I REVIEWED A SHERP N1200(WITH A TOILET IN BACKGROUND,SMH :/)
Hi all, its good to be back and man I feel proud that I got to see this behemoth and trust me it is a monster
OK, let us start with an example. For instance, your favourite singer say 'The Weeknd' comes to your country. You will do anything to get to his concert because that would be once in a lifetime thing right? Same is the situation for me with the SHERP. Ever since I saw this thing on the internet, I always dreamt of it and wondered what it would look in real life. Fast forward----- 2021, the shittest, dumbest, patheticist(you need to feel the emotions, I know I spelled them wrong) year of all time, I get a news. SHERP is coming to India for the first time. SRK was actually right.
He is saying whatever you dream of, if you give your 100%, the universe will give it to you for sure!
TRAUMA OF MY LIFE WAS ABOUT TO COME
Now was the biggest irony and problem of my life. I have loved cars since childhood but in my adulthood the irony was I hated driving. Driving is the most difficult job in this whole world. The SHERP was being showcased at about 40km(25miles) from my house. "Nahh!! I will not take an indirect metro to that place, I'll get covid for sure". My father won't lend his driver to me for a whole day and I will surely kill someone if I drive there to the event myself. I called my friend that night and after much needed motivation, like the mighty ALEXANDER, I decided to take on this conquest of 40km and guess what? I managed to reach my house without killing anyone.
REACHING THE EVENT
I finally reached the event and bam I hear the engine noise of these SHERPS. It was indeed a glorious moment for me. I finally got to ride the SHERP and review it. They were parked like this and oh boy!! it was going to be quite special for me.
Zombies?!! WHO SIR??
VOSSEN? LEXANI? OR BRABUS LUXURY WHEELS? YOU WOULD LIKE A SHERP WHEEL SIR!
Guys we need to put aside the wheel size in this case, no point in talking about the absolutely obvious 71 inch, yup 71 inch wheels and no I am not done. There is no luxury machine cut alloys or cool looking steelies. Instead it has a 60 litre tank(15 gallons), in each wheel(60x4=240 L). One can use it to store fuel, water or any fluid in it (I might store Shikanji if I am going to Antarctica in it). The wheels can inflate/deflate with a touch of a button in only 30 seconds. It uses it exhaust for this.
Please ignore the पुरुष शौचालय sign, I am embarrassed. I am trust me guys!
CAN THIS POSSIBLY RUN OVER YOU?
I do not think so, I mean come on. It has a ground clearance of 0.6 meter so no!
FOR A VEHICLE SO BIG, IT MUST HAVE A 1000+ HP ENGINE RIGHT?
Yes fools like me think like this, bigger= better yeah!! I know you guys are smart. It has a Korean engine, a DOOSAN D18. Only 1.8L with a max 61 HP thats it. It does not take much space and is quite reliable. The engine is placed in the middle section like a Lamborghini/Ferrari. Hence it is an exotic vehicle.
HOW DO YOU GET INSIDE THIS THING?
Every SHERP comes with a personal human who will help you get on this vehicle.
Else you can climb up the ladder from the back or climb inside from the front hatch of the SHERP. It is a difficult feat to achieve and everytime I did this, I felt proud!
AHHHHH this toilet background is killing me now, I am deeply embarrassed guys.
IF YOU PLAN TO STEAL IT, HERE IS THE CRASH-COURSE
There is no steering wheel in it nor the enormous 71 inch wheels steer like a normal vehicle. Instead it has two brake levers, one for each side set of the wheels of the SHERP(left and right). You need to engage the brake lever of the left side to go left and vice versa. It has a so called "skid steering mechanism" which arrests the motion of the wheels on one side, enabling you to go in that direction. Think of it like if you are walking and I stop your LEFT foot, you'll still be walking with your RIGHT foot okay and then you will have a tendency to go LEFT, try it out!! Watch my video, I have clearly explained it there.
The brake lever
LET US TALK INTERIOR
Well like I said it is an off roader. Interior is not exactly what you'd hope from a $100k vehicle but it is comfy enough. It can accommodate around 7-8 people and can be modified for any purpose from ambulance to personnel carrier. It even has an LCD monitor.
If you feel that you are useless remember that SHERP comes with two cup holders 😐😐
OH AND IT CAN SWIM AS WELL
It is designed as a boat, i.e even with no power it can stay afloat. The 71 inches wheels displaces enough water to make it swim over water surfaces.
BONUS TRIVIA, IT COPIES ONE THING FROM G WAGON
Yes you read it right. The SHERP features a side exhaust pipe like a G wagon. Too bad SHERP, try to be original please!!
