This thing with a sticky-out front is a Shinkansen N700 high speed train, used on several routes in Japan.

That’s not the interesting bit. The interesting bit is that it has 64 axles of which 56 are powered, that is all of them except those in the end cars. Also, 22,900 bhp.

It is therefore not 4wd but 112wd. You don’t see that every day.
