With a top speed of just 43 MPH, the Shaman ATV from Russia-based Avtoros won’t be running any zombies over in an apocalypse.

Powered by a three-liter Iveco F1C diesel engine and a six-speed transmission, the 146-HP Shaman rides on low-pressure tires that allow it to handle snowdrifts and swampland with ease. It also boasts a water-ready frame that can be paired with a screw propeller to enable over-water travel.
