A rolling, five-ton beast made of ice
How cool is that?
No matter how cold you’re feeling right now, you’re probably better off than our friends in Canada, where it’s cold enough to make a pickup truck ice sculpture on a working chassis.
The team of Canadian Tires have really worked up a sweat for their 5 minutes of fame. To promote the company they have made an ice sculpture on top of a working pick-up. Before piling five tons of ice on the chassis, they welded the frame and suspension rigid to make sure it won’t collapse under the weight.
The whole show seems to have been put on solely to promote their special battery, capable of starting a pick-up in minus 40 degrees Celsius, but hey, it worked.
The monster was actually able to move, albeit at a rather slow speed. It did 1.6 km at an average speed of 20 km/h before returning to the garage where the piece of art eventually melted away.
