Step in to Ford’s latest concept car and you will have stepped into a secret world of luxury normally kept out of view…

The American automaker just revealed its Transit Skyliner Concept with four dramatic modes: theater, business, reception and travel. Inside, the commercial van now features custom-designed “throne” seats that are movable and can be repositioned automatically, controlled by a smartphone or tablet. The result is a versatile commercial van that takes advantage of the Transit’s 487 cubic feet of interior space.

In theater mode, the custom van has the seats facing the 52-inch retractable Stewart movie screen and recline for optimal cinematic viewing, while in business mode, a motorized table unfolds so that the leather-trimmed seats can gather around for a face-to-face conversation. If the Transit is attending an event, the sliding doors can open four-feet wide and the seats can be arranged for easy entertaining. Lastly, the travel mode can have passengers adjusting their reclining seats and retractable footrests for ultimate comfort and relaxation. There’s even in a built-in bar and matching custom luggage components to the vehicle’s interior.

On the outside, the Ford Transit received a custom silver metallic paint scheme that has been contrasted by custom Forgiato wheels.
