Funny Car Video: ‘Camelpower’ Overpowers Horsepower!

Funny car videos are something we all like to watch as automotive enthusiasts. The internet has a plentiful collection of hilarious and entertaining car videos showing all sorts of vehicles ending up in the most bizarre situations.

In a latest funny car video from the snowy Russian city of Saratov, viewers are left confused as to what is more important to pull out a car — horsepower or 'camelpower'?

Turns out, it's the second!

Recently, the residents of Saratov had to face heavy snowfall and blizzards than usual. The adverse climate left many roads and buildings submerged in thick layers of snow. Many vehicles were trapped in the snow and those which were able to move eventually ended up in the white; just like this Lada Niva (or Lada 4x4).

Usually a four-wheel-drive vehicle will be able to pull itself out of such challenging terrain conditions. However, the Lada Niva failed to showcase its off-roading prowess and left the owner clueless.

Finally, a Bactrian camel (of all things possible) came to the rescue rather than a bigger 4x4 or a tow-truck. The Russians surely have an interesting approach to everything.

Almost effortlessly, the furry two-humped mammal managed to pull out the white Lada from the snow. It did not stop either. The camel kept on towing it through the entire stretch, with the Lada's spinning tyres contributing little to no help at all.

'Camelpower' has definitely overpowered horsepower.

The Lada Niva is powered by a humble 1.6-litre naturally-aspirated petrol four-pot that makes 79bhp and 133Nm of torque. The power is sent to all four wheels via a five-speed manual.

Did 'Camelpower' Actually Overpower Horsepower?

If you know a thing or two about cars, you might find the above statement a bit misleading. Rather than horsepower, a vehicle would need more torque, traction and driving skills to free itself from a situation like this.

In other words, torque determines how much your vehicle can push through snow from a standstill while horsepower tells how far the car can plunge into the snowy terrain after approaching at full-throttle.
