Canada-based artist Ivan Benic was always intrigued by the custom van culture of the 1970s, but wanted something a bit more up to date, while still being able to stand out from the crowd.

It weighs in at a massive 10,400 lbs while standing over 6-feet tall, yet still manages to pump out 400 horsepower. However, we don’t know much about the engine or drivetrain, but this custom van was equipped with dual axles in the back as well as dual steering gear in the front.
“We didn’t really think about the money, like a secondary. It’s worth a lot to me, it’s like mechanic’s 10000 dollar tool box is everything to them, so I won’t even consider selling them until I am ready to go and park myself on the beach with a pinna colada,” said Benic.
