The Toyota Land Cruiser is a pretty hot model around the world. But it took the Russians to make it cool. We have few hard, cold facts and only small slivers of information about these photos, but it seems the icy Toyota was part of the International Snow & Ice Festival in Perm, Russia.

Artists took a huge chunk of ice and shaved it down to the temporary art installation you see here. The sub-zero SUV comes complete with a full interior accessed by the (permanently frozen open) driver's side door. The steering wheel and seats look to be upholstered in, well, dirt. With the back seats removed, the frigid four-door is a pretty slick ride in which to chill out.

Just a thought, but wouldn't a Toyota Tundra have been more appropriate? See the gallery for more photos.

      That's actually a real Land Cruiser. That's just how cold it is there in Russia.

      I wonder how long it will take a Russian driver to crash it?

      The fridge in the center console is sealed off. How am I supposed to keep my drink cold?

      Ironically this Russian built "Land Cruiser" lasts 50% longer than a real Russian built car. Probably performs better too.

      You have to live in Russia for a while to understand how iconic the Land Cruiser is. Tundras on the other hand are not popular at all, like most of the trucks that we're so used to over here in the States.
