MANNY PACQUIAO’S PAC VAN

Do you wonder what was Jinkee’s birthday gift to her husband world’s best pound-for-pound boxer Manny Pacquiao on his 33rd birthday last December 17?

Jinkee gave Manny a highly modified Hyundai County.
  
Multi-awarded car customizer Atoy Llave of Atoy Customs was secretly commissioned by
Jinkee for the Hyundai County van project. It was the newest addition to the Pacman’s fleet of pricey vehicles.

The Hyundai County is a minibus designed by Hyundai Motor Co.’s Jeonju Design center primarily as a tourist and inner city transport to compete with Toyota’s Coaster minibus. Its round sleek features make it more appealing than other commercial vehicles and most of the customization cannot be seen because of heavily tinted glass windows and sunshades.

THE WHOLE Hyundai County was stripped of its interior and re-laid out to accommodate creature comforts one can only find in bigger motorhomes and custom trailer vans.

The van is designed as a local transport to get Manny around town where he can feel secure and with enough room for his security detail.
 

It has a large-screen LCD TV and mobile entertainment system, a washroom complete with a toilet watercloset, folding bed and a mini private chamber which can also serve as his resting area.

Aside from the Hyundai County, Atoy was also commissioned to customize Pacquiao’s other two vans the Ford E-150 van and the Dodge Ram El Capitan. 
Both had undergone extensive interior refurbishment and customizations including new color-coordinated leather interiors, mobile entertainment setup, and instead of the usual carpet treatments, Hornitex laminated wooden floors were used to give it a clean and practically maintenance-free finish.

Atoy shopped all the premium materials from interior finishing materials to the sidewalls, flooring and even the toilet fixtures from CW Home Depot in Ortigas and Balintawak.

Atoy said that he liked the clean and warm feeling you get when you get into the van that it is as if you are stepping inside your house.
