In-game model for Ivan


  • Ivan was a nickname used by Americans for Soviets during the Cold War (as "Jerry" was for the Germans during World War II).
  • The character's name is likely inspired by Ivan the Terrible, a mentally ill Russian tsar, famous for his raging personality.
  • His car resembles the Lada 2105, also known as the Lada Riva.
  • Strangely, In Carmageddon: Reincarnation The Bear is a right-hand drive vehicle, altough as it is bassed on a Russian-made Lada/UAZ vehicle it should have been a left-hand drive vehicle.
