Well, we can't say it looks a whole lot better in person than it did in the design sketches we posted earlier. Our man in Madrid, Alberto has graced us with a smattering of photos from his trip to the Madrid Auto Show for  Autoblog Spanish.  We'd recommend clicking out the site, where you can find more photos, including hi-res shots for your viewing pleasure.

The interior of the Truckster continues the tuner-esque theme of the sport truck, outfitted by Sabelt with competition-style seats with five-point harnesses and a sport steering wheel (no word on the function of the steering wheel buttons). The truck is also fitted with a rollcage and a final performance feature - drilled aluminum pedals.

The exterior views highlight what may be the world's largest underbody diffuser, and the 28-inch "turbine"-style wheels.

More insanity after the jump...

      What is it with other countries tring to DISS our homeland the free and the proud brave Americans who's now covered with so many other Nationalities who would rather just have fun showing off a truck like this in our drive way,

      Than have to worrie about fighting to dominate another
      countries as a man with little hopes of ever owning a truck like this, at least i had the privilege of see another mans dream turned to reality, and yeah it's a babe magnet,

      An this my friend is from a middle aged man in the heart of the south yeah i live in a southern State of America and mighty proud of who i am and what i stand for thank you,

      Thats still a good lookin truck man.

      In the second last picture it appears the model likes the truck a bit too much.

      I know it's only a concept something most people comenting seem to have forgotten,
      But if this was to be put into production as it is and not altered to suit the negative coments, i'd sell my house and the kids to be able to buy one it looks fantastic.
      Fiat really need to look at the concepts that get made and tke a chance and produce them there sales would go up for sure.

      Looks like a blast to drive. Like riding a Moped. You want to ride it, but not admit it.

      In USA we have monster trucks and nascar trucks and... in europe they race what we would call class 8 tractors. I've seen them doing practice laps at Le Mans. Single rear axle, cab over body... this concept shows the basic idea. Don't get upset that this is really a serious commercial concept, it's not.

      Still looks better than most of the stuff Americans come up with.

      90% of the non-commercial trucks on the road are never used to carry any more challenging cargo than groceries. Practicality? I laugh my ass off listening to these moms/dads with 2 kids try to rationalize how they need an Explorer/Suburban.

      Most trucks are just a fashion statement. Why not have a fashion statement that is a bit more modern looking than the barely-changed-look-since-the-seventies stuff from the domestics and the Japanese?

      Admittedly, the styling does go a bit into boy-racer land. However, you could set it up easily for a goose-neck, and wouldn't that be a great tow vehicle for your racecars?

      Or, carry the theme back for a really interesting motorcoach chassis. Leave the diffusers, they're just too much fun.
