ONE OF THE FIRST 97kW (130hp) V8-powered Sherpas built by Freight Rover (CM August 24) has begun evaluation trials with Buckingham Ambulance Service.
It is based on a long-wheelbase 330 chassis cab equipped with a Wadham Stringer Modular Interchangeable Ambulance Body (MIAB). A second V8 chassis is undergoing similar trials with the Lancashire Service.
The V8 engine option will be offered only on Sherpa 330 vans and chassis cabs for am
bulances and police applications. Full production versions of the ambulance model, which will have a lowered rear Suspension, will be available early next year.
