• retooled SUV
For a long time, Mikhail Ryabinin wanted to create a unique SUV that is suitable for extreme travel. The choice fell on UAZ, which is still called "loaf". In this collection are photographs, which is a miracle car industry is represented in all its glory. We can see that the machine is equipped with all necessary equipment and is sure to feel on a variety of roads.
Today, we will tell you about the impressive off-road monster UAZ 2206 owned by Mikhail Ryabinin from Moscow.
Why UAZ 2206 was the chosen vehicle of Michael? it's pretty simple here. The idea of the project was to build a real author ekspeditsionnik based on the minibus with the possibility of off-road training and comfortable living in poor conditions.
The choice was between domestic cars: UAZ and GAZ Sobol 4x4. As a result, the choice fell on the UAZ 2206: Loaf allows you to live in it, and still have a high cross, plus the option of tuning UAZ much more. It finally determined the choice.
So by accident in 2012 by Michael came upon Buhanka- new version on malolistovyh and booster. The most important goal of this project was to create not just all-terrain monster, convenient, comfortable and traveled by car for long distance travel.
"We built the car is not for the pathos, but for themselves. For long autonomous travel, including the north "- says the author of the project.
The car has been completely redesigned. Ahead: new bumper reef area under the hoist and winch Runva EWX9500, back reef with a gate under the spare tire and the square under the hitch. Thresholds, ladder, snorkel and trunk at the top - as RIF.
Since the reserve is carried over to the power bumper RIF with a gate, and a regular place chute 35th wheel will not fit, it was decided to use the space formed for the additional tank made of stainless steel capacity of 120 liters.
UAZ Michael also endured suspension lift and body, replacing the major pairs and kit set in razdatku. Also Expeditionary car waiting for pneumatic locking differentials, a powerful generator and the wheels in 35 inch.
uazovsky chairs do not provide for tilting the backrest, so comfortable traveling long distances will not work. I had regular passenger cabin to throw and to seek appropriate. As a donor to the cabin-transformer made Hyundai Starex. The only problem was put back so that one row was completely mobile. But deal with it. Also inside the erected steel profile sleeping bag, one of which makes recline good table for three. In transport a sleeping bag turns into a shelf that can be done lifting for 5 minutes. There were air system and heater compartment.
Moreover, the UAZ was used to test some of the technical solutions and new equipment RIF. So, on this car it was a preproduction run-generator 150A, springs, electric fan and snorkel. "Many of the hearing, that the car will eventually cost at 1, 5 million, saying that the loaf is not for this" - says Michael.
This car Michael drove to the festival off-road campers Glober Trotter Treffen, which took place in Munich. After he went on a trip on mountains of Austria, before returning to Russia. I dashed about 7500 km with 17 liters fuel consumption.
Cars - it's not just a hobby Michael, but also his work. He is editor in chief of the magazine offroadclub and his life and work - is off-road and travel to them. "The main lesson of any tuning: tuning can not be finished, it can only be suspended. I even Toyota and two UAZ and with them have yet to be a lot of things to do. So do not get bored, "- says the author of the project.
A look at the concept of the project during its construction is slightly changed, new ideas come to mind, which would have to be implemented initially. But in general, the image of the completed project at hand, but Michael would like to have something else to finish for completeness.
Well, good luck to Michael. No doubt the author of the project and its UAZ 2206 Project "Loaf" offers a lot of exciting adventures and expeditions.
