A Caravan of Custom Transits are Going to SEMA
Five custom-built Ford Transits are rolling out to Las Vegas, Nevada for SEMA next week. The concept vans include Formula Drift, off-roaders and luxury rides.
The “Vegas Off-Road Experience Transit” is a desert race truck designed by the VORE group of South Boulder City, Nevada.
Off-road and premium features include: Custom LED interior lighting, five LED flat screens, 60-inch LED flat-screen partition, large-screen TV for external viewing, video gaming station, touch-screen tablet controls, LED light bars, HID headlamps, extended fender flares and off-road wheels and tires.
The “Galpin Auto Sports Transit Skyliner” was created jointly by Ford and Galpin Auto Sports of Van Nuys, California. The Transit Skyliner features custom-designed “throne” seats that are controlled by a smartphone or tablet.
Premium features include: 52-inch retractable movie screen, Focal Utopia 7.2 surround sound with custom-made speakers, satellite TV, Kaleidescape media server, integrated bar (a must) and matching luggage.
The “Formula DRIFT Transit” series is based in Long Beach, California and is billed as “the ultimate track support vehicle.” It has a custom interior workspace with TV, LED lighting, and a custom entertainment system from Clarion.
Other highlights include: a matching Kawasaki Mule track support vehicle that will be housed inside the Transit between events, storage bins for fire extinguishers, tools and cleanup equipment, fire suit and helmet racks, door-mounted flat panel monitor, performance air intake kit, performance exhaust system and performance suspension. That’s a lot of performance.
The “Business Class Transit” looks pretty serious and was created by Detroit Custom Coach of Oak Park, Michigan.This sleek van can seat up to eight people and even has a cocktail station with glass holders. Suh-weet!
Premium and convenience features include: actuated passenger entrance step, wood-grain flooring, laptop station, reclining, heated and massaging seats, color-changing LED lighting, flat-screen TVs, integrated iPad controls, Wi-Fi and motorized privacy shades.
And last but certainly not least is the “Designed Travel Transit” which looks amazing and was designed by Waldoch Crafts of Forest Lake, Minnesota and 3dCarbon & Air Design of Newport Beach, California.
The customized Transit sports a solid hickory wood floor, four reclining captain’s chairs with heating, cooling and massage functions, along with power headrests. Very nice.
