The typical pizza delivery vehicle usually isn't all that elaborate.

More often than not, it's just an old beater with a magnetic sign stuck to the roof and some pizzas sliding around in the back.

But huge pizza chain Domino's decided to take things a little bit further.

The company partnered with General Motors to create a purpose-built pizza delivery vehicle, based on the 2015 Chevrolet Spark minicar.

The Domino's DXP (Delivery Expert) has everything one could conceivably need for the job--including a built-in warming oven.

While the merits of the company's pizza itself remain up for debate, it's hard not to admire Domino's dedication to the task of getting its pies to customers promptly.

In the rear of the car, there's room for 80 pizzas, with access through a hatch where one of the side windows used to be.

Apart from the pizza-storage modifications and signage, the DXP is still recognizable as a Spark, although all Chevy badging appears to have been removed.

Note that this vehicle is based on the outgoing first-generation Spark, which will be replaced shortly in showrooms by an all-new 2016 model.

The Spark was chosen in part for its fuel efficiency, Domino's says.

However, the company didn't go so far as to try to convert a Spark EV electric car (currently sold only in California, Oregon, and Maryland) into a pizza delivery vehicle.

The Spark EV will be superseded by the 2017 Chevy Bolt EV, which may perhaps give Domino's some food for thought (no pun intended) regarding a second-generation DXP.

The design of the DXP was adapted from a crowd-sourced concept drawn from a contest overseen by Local Motors.

Local designs cars using this crowd-sourcing method; its current projects include an electric car with a 3D-printed body.

And Domino's actually plans to have the vehicle built and distributed for delivery use, seemingly as a promotional tool.

Chevrolet dealers will receive special training to service the delivery vehicles once they deploy around the country.

There will be 100 vehicles, operating in 25 U.S. markets. Franchise owners will be able to purchase one for $25,000, but they're not required to do so.

Domino's expects the first DXP delivery vehicles to enter service this month.
