This is the Avtoros Shaman and it is big. Really big. Straightaway,
you can see it has eight wheels, which is the same as two Range Rovers. But it costs £88,000,
about the same as just one Range Rover. So, on a pound-per-axle basis,
the Shaman is a steal. And back here, you get seating for… everyone you've ever met. And there's an escape hatch…
in case of an emergency. Like, if Uncle Phil
had the egg salad for lunch. And there's a central driving position,
just like the McLaren F1. And the similarities to the F1
don't end there. Like the F1, the Shaman also has a… steering wheel. Okay, here we go. Now, like all the best modern SUVs, the Shaman is right at home
in the centre of town. Whether it's the school run,
or popping out for groceries, or nipping to the pub
for a quick game of darts. The Shaman will do it all. Oh, boy, this is tight. But like all the best modern SUVs,
it's even better suited to the open road. Okay, it's not exactly supersonic. The Shaman will do zero to 60 in… Never. With its sensible three litre diesel, it has a whopping top speed
of 44 miles per hour. And that's a good thing. It encourages you to relax… to watch the world go by. And it's just as sensible on the inside. You got a satnav from the '90s,
temperature controls from the '80s. You got a speedometer and rev counter,
which are basically irrelevant. That's pretty much it…
elegant simplicity. Oh, what's that guy doing?
That doesn't look good. Ooh. Looks like you're in a jam. Should be able to get you out of there.
Let me pull up a little. He smells like whisky. Okay, not what I had in mind,
but let's talk towing. Now, according to the Caravan Club,
the choice SUV is the BMW X5. But that only pulls three and a half tons. The Shaman will tow 12. So, if you've got a local moon
that's out of alignment, the Shaman will set it straight. -Sweet!
-Thank you. Right, back to business
and next up, fuel economy. I know what you're thinking,
"That thing looks thirsty." Well, it is. It gets about 11 miles to the gallon. And it makes you wonder, "Am I going
to have to refuel it every single day?" Well, no, you're not, because the Shaman
holds 260 litres of diesel. It's a super tanker. So, realistically, you're only going to
have to refuel it about every other day.
