Truckster Is The Ultimate New Ducato!

Truckster Is The Ultimate New Ducato!


Click for big version

Fiat have taken the wraps off the new Fiat Ducato at the Madrid International Motor Show (25 May - 6 June 2006) and revealed the Truckster, which takes the new Ducato to extremes, demonstrating just how flexible the Ducato is for converters.

The Truckster is generously proportioned - 6.48 metres long, 2.55 m high and 2.49 metres wide - and has style that can only be described as modern and "exuberant", thanks to a strategy which accentuates the concept of sporting performance applied to a commercial vehicle, with features such as 28 inch wheels, LED headlights, hydraulically-controlled gull wing doors, smoked glass windows and an aerodynamic spoiler. The interiors have also been given the same sporty feel, emphasizing its "road racer" personality.

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 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.

This capacity for transformation has always been a key feature of the Ducato. Take the camper van version, for instance, leader in its field with two out of three campers in Europe built on a Ducato base, all thanks to the technical characteristics of a vehicle designed for body fitters.
