An ice pickup truck made out of 11,000lbs of ice was sculpted by a team named ‘Iceculture’ in Ontario, Canada.

The cool truck has a steel frame to provide extra support and it was made for Canadian Tire, to show how well car batteries it makes hold up in extreme cold.

The truck is not only beautiful to look at, but we can take a cool ride on it.

To prove it, a team from ‘Iceculture’ drove the vehicle for a mile at 12mph.

And it comes together with license plates, a pine tree-shaped air freshener, and special fans to prevent the exterior from melting.

The truck is now reckon in the Guinness World Record.

It must be very interesting to ride on the cool ice truck!

And it took 40 hours for the ice truck to melt.
