Apparently Ford is going to release a performance model of it's Transit van. It won't be the first time this has been done, as you can see from the following picture...I'm not sure if the van below was ever made in to a road legal model though.
Transit with the V8
Ford also introduced the following model a while ago...
Although the latter was rally orientated, it did still only have a diesel engine under the bonnet, which you could understand if it was intended for road use......but it was an off-road only model from what I recall (Ford never made a road going version), and as such I'd have liked to see V8 under the bonnnet
This new model though, is going to be a road model with the most powerful Diesel engine Ford has got for the Transit, although it'll still be an un-modified example, as it's still intended as a commercial vehicle. I think most of the changes are cosmetic though, and include the ST ranges trademark white stripes that run up and over the bonnet and roof of the van. It'll also have 18" alloy wheels and creature comforts such as Air-Con and a CD multi-changer. Unfortunately I couldn't find any pics online, but it looks amazing for a van. If anybody (True_Brit maybe?) can locate any, please post them!
