Inside, it's a van. This means there's loads of space behind the driver. But for the purposes of Dumas' runs up the hill, Ford has fitted the SuperVan with a full roll cage and racing seats to FIA standards for safety.

By now you would have noticed the large screen. This houses the SYNC infotainment touchscreen and was pinched straight from the Mach-E, TopGear reports. Ford reckons if Dumas gets tired of driving the van up the hill, he can simply find an electric charger, link up to WiFi and make phone calls – all via the SYNC infotainment screen.

We reckon he'll be too busy trying out the different driving modes which include, Road, Track, Drag, Drift and Rally.
