to the tires not being able to withstand higher speeds but Aton Impulse are planning on releasing custom tires which will allow the Viking to reach an increased speed of 62mph.
Just one of these giant tires will set you back US$700 and Aton are working on bullet proof tires for future models.
