Sherp's latest off-roader conquers 15ft pond before expertly crawling back onto ice

There’s off-roading and then there’s this: the new 2024 Sherp N 1200 plunging into a 15-feet (4.6 meter) deep pond before emerging back onto the icy terrain.

The Sherp N 1200 was developed by Ukranian automobile maker, Quadro International.

The advanced 4WD is the ultimate all-terrain vehicle.

“There’s no other vehicle on the planet that can crawl from deep water, back onto the ice like the Sherp can,” the post was captioned.

And the unbelievable performance of the Sherp in the footage certainly doesn’t disappoint.

The rugged vehicle can be seen plunging into a seemingly bottomless pond, bobbing back up before it touches the bottom, before clambering out of the other side.

Per its tagline ‘save and serve’, the Sherp N 1200 claims it can drive everywhere covering ‘dense forests, fallen trees, shaky grounds, gravel, peat, moor, marsh, dunes, swamps, boulders, scree, snow, and ice’.

Additionally it also ‘floats constantly at any depth’: from ponds to lakes, rivers to shores, coasts, and even frozen waters.

Said to substitute an ATV, snowmobile, boat, hovercraft, and manpower, it looks like it could easily withstand anything – including a zombie apocalypse.

Not unlike this Black Ops 4×4 modification that turns cars into the most incredible off-roaders.

At the front, you’ve got a massive piece of hardened glass that serves three purposes: it’s a door, a window, and a windshield.

On top of it, you’ll find an off-road-style LED bar that even LeBron James couldn’t reach without a ladder.

For the record, the Sherp is 2.8 meters (9.1 ft) tall – thanks, in part, to its huge and chunky off-road tires, which can be deflated and inflated on demand (using exhaust gases) to navigate different terrains.

Inside, you’ll find six seats with a passenger capacity of up to nine people, including a driver.

It has a total loading capacity of 1,200 kg, which increases to 2,100 kg with its universal cargo trailer.

Both the fuel tank and engine are accessible from the cabin.

The car technically has five fuel tanks.

Each tire can hold up to 58 liters (15 gallons) of fuel, and the main tank can hold up to 95 liters (25 gallons).

This monster can do up to 65 hours of autonomous work and 19 hours of non-stop running on a full 327-liter (86.3-gallon) tank.

And because the Sherp is designed to operate at temperatures ranging from +40°C to -40°C, you also get a fuel heating button.

One thing you won’t find, however, is the steering wheel because, nope, it doesn’t have one.

Instead, you’ve got two levers to lock the wheels.

Basically, you pull the right one back to turn right, the left one back to turn left, and both back to fully brake.

The Sherp can reach a top speed of 40 km/h (25 mph) on land and 6 km/h (4 mph) in the water.

As standard, you get air conditioning, a rear camera, a very loud siren, a bed, an axe, and a pick-axe – just in case.

And this isn’t the first time we’ve seen a car in water recently, as this Chinese EV went ‘swimming’ and fully submerged underwater.
