Ford SHO-Star Concept

The Windstar SHOstar concept is a styling exercise, undoubtedly done as part of research into future minivan concepts. But it was also a part of Ford project to evaluate expanding use of the SHO V-6 engine into other product lines. Since the Windstar was based on the Ford Taurus chassis, it was a natural choice.

 

This is the second SHO-powered minivan prototype Ford has built over the years. Manufacturers continue to research performance minivans, but none have been put into production in this country yet.
The SHO-Star was built on the last body style Windstar.
Unlike the last SHO-powered concept, this one appears very much production-able.
Note the dual exhaust!
