The new Fiat Ducato ‘Truckster’ concept was unveiled during the Madrid International Motor Show (from 25 May to 6 June 2006) and has generated pretty good press the last weekend.
The ‘Truckster’ has been based on the latest Fiat Ducato commercial van in order to demonstrate just how flexible is the new platform that the vehicle is based on (besides the Ducato, it is also shared by the new Peugeot Boxer, Citroen Relay, Mexican-built Peugeot Manager and the Citroen Jumper.)
The ‘Truckster’ has 6.48 meters in length, 2.55 meters in height and is 2.49 meters wide, all this mass being packed into a stylish, sporty looking exterior that features trendy LED headlights, an energetic-looking biplane rear aerodynamic spoiler, hydraulically controlled gull-wing doors and 28-inch wheels.
Created by Fiat Style Centre, the concept vehicle is fully functional and can be used in future motor shows and sport events.
However, the probability of it becoming a real street-legal truck is close to zero.
