Meet The Russian Avtoros Shaman 8×8
So here is the Russian Avtoros Shaman 8×8 monster. The Avtoros Shaman is 18 feet long, almost 10 feet tall and weighs 2.5 tons. This truck can carry 1.5 tons of cargo and can scale a 45 degree incline. The Avtoros is powered by an Iveco F1C 3.0 turbo diesel that puts out about 146 horsepower straight through its 6 speed manual transmission. Probably the craziest thing about the Avtoros Shaman is it’s steering system. The 8 wheel drive Shaman has 3 different steering systems, allowing the driver (from the driver’s seat) the ability to switch between On-Road (front 4-wheel drive), Off-Road (active rear wheel steering), and Crab Mode (turns all 8 wheels in sync to move sideways). After this check out this monster of a fire truck.
