The Albanian Tartan Prancer Just Might Be the Coolest Non-Existent Ride Ever
"Crafty like lynx. Fast like Eagle. Tough like bear."
That's the tagline used to drive sales of the all-new 2015 Albanian Tartan Prancer, the crazy cool ride that's the Eastern European mid-range. You know you already want one. Sorry 'bout your luck - this one's only available if you happen to exist within the fictional realm of the upcoming Vacation movie.
That's right - the Griswolds are on the road again in the new film set for release July 29. This time, it's a grown up Rusty at the wheel with his own brood and a mission to treat them to the same fun-filled, family bonding, Walley World road trip experience that dear old Dad provided in 1983's comedy classic National Lampoon's Vacation. But Rusty (played by Ed Helms), wife Debbie (Christina Applegate) and their two sons have their own ultra-modern version of the original Griswold's Wagon Queen Family Truckster Station Wagon.
Here's how the film's website amusingly advertises the Prancer which, as best as we here at E3 Spark Plugs can tell, might be based on the Toyota Previa:
The Prancer has emerged from the heart of Albanian engineering and Eastern European technology to become a perennial heavy weight in the Mid-Range Family Mini Van Sedan Crossover Segment. This affordable family trickster can easily navigate the heartiest of war-torn roads and check points.
A full-featured dashboard customizes your Prancer experience in a variety of interesting ways. The sleek design and aerodynamics take note from "Beach '60s Cool" to "Baby Got Back." People won't know if you are coming or going when you experience patent-pending Auto Adaptive Over Compensation Steering Differential.
Don't be Average. Be Mid Range. Prancer.
If that doesn't sell you on this fabulously funky and functional ride, we don't know what will.
