The idea of building a plush, family four-wheel drive on a truck's ladder frame might seem like an odd recipe, but it's given rise to some seriously popular family four-wheel drives. The Chevrolet Suburban has been carting American families around since the 1930s, and in more recent times Asia-Pacific buyers have been treated to a glut of truck based seven seaters.

But the Russian vehicle is indeed real and it's one hell of a way to drive over anything short of a sheer cliff face.
