Ford has competed this year at the Pikes Peak Hill Climb. The US-based manufacturer has brought a special project for the 101st edition of the hill climb.

It is called Ford SuperVan 4.2 and it was driven by Romain Dumas. The new electric model comes with improved aerodynamics compared to the one seen last year at the Goodwood Festival of Speed (SuperVan 4.0). As you can imagine, these tweaks were developed for better handling over the 156 turns layed ahead by Pikes Peak.

The new model is less powerful than the 4.0 because the engineers have removed one of the electric motors. There are “only” three of them now, which means the total power is reduced from 1,972 HP to over 1,4000 HP.

The new powertrain setup places one motor in the front and two at the rear to maintain an all-wheel-drive layout.

Dumas was once again an artist behind the wheel of this van. The SuperVan 4.2 was the quickest electric vehicle up the mountain, the second quickest in the general top, and the fastest in the Pikes Peak Open class.
