    Spotted a mental transit

    Spotted a Mental transit on the M6 the other day.

    Didnt get a pic though.

    Basically it was a New shape transit ST220

    Complete with St wheels, Painted in st blue big brakes and dual exhaust. It look absoultely brilliant.
    It was on a transporter. Is just a pro mo model or is it avalible model like the vw transporter sportline.
    Any one heard of it?

    whether a general release or a promo model, it sounds promising though. could be interesting to see how many replicas appear within 6 months!

    When will VX do a "hot" van like an ST? hmm.. Vivaro VXR...

    Promo thing of course, I don't think any maker would mass produce a hot van - wouldn't be worth their while

    Just a standard diesel I think, it was just a mock up. Was at PV 2005 from what I can see.



    Had quad irmscher exhausts too and a spoiler, but I'm stuggling to find a pic of the rear that still works on here.
