The Russian mechanic and local ice sculptor created the Mercedes G-Class SUV using blocks of ice mounted on a metal chassis and powered by an old engine.

Barashenkov had the sculptor create the body out of ice and he mounted it to the chassis of an old UAZ 469 military utility vehicle. The ice SUV is a drivable vehicle, but only on smooth surfaces. It weighs a massive 5 tones.

Barashenkov gave it a little sparkle by also fitting color LED lights to it which create a beautiful effect when reflecting off the ice.
