Coming to a riding area near you.

We’ve seen amphibious vehicles before, but nothing quite like this. Most vehicles that are capable of driving on both land and water tend to lean a bit more boat-like in their appearance and less like a land dwelling beast. The Russian SHERP ATV is a real life Micro Machine capable of driving on virtually any terrain imaginable. A 44-horsepower Kubota diesel engine keeps it cruising at up to 28 mph on land and 4 mph on water. If you’re thinking this is solely a military vehicle, think again. You can own one starting at just $65,000. At least you won’t have to invest in paddle tires…
