I’m not very familiar with the proceedings at the Birmingham van show but judging by recent events, it must be quite the important commercial situation.
I’m only saying this because Volkswagen launched the Caddy Racer, something to really put urgent in the courier delivery systems.
When Ford turned up with the SuperSportsVan concept it wasn’t much of a surprise since the Blue oval does have a past of making special vans like the SportVan.
But with Volkswagen painting a van in racing colors and a 2.0 liter petrol engine that develops a stunning (for a van) 270 horsepower.
Newly added 18 inch racing alloys covered in Hankook racing slicks, race-spec brakes, multi-link suspension and adjustable dampers make this delivery van more track ready than your sports cars.
Speaking of which, the Germans don’t really plan on slapping a cover on the VW Caddy Racer and instead they will be part of the support teams that tag along with British Formula 3 and GT championships.
Honors to the seat behind the wheel will be taken care of by Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles director, Mr. Simon Elliott.
Birmingham can be proud, it managed to attract my attention to some commercial vans, even though they are slightly different to the usual Volkswagen.
