The Red Bull-sponsored Kamaz 4326 is arguably one of wildest racing vehicles on the planet. The 20,000-pound truck has a 1000-horsepower 16.2-liter turbo-diesel V8, 16 forward gears, and enough torque to tear down a building. After winning the Dakar rally back in January, the Kamaz is back for some high-flying snow-filled action.
Red Bull released a promotional video yesterday of the Kamaz being driven by 2013 Dakar Rally winner Eduard Nikolaev through a snow covered northwestern part of Russia for some shakedown testing. For the 4326, that means a whole lot of airtime.
Thanks to the truck’s 11.8 inches of suspension travel and huge spiked ice tires, it’s able to launch off snow jumps and drift around frozen corners with ease.
Sure, this video is just an advertisement for Red Bull to sell more energy drinks, but it’s just too cool not to share. Watch for yourself as the diesel-powered behemoth takes flight over the frozen landscape.
