12-wheeled "Niva", exhibited at the International Motor Show in Moscow, caused a barrage of ridicule

12-wheeled "Niva", exhibited at the International Motor Show in Moscow, caused a heated discussion in social networks, where the novelty was ridiculed by bloggers and journalists. People laugh at the unsightly appearance of the car, as well as its useless technical qualities. One of the posts dedicated to the new "Niva" BDTT hit the top of the most popular entries in the "LiveJournal".

Those who could attend the Moscow International Motor Show could not fail to notice this 12-wheeled monster. As you remember, the auto show itself began scandalously, because Passed without the participation of many Japanese and European car brands. Compared with the previous dealership, the number of participants decreased by five times. The rest saved the situation by the size of the stands and the novelties especially for Russia.Yes, the main square occupied "Avtovazovtsy" and the Chinese.

But let's start by reading what they write about this amazing machine ...

12-wheeled "Niva", exhibited at the International Motor Show in Moscow, caused a barrage of ridicule

"Niva" began to produce 40 years ago, and even then she was a great car. Nevertheless, attempts to improve the "Niva" (instead of doing something more modern from scratch) continue to this day. At the International Motor Show in Moscow, the public showed this 12-wheeled miracle called BDTT. This is the project of Tavrichesky Roadless.

Unfortunately, a non-standard project remains a project. However, in two years he became somewhat different and, most importantly, he found a real incarnation. They didn’t give up the idea of ​​additional axles and wheels: now it’s essentially a separate module-frame, which in its “transport” state is ... a trailer for a passenger off-road vehicle, with which it drives on public roads off-road.

And there the wheels are temporarily removed from the trailer, the car “hits” on the frame and that is mounted under the bottom of the SUV, after which the additional wheels are re-installed in their seats. Two more pairs of wheels are joined to the main wheels of the car (they are mounted directly “disk to disk” with 10 additional bolts) and ... “roadless” is ready for further movement.

This scheme allows you to use even some kind of tracks to transfer torque from the rear wheels to the additional side. By “playing” with pressure and / or depreciation of additional axes, you can change the degree of additional “support”. A hinge design allows you to fold extra wheels for the possibility of opening the doors and ensure a normal fit in the car.

Unfortunately, design flaws are immediately apparent, the main one being the limited and very small angle of rotation of the front wheels. Additional wheels already with a slight turn of the steering wheel begin to rest on the arches. They can also limit the suspension stroke. And the frame bolted from below with “axes” limits the ground clearance. It is also highly desirable to equip the SUV with additional cross-axle locks - otherwise the very first bend of the terrain will be stopped by the “roadless”.

The design of the car is an excellent anti-theft tool, since the extra wheels do not allow opening any doors. To get to the salon, you need to think of bending the wheel of the driver's door. Of course, not a single hijacker would ever think of such a thing, even if he wanted to marvel at this miracle.

It only remains to add that with all the shortcomings and controversial points this project has its advantage: the relative simplicity and the possibility of retrofitting almost any serial SUV.

And now about the serious. You know, I am only “for” the development of our car industry. It turns out that something with Vesta, X-Ray and the like is good, well done. There is some groundwork for the future - the prospect is excellent.

But it's some kind of shame. As they say on the Internet, many children make such concepts and models at the age of 12. They tell the designers of this machine that you can make four wheels on the roof and then it will also roll when it turns over (like with Screw-Shpuntik).

Many are indignant - as for this someone can also receive a salary. This is the level of the circle of skillful hands for teens.

Yes, this miracle to get stuck easier than on the usual "Niva". The designer of her probably would have fallen for the heart after seeing this. How do they imagine opening the driver's door when the car is stuck in a rut? In the window to climb? Through the trunk?

And as soon as the front and back will scoop up the soil from under him, he will remain standing on 4 central wheels, helplessly turning the front and back ...

And most likely there is some kind of muddy office decided on the basis of Niva zabatsat just such a "type of all-terrain vehicle." Here, rather, the question is about the very “small business” and the very “private trader” that everyone is oppressing. At the same time, this very private trader here is such a miracle project about anything riveted.
