Adelaide, Albert Park added to SuperVan tour

FORD’S SuperVan 4.2 has added another two stops to its Australian tour following a successful shakedown yesterday at Sydney Motorsport Park.

Powered by four electric motors generating 2000hp, the SuperVan 4.2 will cut demonstration laps during the Bathurst SuperFest, which takes in both the GT3-based 12 Hour this weekend and Supercars’ season-opener next weekend.

Beyond that, the vehicle is now confirmed to make appearances at the Repco Adelaide Motorsport Festival (March 16-17) and the Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix (March 21-24).

A “special surprise guest driver” has been promised for the Albert Park outing.

French veteran Romain Dumas will steer the SuperVan 4.2 at Mount Panorama.

“SuperVan 4.2 was built to thrill crowds, and demonstrate the capability of Ford’s electric performance vehicles, so we are very excited to be able to show more Aussies what makes this the most exciting van on earth,” said Sriram Pakkam of Ford Performance.

Ford Australia president and CEO Andrew Birkic is looking forward to seeing the show.

“Ford is on an exciting electrification pathway, and SuperVan 4.2 is a great illustration of what electrified performance can mean,” he said.

“With more stops added to the SuperVan tour in Australia, EV and performance fans around the country will be given an opportunity to see this feat of engineering and the next-level performance it delivers.”
