A man named Vladislac Barashenko from Siberia, Russia built himself a Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen out of the most abundant resource here, the ice.
In January, the weather in Siberia is extremely cold, only -13 degrees Fahrenheit (-25 degrees Celsius) so there a bunch of ice around. And the guy came up with the idea of creating a driving copy of the Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen with ice.

Of course, some parts of the car require melt-proof materials such as the internal combustion car engine, tires as well as suspension systems. Therefore, he decided to use the running gear and chassis of the old Soviet Jeep Wrangler, UAZ 469 for his special horse.

According to the local news, Barashenko and his friends used a steel frame to hold icebergs together. 6 tons of ice blocks used to build the car were pure frozen Siberian water.
In spite of being as heavy as an elephant, the icy Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen is totally able to run. Also, the most attractive thing about the icy car is neon lights installed across its body, so the unique icy G-Wagen is capable of colourfully lighting up.
Barashenko made this icy G-Wagen in more than two weeks and it cannot melt in -13 degrees Fahrenheit (-25 degrees Celsius) in Siberia.
