    Most Extreme Snow Vehicles Ever Created

    Many vehicles will be grinding to a halt this winter – the roads will be too slippery or the snow just too thick. Snow and ice is the enemy of any winter traveller and we have been trying to find ways of conquering it ever since motoring began

    This Nissan Maxima

    Russia can get a little chilly during winter, so it’s no wonder her citizens have begun taking the snow situation into their own hands. This badass monster car was created using a Nissan Maxima for the main cockpit, and all the outer appearance and the suspension characteristics were designed and built using home computer 3D modelling software.

    The Hyanide

    Sometimes referred to as a ‘tank-motorcycle’, the Hyanide is a bike, snowmobile, 4 X 4 hybrid, which means you could potentially ride it all the way from Patagonia to Alaska. The Hyanide’s tread is built from 77 plastic segments covered in tyre rubber, which are linked together by the same material used to make bulletproof vests – kevlar. Due to the fact only a small part of the tread needs to be touching the ground, it would be almost impossible to get stuck.

    The Winston Wong Bio-Inspired Ice Vehicle (BIV)

    Originally known as the Lotus Concept Ice Vehicle (CIV), this was developed to help with research on the Moon Regan TransAntarctic Expedition in 2009. The aim was to complete a transantarctic crossing and also to gather data on the performance of biofuels and humans under extreme conditions. Having completed the trip, it continues to pioneer the way for heavier support vehicles to enter the Antarctic.

    The Lockheed LC-130

    This plane is used by the US military for missions in the Arctic and Antarctic and has retractable skis in order to land in snow and ice. It also has rocket-assisted take-off and is therefore the perfect vehicle for getting out of the snow, fast!

    Michal Bonikowski’s Snowmobile Concept

    Vast white landscapes can give you the impression of being on the moon, so why shouldn’t it feel like you’re travelling in a spaceship? This futuristic snowmobile concept design from Michal Bonikowski – modelled on a shard of ice – offers the comfort and protection of a fully enclosed cockpit, and is perfect for staying dry whilst looking slick in any winter setting.

    The BNSF Rotary Snowplough

    This beastly machine is used in Canada and northern America to shovel snow that’s fallen on the railroad tracks. They use large circular blades to churn through formidable piles of snow, which then gets blown far away from the area after being cleared from the tracks. A truly terrifying sight to behold!

    The Avtoros Shaman 8×8

    The name of this vehicle is significant: the word “Shaman” has always been associated with something unknown and mysterious. Shamans were designed to protect people from bad luck and to be agents on the roads of life. The Avtoros Shaman is an all-terrain vehicle powered by an Iveco F1C 3.0-liter turbo diesel engine, which is designed to protect humans (like these caravans) during crisis. It’s loaded with a 6-speed manual gearbox and has three different steering systems!

    The ARKTOS Evacuation Craft

    Before 2007, you got your boat trapped in the arctic and that was it, nothing could rescue you. But that was before someone at ARKTOS came up with the idea of turning a lifeboat into a tank. It’s capable of evacuating over 50 people in temperatures below -100°F, pushing through ice-rubble fields and shear-zone ice.

    The Soviet Aerosani

    These classic snowmobiles were used by the Soviets during WWII for communication, reconnaissance missions and light raids in the deep northern snow. The Soviets also had Aerosani cars which they used for lighter work, like delivering mail, providing emergency medical response, and border patrol. Industrious lot, those Soviets.

    The Foremost Terra Bus

    With all-wheel drive – that’s 12 wheels, 7 feet in diameter and 6 feet across – the Terra Bus is truly the boss of the Antarctic, providing airport shuttle for up to 56 passengers. Snow, watch out!
