Ford will Unveil its New Supervan in Goodwood

Ford will present its fourth Supervan at this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed.

With just a few days to go before the opening of the doors of the Goodwood Festival of Speed in England, Ford is getting ready – like a majority of manufacturers and firms for that matter – to celebrate the automobile at this annual gathering that is very popular with automobile enthusiasts, but also with the automotive press. Indeed, more and more presentations and unveilings take place at this meeting, which often coincides with Quebec’s National Holiday on June 24.

This week, Ford will unveil the fourth Supervan in history, the automaker that introduced the first of the name in 1971, the van of the time that used a GT40 chassis, a commercial van body, and a 5.0-litre V8 engine. Later, in 1983, Dearborn would do it again by taking the skeleton of the C100 endurance prototype and pairing it with the 590-horsepower 3.9-liter Cosworth V8. Finally, it was not until 1994 that we saw a Supervan equipped with a turbocharged 3.5-liter Cosworth V6 delivering 650 horsepower, and this, in a central position.

This time, however, the Ford Performance wing intends to change the game with a purely electric version of the E-Transit Custom van. Here, the Ford Performance and Ford Pro divisions are going to give birth to a project that is likely to be the talk of the town once again. Of course, we’ll have to wait for the official presentation later this week, but based on the automaker’s recent electric prototypes, performance enthusiasts can expect something impressive. The Ford Mustang Mach-E 1400, for example, delivered a staggering 1,400 horsepower through the use of seven electric motors.

Will this fourth Supervan be as monstrous as the crossover-based car inspired by the pony car? We’ll find out soon enough, but one thing’s for sure: the American giant is sure to make commercial van drivers everywhere drool with this new concept.
