About 2014 KiraVan

The truck was built on a Mercedes-Benz platform by Applied Minds LLC, a company whose co-chairman is Ferren himself. And as you have probably noticed, the 2014 KiraVan is named after his daughter, Kira. Ferren build this off-road vehicle for his daughter to allow her to travel around the world. It is ready for all kind of terrains and is equipped with the latest technology and modern gadgets that can be found in the attached 31-foot-long and 10-foot-high trailer. The only problem is that Kira is a 4-year-old girl, so she has to wait for about 14 years before she sit behind the steering wheel.

Inside, the 2014 KiraVan is quite luxurious. It has a bedroom, eco-friendly bathroom, kitchen, galley, loft, server-based media library, and office equipped with a bunch of communication systems, including a satellite connection. It took millions of dollars and almost four years for Ferren to made this ultimate adventurer vehicle.

Its traveling range is more than 2000 miles, and it can carry 170 gallons of fuel. The truck rides on the six wheels wrapped in 46-inch Kevlar-reinforced tires, so there are no worries if a tire will blow up when driving across any terrain.

The 2014 KiraVan is powered by a 6-cylinder diesel engine, producing 260 horsepower and 700 lb-ft of torque, allowing the truck to reach the top speed of 70 miles per hour without the trail, or just 30 mph with trail attached.

There is also a turbodiesel KiraBike, a motorcycle meant for exploration. It is stored on a rear elevator.

Ferren has plans to go on a road trip with his family by the end of this year. It will be the right time to test his ultimate all-terrain vehicle.
