Um super-blindado de luxo (tunning)

This vehicle “BRDM”, if to translate literally it is “Combat Reconnaissance/Patrol Vehicle”, armored scout car.
There were plenty of such in Arabic countries like Iraq or Iran or Syria also.
But this is not a regular military vehicle. It was bought by a entrepreneur and was pimped up heavily.
First of all it is an amphibian vehicle – it can both move by roads and swim by rivers or lakes.
It is powered with V8 5.5 diesel engine to carry its multi ton body across the roads. It has four general wheels but there are four more, hidden under its bottom, if somebody comes to a road like this he can push a button and use four additional wheels to make his road.
It has of course a multi speaker sound system, GPS navigation, TV, DVD and a periscope to see clearly what’s going on when you are swimming across the nearest lake. Also there is a sonar mounted with which the car owner can monitor the water under his so to say car. Night vision system is there too.
