Let’s be honest, Lada cars aren’t known as the best vehicles out there, but in the hands of a Russian master, a Lada could be turned into… you probably didn’t guess it, a tank.

Pavel Shavrin, an engineer from the city of Magnitogorsk, in Russia's Chelyabinsk Region, made a tank [albeit without a gun-turret] out of his old Lada car.

It took Shavrin six months and 100,000 rubles (around $1,300) to install the body of a car onto a tracked platform and build the truly dreadful-looking all-terrain vehicle, called Rosomakha ("Wolverine").

The vehicle can reach speeds of up to 50 km/h and drive in all road conditions. According to RT, the man decided to build the tank because once he couldn't drive to his house in a village due to poor road conditions. Because of that, his rabbits and chickens died, making Shavrin determined to build the tank so he could to get to his village — rain or shine.
