Fiat debuts Ducato "Truckster" concept
Fiat's Light Commercial Vehicles Division is showing off its brand new Ducato at the Madrid Motor Show today, and to celebrate the launch of the new version the Fiat Style Center has created the "Truckster" show van.
With a style described as "modern and exuberant," the Truckster would certainly stand out in a crowd of tuner vehicles, if only because of its size - over 21 feet in length and 8+ feet high, the winged Truckster is not a vehicle for introverts.
The concept of "sporting performance applied to a commercial vehicle" is manifest in the huge rear-mounted biplane wing, the side pipes, and those must-have sponsor decals adorning the rear quarter. Other features include hydraulic gullwing doors, LED headlights, and a sporty interior treatment. The Truckster rolls on massive 28-inch wheels.
We'll see if we can get our hard-working Madrid Auto Show team to grab some live shots - in the meantime, enjoy the designers' sketches after the jump.
