At the Madrid International Motor Show, (25 May – 4 June) Fiat is unveiling the new Ducato, taking over from its successful model which has sold over 1.7 million vehicles since 1981.
For this prestigious occasion the Fiat Light Commercial Vehicles Division has come up with a unique show-van for the event: the Ducato “Truckster”.
Created by the Fiat Style Centre with the collaboration of Bosch SpA, Behr GmbH, SEWS CABIND SpA (Sumitomo Group) and Denso Thermal System SpA, this original concept vehicle is generously proportioned: 6.48 metres long, 2.55 m high and 2.49 metres wide.
The all-new 2006 Fiat Ducato The style is modern and “exuberant”, thanks to a design which accentuates the concept of sporting performance applied to a commercial vehicle, with features like 28 inch wheels, LED headlights, hydraulically-controlled gullwing doors, smoked glass windows and an aerodynamic spoiler.
The interiors have also been given the same sporty feel, emphasising its “road racer” personality.
With its sense of power and sportiness, the Ducato Truckster takes the style hallmarks of the new Ducato to extremes.
Like the Ducato it is also a modular vehicle with a huge range of possible uses: purely as a show car, or as an “Adventure” vehicle for transporting race cars or motorbikes, or even as a runway for fashion shows.
