So what has the tuning shop done to these utilitarians? While not as wild as their other creations, the end result is aggressive nonetheless. Both vans get a deep, extended front chin while the NV350 comes with vents on the front corner panels. Riveted fender extensions seen on both are inspired from race cars of the past. Finishing off the sides are skirts and door visors.
