Today's been full of destruction and floods and all sorts of unpleasantness. So let's have a look at some other, much more fun unpleasantness, like this wildly-girlie Suzuki Kei Van done up to look like an old VW Microbus soaked in candy estrogen.
Over at SEMA, our photographer saw this insane little ride. It hails from China, and seems to be a Chinese-market Suzuki kei-type van. I've seen the faux-VW kits on Kei vans before, and this one looks a bit different, a bit more funhouse, but the same idea.
It looks like this one makes 96 HP, which for a van this size, should be pretty fun. Or terrifying, or both.
The intense pink upholstery and the details like the heart-shaped wheel certainly won't be to everyone's taste, but this does further my theory that these little vans would be great platforms for intense, delirious personalization, if desired. There's a fair amount of room inside, even if it does sort of look like a drag queen's brain exploded in there.
Honestly, I'd love to see more crazy show cars based on these little vans. I'm thinking a Cthulhu theme might be fun, and maybe a sort of neo-classical Roman thing. There you go, customizers, two free ideas!
