VIDEO: Avtoros Shaman 8X8 Still Looks Gigantic In Lego Form

If you thought the Unimog was huge then you haven’t seen the Avtoros Shaman 8×8. It’s a Russian monstrous all terrain vehicle that’s fitted with a surprisingly small 3.0 liter four cylinder turbo diesel and a six speed manual transmission. How many horsepower does it have? It doesn’t matter because the vehicle weighs over 10,000 pounds. While it’s top speed is a dinky 50 mph, it is still plenty for going through rough terrain.

Now someone has made a Lego version of the Avtoros Shaman 8×8, and it still looks surprisingly huge given its diminutive scale. The model mimics the gigantic vehicle’s four axle steering giving it the ability to rotate within a small space. This creation is powered with the SBrick, which allows you to control motor functions through an app, turning your Lego creations into a remote control vehicle. Someone needs to take our money now because this model would look great sitting right next to a Lego 911 GT3 RS and a Lego Bugatti Veyron Supersport.
