How to tune your Transit van

  1. Ah, the Ford Transit. Beloved of White Van Man, traditionally served with a rolled-up newspaper on the dash and the gentle whiff of B&H.

    But not at the SEMA tuner show. Ford has descended upon this year’s Las Vegas mod-fest with not one, not two, but nine hopped-up Transit Connects. And there’s not a copy of the Daily Star in sight.

    As SEMA demands, the tuned Trannies boast lots of gold, huge alloy wheels, lowered suspension and a plethora of liveries to make you the envy of - or object of ridicule at - the building site.

    The idea, apparently, is to showcase the ‘versatility’ of the new Transit Connect van, though for some reason not one of these concepts has a roll of carpet poking precariously through a rope-tied rear door.

    Have a click through the gallery and see what you think. Reckon you can do any better? Photoshop your finest tuned Transits, and we’ll promise not to laugh. Best efforts get posted on later this week…

  2. ‘Blood & Grease’ turned a Transit into a mobile clothes boutique.

  3. CGS Motorsports’ mobile speed shop - bringing you much-needed performance parts to the drag strip. Handy for when your supercharger explodes.

  4. eJudged turned the Transit Connect into a mobile technology hot spot.

  5. Impulse Marketing & Media’s ‘baked delivery goods vehicle’. It’s a DOUGHNUT DELIVERY VAN. Make this happen, Ford. 

  6. K-Daddy Kustomz has rendered a Transit for the mobile graphic design enthusiast.

  7. LGE*CTS Motorsports’ Wagon is ‘ready for a cruise through European countryside’. Steady.

  8. Ford tells us the Mobsteel Transit “is ready to hit the street as a hot rod delivery vehicle”. Inside, there’s a wood-grain floor that jettisons out the back. Wheels are custom, if you hadn’t guessed.

  9. Pentech Automotive has created a gamer’s paradise: two driving sims have been nestled in the back of this Transit.

  10. Strange Motion’s Transit has been designed for its BMX team: there’s space for six bikes, and the humans required to operate said bikes.

    Oh, and one final Transit will be revealed at the show itself, so keep your eyes peeled…
