Sherp amphibious vehicles spotted in India

The big-fat tyres also give it buoyancy. When travelling on water, the tyres act as a paddle wheel on a ferry boat.

Russia-based Sherp is known to build some of the most capable all-terrain vehicles in the world. Now, it seems the company is planning to introduce their products in India.

Sherp has imported two examples of its amphibious vehicle in India. The company posted a video showing the vehicles being loaded onto a trailer.

The Sherp is designed to tackle just about any type of terrain. It measures 3,400 mm in length, 2,520 mm in width and 2,300 mm in height. It has massive tyres and zero overhangs which makes it easier to drive up steep inclines.

The big-fat tyres also give it buoyancy. When travelling on water, the tyres act as a paddle wheel on a ferry boat.

The Sherp is powered by a 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder, diesel engine that produces 44 BHP. The engine is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. The vehicle weighs 1,300 kg and is said to have a top speed of 45 km/h. It relies on a skid steering system to change direction.
