MAN WITH A VAN

New Zealand Classic Car - - Feature -

While TWR was work­ing on the V6 for the XJ220, it needed a road-go­ing test ve­hi­cle. The XJ220 hadn’t been fin­ished, so the en­gi­neers found an­other mule to trans­plant the test ver­sion into: a Ford Tran­sit. The 404kw twin-turbo V6 was mounted in the cen­tre of the van along­side ex­ten­sive Xj220-centric run­ning gear. The Tran­sit still ex­ists and is oc­ca­sion­ally rolled out for events such as the Good­wood Fes­ti­val of Speed, com­plete with empty chip packets lit­ter­ing the dash like a proper van should have.
