Is this the Coolest Car ever made?
A Russian car tuner has created what could quite easily be called the ‘coolest’ car in the world. Quite literally, because the vehicle’s bodywork is crafted from six tons of the finest Siberian ice.
The vehicle is intended as a frosty replica of the latest Mercedes G-Class, which was unveiled at the Detroit motor show last month. It’s not an exact copy, however – not only is it around three times as heavy, but it sits on a rather less sophisticated platform – taken from a Soviet-era UAZ jeep.
The tuners built a frame which they added the ice blocks to, after cutting and shaping them with a chainsaw. The finished product is equipped with colourful LED lighting and was built in just two weeks by Siberian garage Garazh54.
