UAZ-452 (УАЗ-452) (nicknamed Буханка (Bukhanka or Bread loaf), Таблетка (Tabletka or Pill) or Golovastik (Tadpole)) is a family of unique off-road vans produced at the Ulyanovsk Automobile Plant. In March 2011 this car has upgraded on specific models: 39625, 3962 and 2206. Added were ABS brakes, power steering, seat belts and Euro-4 engine as standard.
Because of the external similarities with a loaf of bread, the van became known as Буханка (Bukhanka, "loaf") or Таблетка (Tabletka, "pill") in Russian. The car is produced in several modifications, with the main difference being the body type (e.g. UAZ-3741 "Bukhanka" van, and UAZ 3303 "Golovastik" ("tadpole") pickup truck). The body of the van is normally equipped with two front doors, a single-wing door on the right side and a double-wing door in the rear, although the exact configuration can vary depending on the specific modification. Notable in the van are the fuel ports on the left and the right side of the van, leading to two separate fuel tanks. The engine, placed between the left hand driver and the front-seat passenger, is from the GAZ-21.
The UAZ-452 is a 4×4 off-road heir to the earlier 4×2 UAZ-451. Serial production of the UAZ-452 started in 1965.
