Las Vegas is the American dream for now, especially for the auto field, because the SEMA Auto Show has opened the gates. SEMA is the place where the most important car manufacturers and also tuners come to launch their new innovative products. And it’s a must have for the traditional American companies to be present here. Ford is one of them and among the things exhibited we can also admire the 2014 Ford Transit Connect, a concept car developed together with Hot Wheels.
This is how a Ford Transit Connect cargo van becomes the ultimate fantasy ride that any kid, big or small, would want to drive, especially since it wears the Hot Wheels logo. Actually, the hot rod van was designed and developed by Ice 9 Group, the specialists working at Ford and Hot Wheels. The three together have done a great job. The van is powered by a 4-cylinder, 2.5-liter Ti-VCT engine and has received a huge amount of changes, including a larger body which is four inches wider in the front and six inches at the back.
The 2014 Ford Transit Connect is equipped with gullwing doors, these replacing the standard doors that come with the standard version. Focus RS inspired the project, the Transit receiving an updated front fascia and bumpers with a modern look. The car sits on a set of 20 inch alloy wheels. The interior keeps the same playful wish as it is equipped with two 18-inch tablets installed in the rear doors and a huge 55-inch TV. It also has a Sortimo secondary floor with a set of drawers for tool storage to impress the “older” children. Some custom Recaro seats derived from the Focus RS have also been set inside the vehicle. The Hot Wheels Transit Connect is one of the 10 custom Transit Connect vehicles Ford is featuring at this year’s SEMA show and it looks quite nice.
