discover this original Lada Niva with 6 wheels!


In Colombia, craftsmen have totally transformed a wise Lada Niva into a monstrous 6 × 6 made to face in the marshy plains.

The monstrous 6 × 6 are usually based on beasts of the road such as the Mercedes G AMG or Jeep Wrangler. But this time, it is a much more modest base which was chosen with a Lada Niva. The result is no less impressive!

Designed for a purpose

This monster of the road was made by craftsmen from the city of San Jose del Guaviare in Colombia and he is not there to make up! Designed to overcome llanos, vast marshy plains in Central America, the original Niva has undergone many modifications.

An impressive lengthening

The most obvious of these is the extension of the body to accommodate the additional axlee. The platform created makes it possible, among other things, to carry more equipment and the spare wheel. The shock absorbers have been completely replaced for increase the original ground clearance but the rear still remains true to leaf springs.

A real mechanical mechanic

The engine is now a 2.5-liter Kia turbodiesel and if its power is not indicated, it will advantageously replace the small original gasoline engine anyway. The poor man would surely not have been enough with a mass which must have increased considerably. The gearbox comes from a Toyota Land Cruiser 8 series. from the 90s. The rims are also taken from a Land Cruiser, but from the 120 series, while the tires are obviously suitable for the most difficult terrain.
