It's called the SHERP ATV. Starts at 4.1 million rubles. Or about $51,500 USD. It looks like a Bobcat on steroids.

Would you like to go wherever the hell you want? Using its self-inflated tires, Russia’s SHERP ATV can give you that pleasure. It will climb over obstacles as tall as 27.5 inches, swim with ease, turn like a tank and look awesome in any situation for only $49,000 worth of Rubles. (EDIT Not really the cost of these as the article states)

The SHERP is Alexei Garagashyan’s brilliant invention. It weighs just 2,866 pounds dry, so while it might only have a 44.3 horsepower 1.5 liter Kubota V1505 four-cylinder diesel linked to a five-speed manual, it will still do 28 mph on land, or 3.7 mph in water, depending on the wind. It will also crawl at up to 9.3 mph in first gear.

With its giant custom tires and the skid-steer, it can also turn in its own length, which is 11 feet. And as long as the trees ahead are at least 8.2 feet apart, this crazy two seater will find a way through them.

While it comes with a tough polymer coating and a 15.3 gallon fuel tank as standard, with a bit of extra money, you can equip yours with anything from a high-power generator and a light bar to a trailer and a hard top.

exactly, those are getting very pricey. This may be more functional. Your also enclosed, probably has heat and so on. Plus more capable in water, deep snow and so on. If you are a backwoods kind of guy this would work well.
