Travel the real Russia!
Our «CrazyBu» van is an original and authentic Russian military UAZ-452 van, built in 2010. Initially, this vehicle was designed in 1950s as a support vehicle for military forces. Now it‘s still being produced, just as it was sixty years ago… And, surprisingly, it looks almost like it did in 1965!
The UAZ-452 looks very similar to a VW transporter, but there is also huge difference: VW was designed in Germany, the country of perfect and numerous paved highways. Our «CrazyBu» van was designed to survive in Russian countryside. It is a Land Cruiser 40 at the back of its mind – sturdy axles, a heavy frame, stout under drive and robustness in every way. Do you really need to build highways if you produce such vans?
Combined with four-wheel drive, it was born to endure any off-road condition! Nine men can be comfortably seated inside this van – and nine men can push it out of any mire! Unfortunately, the design engineer considerably upgraded the engine: now it cannot use any liquid as a fuel except Au-92 :)
