On the other side of the Channel, the Goodwood Festival of Speed ​​(June 23 – 26, 2022) is currently taking place, an automotive event which brings together many historic racing vehicles. It is also an opportunity for some manufacturers to put several of their projects in the spotlight.

Polestar, for example, gave more information on its Polestar 5, its future anti-Tesla Model S. Ford, for its part, presented its Ford Pro Electric SuperVan, which brings the Ford Transit Supervan up to date but with the electric sauce.

2000 horsepower

As a reminder, this vehicle produced from the 1970s combined the style of the Transit van and the performance of a sports racing car. But it is this time in the era of time that this supercharged vehicle is making a comeback, as a “that high-speed science experiment», Underlines the press release.

Five driving modes

Inside, a SYNC touchscreen – the same as on the Ford Mustang Mach-E – was installed by the engineers. The vehicle can also send real-time data “to remote vehicle management software“, so that it can be monitored via an application “which translates live data into information on speed, lap times“.

Several modes offer different driving experiences: Rally, Drift, Drag (maximum acceleration), Track (to balance speed and cornering on the track) and Road. However, do not expect to see this vehicle being marketed by Ford, which seeks above all to unpack, as we said, all its know-how.

The F-150 Lightning can charge Teslas and Ford promises it's not for trolling

Ford has started deliveries of its electric pickup, the F-150 Lightning. An accessory that is surprising to say the least is part of the standard equipment of the vehicle: an adapter allowing the truck to recharge…
