ATON IMPULSE VIKING Off-Road Amphibious VehicleFebruary 7th, 2014
The ATON IMPULSE VIKING-2992 is a Russian built (of course) off road amphibious vehicle that is quite possibly without equal. We don’t know if the company building them still exists or whether these are still possible to find, but ATON IMPULSE claims they sold a number of vehicles in the 2009-2010 timeframe.
The VIKING is the only only amphibious off-road vehicle in the world to have passed through certification to meet worldwide regulations for unrestricted on-road use. That’s right, you could drive this beast to the local supermarket. Powered by a VAZ-2130 1.8-liter engine that puts out a max of 82 horsepower, you won’t get anywhere in a hurry (although the company once had plans to include a more powerful engine). On land, the VIKING tops out about 37 mph. But in water you can keep going at up to 6 mph.
