Late Soviet Dieselpunk: MAZ-541

That powerful machine above is probably the largest sedan ever made - it is the first Soviet purpose-built airplane tractor, MAZ-541. Powered by a 38.88 liters, 12-cylinder 300hp D-12A diesel engine (a variation of V-2, heart of mighty T-34 tank) - and was able to tow up to 85 tons (notice that IL-62 on the picture above weighs more then 100 tons).
